Plans for the Chamber’s 2017 State of the Entertainment Industry Conference are well under way with committee co-chairs Susanne Ault of Variety and Kristin Cavanaugh of Sony Pictures at the helm. This year’s conference will take place on Thursday, November 30th at the Loews Hotel Hollywood and will include exclusive conversations with top level industry leaders.

Past honorees have included Ted Sarandos, Roy Price, Vin Di Bona, Michael Chiklis, Shawn Ryan, and Anthony E. Zuiker.
The half-day conference will start with networking at 8:30 a.m. followed by a packed program through 1:30 p.m. Early Bird Special rate through Friday, November 17th is $129. Admission thereafter is $159. Reserve at www.hollywoodchamber.net/events.
