EMA Hosts Los Angeles Entertainment Summit

The Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA) is holding its annual Los Angeles Entertainment Summit event this week (July 23-24) in Los Angeles. The event brought together nearly 1,000 people from dozens of entertainment companies for two days of business meetings, tech displays, and seminars focused on the state of the entertainment industry.

"We’ve gotten both the gaming and video industries together to celebrate our success, and to look forward to what’s next,” said EMA president and CEO Mark Fisher. "It’s been efficient, effective, productive, and [attendees] are having fun."

Besides business, attendees enjoyed a golf tournament, a welcome reception, a casino night, and a Tech Tour featuring products from an estimated 21 companies, including Flixster, Cisco, M-Go, Nvidia, Rovi, Sony Entertainment Network and Verizon.

The events were designed to also help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a founding partner.

CFF offered plenty of donation opportunities at the golf and poker tournaments and presented a lot of information on cystic fibrosis and how it affects people to attendees. Hopefully the EMA will release some details on the amount of money raised for CFF after the event concludes…
