A networking drinks reception will follow the conference. The Observatory and Nevafilm will present their new report on the Russian television and video on demand market. This new report will be available free for download following the conference.

The legal framework for broadcasting in Europe will be presented by Maja Cappello, the Observatory’s Head of Department for Legal Information.

A Russian panel discussion with professionals from the television and VOD sectors will then provide insight on the challenges for Russian professionals working with Europe.
