It’s official—the year’s biggest gathering of leaders in kids entertainment got a little bigger this year. Kidscreen Summit 2015 brought together just over 1,700 attendees last month for four days of intense business networking and professional learning. The final headcount for the Summit’s 16th edition represents a 5% bump over the previous year’s attendance levels, a particularly significant achievement, given that the annual gathering moved from New York to Miami this year.
An increase in delegates from Asia (up 20%) and Canada (up 13%) contributed meaningfully to the event’s overall growth, as did bigger or brand-new delegations from South American and Caribbean regions such as Costa Rica, Argentina, Colombia and Jamaica.
The dates for Kidscreen Summit 2016 are now set. The event will return to the InterContinental Miami from February 8 to 11. The contemporary luxury hotel is located on prime waterfront in downtown Miami. Registration will open in early July.
