Prominent Indonesian media mogul to headline Asia TV Forum & Market 2017


Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF) today announces that Indonesian magnate, Hary Tanoesoedibjo, has joined the ATF Leaders’ Summit (28 November 2017) speaker line-up, adding to the list of C-Level executives presenting at the ATF Conference, who represent leading content brands such as Amazon Prime, Marvel Entertainment, PCCW Media Group and Sony Pictures Television.


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.


Industry powerhouses to share essential knowledge at more than 24 conference sessions


Along with the Indonesian media mogul, various distinguished content business veterans will delve into content business-technology strategy at the ATF Leaders’ Summit. Another key session for the day will gather head-honchos of leading OTT platforms – James Farrell, Head of Content, Amazon Prime (APAC); Janice Lee, Managing Director, PCCW Media Group; Mark Britt, Co-Founder & CEO, iflix; and Peter Bithos, CEO, HOOQ – to deliberate “The Evolution of Storytelling” in today’s omni-platform environment.


New investment opportunities and business models that have arisen from today’s digital rituals will be brought to the fore at “Digital Traditions & Innovations”. Speakers include Alexander Shulgin, Futurist & Venture Capitalist, Familia Group; Dhruv S Sinha, Head for Hollywood & Overseas Business, Reliance Entertainment; George Chien, Executive Vice President (Networks), Sony Pictures Television; and Parminder Singh, Chief Commercial and Digital Officer, Mediacorp.


Other sessions at the ATF Leaders’ Summit will facilitate discussions on big data, leveraging content for consumer engagement, monetisation strategies, technology-driven content and significant leadership shifts in the APAC region.


“The Content Connection” track on 29 November 2017 will spotlight strategic opportunities amid dynamic market conditions. Asian and international businesses keen to learn from the best in China can bookmark “China Exclusive: C2C, The New Content Monetisation Phenomena”, and look forward to hearing from the likes of Christine Qian, Founder & CEO, Media 360; Xun Zhang, Founder & CEO, Konnexions Media; Zhiqiang Lin, Executive Deputy Director, SMG New Media Business Unit; Zhixing Fan, Co-founder / Founder, Yitiao; and Zhou Hao, Vice President, IPCN. Other sessions on this day will focus on fresh content, as well as the biggest buyers, from the booming Asian markets of India and South Korea.


And on 30 November 2017, the “Production Day” conference track will seek to grow industry capabilities. Format experts Hwang Jin-woo, Head of Formats & Global Content Development, CJ E&M; Laura Burrell, Head of Formats, Viacom International Media Networks; Michael Dick, Vice President, Acquisition, Management and Content Acquisitions, Fox Networks Group Asia; and Stephen Lambert, CEO, Studio Lambert will convene for the day’s keynote panel on “Superformats – License to Last”, a sharing on the ingredients for successful formats.


Kids content will also be a feature on this day. At the panel on “The 360 Experience Kids Want”, executives behind the successes of Baby Shark, Peppa Pig, Chhota Bheem and Marvel characters will share their experience in creating compelling all-rounded experiences for young audiences. Leading the session as moderator, Don Anderson, Head of Family & Learning Partnerships, YouTube APAC, will direct one of the most captivating of gatherings with Hyemin Gemma Joo, Senior Manager (Media Distribution), SmartStudy (Baby Shark); Olivier Dumont, Managing Director, Family & Licensing, Entertainment One (Peppa Pig); Rajiv Chilaka, Founder & CEO, Green Gold Animation Pvt Ltd (Chhota Bheem); and Sana Amanat, Director of Content & Character Development, Marvel Entertainment.


Known to many as the co-creator of Marvel’s first Muslim superhero, Kamala Khan (also known as Ms. Marvel), Sana Amanat is also credited for the rebooted Captain Marvel and helped launch the Women of Marvel panels. At ATF, she will also discuss “Creative Thinking and Storytelling”, with Don Anderson in a candid fireside chat.


Cable and satellite television network giant, HBO, will also take the stage with a keynote presentation by David Levine, Co-Head, HBO Drama Series Home Box Office. This will be followed by “The Directors’ Collective”, where Jessica Kam, Senior Vice President (HBO Asia Original Productions), HBO Asia, will deep-dive into present-day movements and partnerships in Asia. She will be joined by directors Ho Yu Hang, Joko Anwar and Lee Sang-woo. The panel will be moderated by Daniel Yun, Veteran Film Producer, Blue3 Asia.

With this year’s strong line-up of speakers, the ATF conference will certainly provide essential knowhow for delegates to shape their businesses and thrive in the ever-evolving content landscape,” concluded Yeow Hui Leng.
