c/o pop Convention

The c/o pop convention returns with an exciting programme to secure its reputation as a key platform for the music, media and entertainment industries.
In line with its motto “We care about independent pop culture”, the c/o pop convention will tackle a range of new issues head on – exploring in particular the central questions of content distribution. How does content get to the consumer? Who organises its distribution and to whom do the channels belong through which it flows?
The topic will be broken down into two main areas of focus – “branded entertainment: brands and music” and “avenues of content distribution (live to digital)”.
The convention will look at the latest developments in the field of digital entertainment and highlight current movements and emerging trends in the music industry in Germany and abroad.

The convention has invited speakers and guests from over 25 countries: people involved in the culture and creative industries, representatives from the world of advertising, start ups, artists, producers and marketeers from the various content sectors, all of whom will use the convention to exchange insights, form contacts and take advantage of new business opportunities.
To facilitate networking and promote synergy, the c/o pop convention will be pitching its tents once again in the Kölnischer Kunstverein and the Fritz Thyssen Stiftung für Wissenschaftsförderung, thus ensuring that the c/o pop convention continues to take place in the immediate vicinity of the c/o pop festival.
