That’s a wrap for another Edinburgh Festival Fringe full of Comedy. We hope you all had a great month. Time to catch up, reflect and plan ahead. With the Conference just over a month away, if you have not registered yet, please make sure to book your delegates place as soon as possible.
As per previous years the Comedy International Conference will present 4 panels. A sneak preview of what you can expect this year:
The first panel of the day “Compare the Market“, looks forward into new geographical locations and back on the developments in markets we have focussed on during the Conference in previous years. In the last 5 years many new opportunities have been presented, we aim to continue this and help consolidate and encourage further expansion.
Means to achieve growth often include working together, one way to consolidate relationships is by “Working together in Association“. The second panel of the day will see the introduction of several Industry Associations – a chance to discuss further possibilities to operate together.
After lunch we will dig even “Deeper into Data” than last year, with the presentation of the results of some interesting Comedy audience research. In addition we will direct our marketing angle onto PR & brand / reputation management, discussing publicity from talent to brand such as venues, festivals and the perception of the management companies behind them, asking how the audience chooses their tickets.
Finally, to celebrate 5 years of industry discussion at this Comedy International Conference anniversary edition – we will look at the “History of the industry” with a focus on the “People behind the Talent” who are driving their businesses year in year out. Apart from looking at the passion and successes of these experienced masterminds, we are aiming to meet some new faces and names of the next generation of the international comedy industry.
