Media Supply Festival 2024

Software defined content supply chains, often built in the cloud, are a staple of today’s media industry. Increasingly, they are highly automated, and led by data.

Yet even as we look to the next generation of machine learning solutions to unlock new efficiencies and revenue opportunities, media companies still find that integration between partners, and the exchange of content and business data, remain fraught with friction.

That’s why we must share best practices and work together to define tomorrow’s media supply chain.

The Media Supply Festival brings together content companies, cloud providers, integrators, and startups to explore this revolution in content preparation and delivery.

As always, this DPP event is free for members to attend.

A limited number of non members are also invited to attend by purchasing a ticket. If you have a ticket but can no longer attend, you will be issued a full refund up until Wednesday 15 May OR you can transfer your ticket to a colleague.

If you experience any problems registering for DPP events or watching any online events, please contact events@thedpp.com.

10:00 Putting the supply in supply chain

Imagine an industry that wasn’t really sure what would be arriving at its factory when. Incredible? Well that’s the media industry. So why is our understanding of the content pipeline so poor; how can it get better; and just what does the pipeline look like for the year ahead?
