DPP Innovation Week to kickstart new business relationships

The DPP, the media industry’s business network, has today announced that a new event series, DPP Innovation Week, will take place 1-4 September 2020. DPP Innovation Week is an opportunity for DPP members to showcase their latest innovations, and for technology users to learn about what’s new, without needing to do hours of research.

The DPP’s core purpose is to bring customers and suppliers together to exchange information and insights, and create business opportunities. But right now, the whole industry is having to operate remotely with limited ability to make those all important business connections.

“Overall, companies are dealing with this well.” said Mark Harrison, DPP Managing Director, “But the biggest challenge – they tell us – is around new business. How do suppliers tell customers about new products and services – and how do customers get to hear what’s new and exciting? To help meet this challenge we’re hosting DPP Innovation Week – a series of online speed pitching events.”

DPP Innovation Week is an opportunity for companies to see what each other are doing – to understand the market, or to form partnerships. It is a way of bringing suppliers and customers together – while respecting busy calendars.

DPP member companies have submitted proposals for pitches for their new and innovative products and services. These pitches have been split into eight 45 minute webinars, each featuring a maximum of nine pitches grouped around a common theme.

Companies will need to deliver their pitches in a maximum of three minutes, and the DPP will then make connections between interested customers and suppliers.

The themes are:

● Remote Production – Live
● Remote Production – Prerecorded
● Media Processing
● Media Workflow
● OTT Distribution
● Audiences & Data
● Live IP Video
● Business Services

DPP members can sign up to attend on the DPP website: https://www.thedpp.com/dpp-innovation-week. These events will also be made available to other end users who wish to attend, from content provider companies.

The DPP’s next report and event, at the end of August, will be Design for Tomorrow: Key Design Principles, defining the common principles that need to inform the design of all media businesses in the wake of the pandemic. It will then be followed by five other reports and events in the Design for Tomorrow series, a major research project looking at the key principles that will increase resilience and growth in the post Coronavirus media economy, due to be delivered between September and November 2020.
