The 4th annual Comedy International Conference will take place on Thursday 3rd October 2013 at the Pleasance London
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is well on it’s way and with Comedy making up approximately 33% of this month long event a large part of the industry is occupied with the 15,000 performances going on, including our host & venue The Pleasance. As organisers say “About time we dedicate a panel discussion to this annual phenomenon!
As per previous years the Comedy International Conference will present 4 panels. A sneak preview of what you can expect this year:
– CIC will open the day by Comparing the Market, looking into new and exciting regions plus following up on international developments that have taken place in the last year, often as a direct result of contacts made at the CIC.
– After a short tea break CIC will continue to explore the market, not geographically but more topical, by discussing the performances that take place outside the regular Comedy venue, such as corporate shows.
– During the afternoon, the CIC Marketing panel will continue where the Ticketing panel ended last year – with questions about “Data”. We will take this a step further and look at all the different ways of data collection and how to use these data and turn them into profit.
– Last but not least, we will discuss several elements of Comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe; in a constructive dialogue.
