Making Free Pay Seminar — Speakers

London—March 27th: We’ve put together a seminar with the aim to give music and video businesses a deeper understanding of the market’s direction, helping you define your organisation’s approach and role in the streaming world.

The programme will focus on the value free streaming music and video tiers deliver to consumers and the impact they have directly and indirectly on the revenue generating potential of premium subscription tiers.

Some areas we will be addressing:
> Fiercer competition for audience time in the peak attention economy – which companies are successfully navigating this territory
> Paywalls and closed ecosystems locking in users’ attention – can outsiders still gain access to these locked in users?
> Striking the right balance between free and paid across regions – how many more consumers will make the path from ad-supported to subscription?

Reserve your tickets here.
