The Connected Creativity Forum

Here at Girls ‘n’ Gadgets we are always on the lookout for new technologies and gadgets and a brand new event from the GSMA and Reed MIDEM has just caught our eyes – The Connected Creativity Forum. It promises lots of lovely new gadgets and gizmos across entertainment, technology and mobile media – so new tech for our TVs, music/film players, games consoles and mobile devices – yey!

The event runs for four days in the very glamorous Cannes, France, during April (5th – 7th) at MIPTV. During the four day event, there will be the usual stands and speaker slots – but also networking, matchmaking sessions, a start-up competition, experimental labs, demos and showcases of the latest new tech to wet our appetites – exciting stuff.

Here is a short video to tell you more: Connected Creativity explained

The speaker’s list looks pretty promising to and it seems many of the top dogs in tech are going to be there, including Facebook, FremantleMedia and Ericsson’s CEO Hans Vestberg.

You can view the full programme here and we hope to be going along and will of course keep you updated on all the news and lovely gadgets we find at the show 🙂
