Global Entertainment Media Summit (GEMS)
Music. Film. Media. New Media. Distribution.
The Leading Event Dedicated to Solutions for the Creative Industries Returns May 14-15

The music, film, media and new media worlds are getting together for one of the most
productive industry events you'll ever attend.

You're invited to participate in one of the most cutting-edge and promotionally productive
entertainment industry events dedicated to artistic creative control. There's no doubt about it,
the entire entertainment industry is changing. With the merger of BMG and SONY, Netflix and
TiVo, with Broadband access going into the power lines, and with film studios, record companies
and media companies merging and consolidating, there is an incredible and powerful opportunity
in being independent. For the independently thinking artist and businessman, it's an incredible
time of opportunity.

Whether or not you're in an independent band or signed to a major label, or an independent filmmaker
or major studio, we all know and realize that todays technology has created new opportunities for each
and everyone of us to connect with our fans while creating new ones, as well as create new possibilities
for our careers and lifestyles
