London (PRWEB) September 9, 2005
RoadShow Europe is the movie industryÂs only European marketing and promotional event. Senior brand managers, retailers and agency executives focused on the European marketplace will be introduced to upcoming film and home entertainment marketing opportunities by the eight major film studios. This yearÂs event also introduces the Key Insights Forum, a full day of presentations from top entertainment and brand marketing executives to discuss topics relevant to marketers today.
"Based on requests from last yearÂs attendees for more film marketing education and networking, the Key Insights Forum was an integral element to add to this yearÂs schedule," said Mitch Litvak, President of The L.A. Office. "Attendees will be able to learn about past programmes and techniques which will allow them to fully maximize their future partnership opportunities." The event will take place here in London at the Empire Cinema, Leicester Square on October 24-25 2005.
Returning for its second year, top entertainment marketing executives will present their upcoming releases in a unique RoadShow "show-and-tell" format to an audience representing hundreds of companies, large and small. Last yearÂs attendees included major European brands, cutting edge technology companies as well as multiple advertising and promotion agency executives.
"RoadShow Europe was successful for us in terms of the number of quality contacts in the film industry we were able to make," said Bryony Clow of Vodafone. "Bottom line is we think it was money well spent to gain the contacts."
