Future Talks: Is Technolog­y Killing Entertain­ment?

February 27, 2024 | 17:00 - 19:30

Here East invites you to the fourth installment of its Future Talks series, exploring Is Technology Killing Entertainment?

We’re in a new era of entertainment – one that has been radically changed and enhanced by innovations such as Abba Voyage or Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour which brought her live concert experience into fans’ homes. This is juxtaposed with a rising tide of concern, exemplified by Hollywood’s recent writer and actor strikes, alongside lawsuits by major publishers and record labels on AI’s infringement of copyright laws. It leaves us with a big question to discuss – is technology changing the world of entertainment for better or worse and what does its future hold?

Taking place at Here East in Plexal, the event will bring together leaders from business, the entertainment industry, and academia, and together, we will explore how technology will change the entertainment industry, as well as looking at London as an entertainment hub and what needs to be done for the city to be seen as a global leader.

The event will include networking with drinks and canapés plus a keynote presentation followed by a lively panel discussion.
