For The First Time, Digital Video Game Content Will Be Included
ENCINO, CA (April 15, 2013) … The 2013 Digital Media Pipeline conference will be held on
September 24, 2013 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles and, for the first time, will
add discussions on digital video game distribution and retailing, the Entertainment Merchants
Association (EMA) announced today. Digital Media Pipeline is a one-day B2B event that brings
together executives from leading providers of digital entertainment content as well as key
retailers and distributors, content aggregators, service providers and new technology companies
to discuss digital delivery of home entertainment.
“This will be the fifth year that EMA has presented Digital Media Pipeline, and the event has
grown along with the digital delivery sector,” noted EMA President & CEO Mark Fisher. “We
are pleased that it has become a vital forum for this dynamic business. And given the increasing
importance of the digital delivery channel to the video game market, it makes sense to include
discussion of digital video games in the conference.”
Recognizing that Digital Media Pipeline is “Where Entertainment and Technology Meet,” this
year’s program will address topics such as:
• The latest device and delivery technologies
• Digital retailing
• Current and emerging business models
• Consumer trends in digital entertainment
• Developments in content
• Projections for growth and monetization
Mitch Mallon, Senior Vice President, Digital Sales for RLJ Entertainment and chairman of the
steering committee for Digital Media Pipeline, said, “The conference is designed to allow leaders
in the digital entertainment community to come together in a format that facilitates information
sharing, industry collaboration, and business relationship development. Each year we develop the
program to focus on the key industry developments and emerging trends.”
Digital Media Pipeline provides excellent opportunities to network with other leading industry
professionals throughout the day, including at the “Skip the Traffic” cocktail party at the
conclusion of the conference. EMA will also present its annual DIGI awards at the conference.
These awards recognize outstanding achievement in digital entertainment retailing, content, and
