The cinema sector has been one of the most affected sectors during the COVID Pandemic. Forced closures, capacity limits and uncertainty over content releases and distribution have severely challenged the industry.
Now the sector is reopening with big blockbusters being released and government restrictions eased. Our seminar focuses on how the sector is recovering, how cinema-goers are responding and how key trends in the sector have been accelerated.
David Hancock from Omdia will give a presentation on key market statistics and global trends, followed by Sarah Lethwaite from Movio who will present on cinema consumer behaviour and trends. Movio specialise in tracking cinema customers and their behaviour.
This discussion panel will be chaired by Amanda Nevill, CBE who is a specialist advisor to the screen industries and was CEO of the British Film Institute.
The panel will have a discussion about key trends in the market, how cinema consumers are reacting, and what the future may hold for the industry. With 3 months of meaningful data since reopening in the UK, the session will give attendees data-driven analysis of the state of the sector.
Those attending in person can join a networking session immediately afterwards in the Vue Bar, adjacent to the theatre screen.
This event will also be available as a video recording after the event.
