History Makers 2010 will be truly International in its scope and delegate mix, and this year we want to make sure that our program reflects this emphasis. Our themes of Investigation and Archives transcend borders, so session participants will be globally represented, making History Makers the ideal place to meet the key Commissioning Editors and producers from around the world. Last year we attracted participants from 20 countries. As well, our Awards will be expanded to include the individuals and programs that exhibit excellence in Investigation.
We will continue to keep History Makers relatively small, friendly and provocative with a number of new developments and surprise Headliners. We’ll also continue to look at the latest programming trends, changes in technology, new platforms, the spread of digital and high definition services and new video-on-demand channels.
In order to ensure the most successful event ever, History Makers 2010 will bring in the very best in headliners, provocative thinkers, journalists and producers that will challenge delegates with their ideas and experiences. Current thinking and trends which inspire the world’s best programs and program creators, will be revealed through high-profile Keynote addresses, master classes, debates and workshops. We’ll examine new trends in history and current affairs programming and introduce new success strategies for producers.
In addition to the formal program, this event will be characterized by the constant buzz of meetings where new projects are pitched, discussed and are born. Lastly, the Summit will honour the year’s outstanding programs and their makers with special awards.
