THE NEW NORMAL: Kids Media behaviors that are here to stay.

The session will be run on ZOOM, 15th December, 12:00-13:00 CET. (registration closed)

hosted by: Viola Gabrielli (Head of Programme,  Kids Kino Industry) at New Horizons Association

speakers: Eric Huang, Children’s Media Consultant, UK, Pete Robinson, Chief Strategy Officer of Kids Know Best, UK

The COVID pandemic has affected the lives of people around the world. This talk explores the ways in which lockdowns and the ‘new normal’ have affected children and families: how they pass the time together and apart, how they consume media, and how children’s media companies worldwide are shifting their strategies to build and launch franchises for this captive audience. Join Pete Robinson (Chief Strategy Officer of Kids Know Best) and Eric Huang (children’s media consultant) as they discuss the children’s media industry and how the COVID crisis has changed and reinforced trends.
