International media consultancy K7 Media has been appointed as official Knowledge Partner at Kyiv Media Week, this September.
For the fourth consecutive year, Manchester-based K7 Media will present at the event, talking through the latest trends and insights in programming from around the world.
K7 Media’s Communications Manager, David Ciaramella, will host a session focusing on the FAANGS (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google and Snapchat), in which he will shine a light on how the world’s biggest digital players are developing their video offerings.
The discussion will address the secrecy surrounding commissions from the FAANGS and the ongoing impact this has on industry trends and developments. It will look at the different approaches taken by the platforms and highlight key shows in both scripted and unscripted programming.
Speaking on the partnership, David commented: “We are delighted to continue our work with Kyiv Media Week. It has been fantastic to see the festival develop and service a territory which remains largely unexplored.
“The FAANGS are notoriously shadowy and continue to create new and interesting challenges for the industry as a whole. Far from providing a clear formula for success, the industry often finds itself forced to beat a new path to find success with online programming.”
Kyiv Media Week will introduce a completely new format for 2018 and will see the addition of thematic exhibitions. The new format will expand on the range of events and activities available to attendees, making it easier to tailor an individual programme of events.
