FAANGS trends – exclusively by K7 Media at KMW 2018

6 July 2018, 11:59

International media consultancy K7 Media has been appointed as official Knowledge Partner at KYIV MEDIA WEEK, this September. For the fourth consecutive year K7 Media will present at the event, talking through the latest trends and insights in programming from around the world. 

K7 Media’s Communications Manager, David Ciaramella, will host a session focusing on the FAANGS (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, Google and Snapchat), in which he will shine a light on how the world’s biggest digital players are developing their video offerings. 

The discussion will address the secrecy surrounding commissions from the FAANGS and the ongoing impact this has on industry trends and developments. It will look at the different approaches taken by the platforms and highlight key shows in both scripted and unscripted programming.

Speaking on the partnership, David commented: “We are delighted to continue our work with KYIV MEDIA WEEK. It has been fantastic to see the festival develop and service a territory which remains largely unexplored. The FAANGS are notoriously shadowy and continue to create new and interesting challenges for the industry as a whole. Far from providing a clear formula for success, the industry often finds itself forced to beat a new path to find success with online programming”.  

K7 Media provides insight and intelligence to the world’s biggest media brands and will host two insight sessions exclusively for attendees of the festival. For more information – follow the updates on KMW website and the official Facebook page.
