In a world first, senior media and technology executives from Australia and the US will convene simultaneously at the Future of Media Summit to compare industry structure, technology, and audiences and help develop clear media strategies in a time of rapid and revolutionary change

Panel conversations in Sydney and San Francisco will be linked through live video links, blogs, and audience interaction. The lunch session of the Sydney conference on 19 July will be connected with an evening reception in San Francisco on 18 July.

Media experts include global media thought leaders such as Chris Anderson, editor in chief of Wired magazine, John Hagel, author of Net Worth and other bestsellers, David Sifry, CEO of the world’s leading blog search engine Technorati, Jack Matthews, CEO of Fairfax Digital, and many other key media leaders.

“Understanding the future of media is critical, not just for media players and companies involved in marketing, technology, and communications, but also for individuals and the government,” says Ross Dawson, the Chairman of Future Exploration Network. “Media affects all of us.” The Summit is designed to help clarify complex shifts in today’s media and tomorrow’s environments.

The Future of Media Summit will also be ground-breaking by having no speeches or presentations. It will consist entirely of authentic conversations among thought leaders and audience participants. The use of wireless Internet will allow all Summit participants to submit live commentary, viewable by all participants on screens.

The Summit is not only an event, but also a forum for ideas to guide media business strategy. The summit sessions are practical and conversational. They are for executives, directors, users and practitioners having immediate, practical needs to understand and master the future of media.

The Future of Media Summit 2006 will be held simultaneously in Sydney and San Francisco on 18/19 July. The Summit will be staged in Australia at the American Club, 131 Macquarie Street, Sydney and at the World Trade Club, One Ferry Plaza, San Francisco.
