This two day executive event features high-level debates on which forces are disrupting user behavior and creating new opportunities, content strategies and monetization schemes in the video, music, gaming, and mobile industries.
"This year's OnHollywood 100 companies represent the future of entertainment and spotlight how technology and digital media have and will continue to deeply impact the entertainment industry as we know it," said Tony Perkins, founder and CEO of AlwaysOn. "Despite the economic downturn, the pace of innovation continues to progress, making this year's selection even more difficult.
