Crowne Plaza Hotel, Times Square, New York City
Attracting producers and broadcasters from over 20 countries actively pursuing partnerships, the Impact Media Summit brings together the world’s best program makers to share their insights on this year's significant events affecting programming, while also looking forward to future trends in history, archives, and investigative and social issue programming. This is an exciting time and History is hotter than ever. This year Historical Dramatic mini-series proved to be the biggest thing in linear television, global media is preparing for the 100th anniversary of WW1 and BIG History academic theory is making its way into popular media. Our industry is also continuing to adapt to Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD) and mobile services in the consumer media landscape.
The Impact Media Summit will deliver and celebrate content that inspires, informs, engages and entertains and will continue to be the one event on the annual calendar that uniquely focuses on the history content category.
Also presented at the Impact Media Summit, the Impact Media Awards will recognize the very best in History, Current Affairs, Archives and Documentary programming, across TV and digital platforms. Last year, nine categories were awarded in a gala ceremony celebrating the world’s best, hosted by renowned journalist, Paula Zahn.
