The Conference runs from November 15 through to 17, and offers three days of talks, panels, workshops and exchanges with industry professionals on a host of pivotal topics.

And this year the theme of the conference will focus on “Survival of the Fittest!”

She has a proven track record of nurturing ideas and relationships to build properties with enduring appeal and cross-border resonance.

Natalie Osborne will be one of the panelists on the China 101: Breaking the Wall session, which runs from 3:15pm to 4:15 p.m, on Wednesday November 15. 

It’s focus will be on the big and fast paced content market in China, and the panelists will be sharing their insights on creating content for this fascinating market!
