What a day, What an event!
The Genesis Cinema in Mile End, London was packed on Thursday October 16, with 250 delegates from 22 countries worldwide, all there to network, make new friends, catch up with old friends and debate the issues that face the event industry in 2014.
Topics were dealt with uniquely in depth, this time in break out sessions, led by industry experts covering issues as broad as production and financing, rights acquisition and downstream rights, and technicalities in live delivery.
The ECA would like to thank the following sponsors for their contribution and support in helping us host our second ECA Conference:
We would also like to say a huge thank you to Creative Skillset, a UK government agency who have identified event cinema as a sector that requires funding to address a skills shortage.
"It is rare for sponsors to reflect back on an event and feel that there was good value for money. In the case of yesterday's ECA conference, we were unanimous that the money was well spent and that you as organisers provided lots of added value that we were not expecting…
We had our full Board meeting yesterday and covered our impressions of the event with all Board members, sharing the collateral produced, who were suitably impressed. So thanks! It was good."
DAVID WEST - SOUND ASSOCIATES
"Happy and proud to be part of such a terrific event. I feel that I got a lot out of it, both listening to the people on stage and talking to the delegates in the intervals. The general consensus seems to have been that those who attended were very happy and the ones who also went the first year felt that it had gone up from an already excellent starting point."

"Hope you had a really well deserved rest after such a heavy week last week and well done on achieving such a fantastic outcome on all fronts!!
