ABC Commercial partners with Open Channel for GENERATION NEXT KIDS CONFERENCE

ABC Commercial’s Content Sales department is pleased to announce it will once again be presenting at Open Channel’s GENERATION NEXT KIDS CONFERENCE, with an even bigger team in attendance. The conference will be held at the Docklands Studios in Melbourne on 22nd and 23rd July.

In addition to presenting there, ABC Commercial will be sponsoring a series of round table conversations with emerging program makers. This is the latest move in ABC Commercial Content Sales’ push to support and invest in up-and-coming filmmakers and projects, as well as established practitioners.

Natalie Lawley, Manager Content Sales, together with a team from ABC Commercial, will be attending the conference, and will participate in the distribution panel and round table pitching sessions to engage with attendees, mainly screen and gaming practitioners.

“I’m very excited to be involved in the Open Channel conference and look forward to meeting with, and hearing ideas from, up and coming practitioners in the industry”, Ms Lawley said. “And hopefully we’ll find some great new projects to invest in!”

This 4th conference - part of Open Channels Generation Next brand - explores the tech savvy world of Kids. The conference comes at an important juncture in the kids market, as the climate for digital and gaming content continues to grow and present new opportunities for our emerging practitioners.

Marc Gracie, Acting Executive Director, Open Channel remarked “The Generation Next conference agenda is very practical and we take a hands-on approach as we deliver information about how to fund ideas through to the realisation of the concept. Having the support of the broadcast and distribution community is critical and we are delighted to be expanding our relationship with ABC Commercial and bringing real opportunities to the emerging sector.”
