IPTV: Best Distribution Option in Asia?

Entertainment Asia Network, Inc. (EAN) has announced its agenda and list of confirmed speakers for the upcoming Asia Pacific Entertainment & Media (APEM) Summit 2007 to be held at Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles on October 17-18, 2007.

The two day executive-level conference is the most Asia-focused entertainment industry event for companies who look to do business and learn more about the film, TV, video game, mobile and Internet content industries in Asia, the fastest growing market in the world today. Industry veterans will discuss and analyze key issues from Asia's entertainment industry that are affecting today's global market and business strategies.
