"I feel very fortunate to be a speaker at UbiQ Paris because there is simply no other event like it. This is exactly what the international digital entertainment industry needs right now." - Gwen Bethel Riley, Head of Music Business Affairs, DISNEY MOBILE

With three months to go before UbiQ - the first international digital entertainment showcase, conference and exhibition - opens its doors for its inaugural edition, CEO Gwenael Flatres announced today the participation of digital heavyweights such as Disney Mobile US, Viacom International Media Networks, Samsung Electronics, Endemol, Deezer, Ooyala, HTC, Orange, GloboTV and BBC Worldwide at the June event in Paris.

The diversity and quality of the speakers and participants – over 90 companies participating to date, 75% are from outside of the host country France - UbiQ is proving that its original concept is both timely and unique. Bringing together industry leaders from across the international digital entertainment spectrum - television, music, radio, games, mobile apps, branded entertainment and publishers to share experience, the recurrent theme of UbiQ. The two-day show will present speakers that develop UbiQ’s four major conference angles on how to Capture, Engage, Monetize and Measure ROI.
