Eyes & Ears Conference 2017

​8 May / Cologne

Keynote Speakers

Dale Herigstad
Advanced Interaction Consultant ISOVIST, London
The winner of the Eyes & Ears Excellence Award 2016 has been working as a designer for more than 30 years and has always had an eye on the future of the medium of television in all these years. The multiscreen society that Steven Spielberg built around Tom Cruise in 'Minority Report' (2002) is based on concepts and designs by Dale Herigstad. At that time, Dale already combined screens with human gestures and the surrounding space. He defined the look and feel of "New Television".

Martin Lambie-Nairn
Creative Director & Brand Design ML-N, London
​Martin Lambie-Nairn – the Royal Designer and Creative Director behind major brands such as BBC, O2, Channel 4, The Royal Opera House and for many broadcasters around the globe – gives his unique view on the role of digital and technological advances and their role in the branding process. The talk aims to turn conventional wisdom on its head and explore the enduring importance of business thinking, craft and the merits of being wary of technology for technology’s sake, plus a few meteors of inspiration along the way.

SHIFT YOUR MIND

Digital change continues to change the media industry. In addition to a large number of well-established TV stations, digital broadcasters and online providers are also competing for the favour of the audience. "SHIFT YOUR MIND" is therefore the theme of the Eyes & Ears Conference 2017. It was never so important for industry actors to take into account the latest trends and perspectives in their day-to-day work.

​Keep an eye on trends, perspectives and chances

At the Eyes & Ears Conference industry players will have the opportunity to keep track of current projects, trends, perspectives, challenges and opportunities of audiovisual media.

The ​​Eyes & Ears New Talents (prev. Junior Highlights) give young talent a platform to showcase their innovative work. The industry meeting offers them the opportunity to get to know those who are always looking for young creative talent. At the same time, these young talents give long-time media professionals creative ideas for their own work.

Under the title Eyes & Ears Keynotes, both national, European and international industry players from TV, film, Internet, mobile, games, events, advertising, art and culture give insights into their projects and provide new perspectives. By addressing current media developments, trends and challenges, the speeches offer inspiration and points of reference for the participants' own work.

Rounding out the conference will be the Eyes & Ears Case Studies, where agencies and TV channels present their current projects.
