Indonesian tycoon Hary Tanoesoedibjo will join the ATF Leaders’ Summit speaker line-up. He adds to the list of C-Level executives, and will be representing top content brands like Amazon Prime and Marvel Entertainment on 28 November 2017.
From 28 to 30 November 2017, more than 90 thought leaders will deliver fresh insight at over 24 ATF conference sessions, discussing present-day issues such as big data, movement in the over-the-top (OTT) scene, new monetisation strategies, unscripted entertainment formats and kids content.
Yeow Hui Leng, Senior Project Director of ATF and ScreenSingapore said, “In cementing our position as the content industry’s gateway to a rising Asia, ATF has always sought to present the most relevant speakers, to keep delegates abreast of major industry developments and shifts. The addition of Hary Tanoesoedibjo – a prominent figure in Indonesia’s media scene – is a testament to ATF’s standing. With many a-list content experts headlining the ATF 2017 conference, we are confident that attendees will receive critical knowledge as they plan for the new year.”
Hary Tanoesoedibjo to uncover the might of Indonesia
In his position as the founder and chairman of MNC Group, Hary Tanoesoedibjo will deep-dive into “The Might of Indonesia”, and shed light on how Indonesia’s largest media group is shaping the country’s media landscape in the year to come.
MNC Group is also one of Southeast Asia’s most well-established media conglomerates, boasting media assets such as four national free-to-air televisions (RCTI, MNCTV, GTV and iNews), a wide-reaching direct- to-home Pay TV service (MNC Vision), a fixed broadband network and IPTV (MNC Play) as well as an OTT service (MNC Now).
Hary’s presentation at the ATF Leaders’ Summit adds to other initiatives where ATF will place a spotlight on Indonesia, in conjunction with the Singapore Media Festival’s Country of Focus initiative. At “Networking Breakfast – Spotlight on Indonesia 2017”, global market intelligence firm IDC will share its latest data on the country’s TV market.
Indonesia will also have a strong showing on the market floor. Content producers looking to sell into Southeast Asia’s most populous nation can look forward to interacting with buyers representing broadcasters and platforms such as Hooq, Indonesia Entertainment Group, MNC Contents and PT Cakrawala Andalas Televisi Antv.
