International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Features FanTrust in Emmy Almanac Winner’s Edition
New York/Vancouver – February 23, 2010 – Each year, the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences publishes its Emmy Almanac Winners’ Edition, showcasing the Academy’s activities and serving as a “Who’s Who” of media and entertainment. As an authority on “Competing in the Digital Space,” FanTrust President Catherine Warren was among those featured in the newly published 2009-2010 edition.
“It takes tremendous ingenuity and business acumen to compete in the ever-shifting digital environment,” said Warren, whose management consultancy FanTrust provides media deal-making and strategic advice to entertainment companies on digital financing, revenues, productions and audiences. “But as competition heats up so do collaborations – so expect to see more innovative cross-platform deals and digital strange bedfellows in the year ahead.”
With a readership of 60,000 made up of key people in the international media marketplace, this glossy publication will also be circulated throughout the year at Emmy Galas and entertainment trade events.
