By 2014, the UK entertainment and media business will be worth £56 billion*. We're well positioned in Scotland to maximise on this opportunity due to the emerging ecology between the creative and digital sectors. Scotland's best digital companies are beginning to collaborate and innovate with the unique talent, ideas and imaginative vision produced by the Scottish creative industries. Interactive Scotland in partnership with the Scottish Centre for Enabling Technology and AmbITion Scotland want to grow this nascent ecology to strengthen Scotland's economic future. We have created Digital 2011 to extend the connections and opportunities in Scotland's digital and creative sectors. Digital 2011 is first of the inaugural national gatherings of the digital and creative sectors. Digital 2011's focus is "Monetising Content" - workshops, keynotes, collaboration brokering, and networking - a conference on 30/31st March at Glasgow's SECC for Scottish SMEs, micro-organisations and individuals from across the digital and creative industries. *PricewaterhouseCoopers' Global Entertainment & Media Outlook 2010 - 2014

Conference Outline:Day 1 will commence with a full seminar bringing together some of the world’s leading professionals from across the digital and creative industries. Each speaker brings with them a wealth of knowledge and experience from the industry and will provide a comprehensive insight into “Monetising Content” across key themes including self-publishing, merchandising, building profitable relationships and exploiting innovative funding models. With top speakers such as Nicholas Lovell of Games Brief and Tim Collins of DC Thomson, this conference will provide you with the knowledge and insight to help you understand the opportunities available to monetise your content!

The afternoon of day 1 will consist of a series of workshops, masterclasses and industry panel debates looking at the key themes behind monetising content. These will cover a range of topics including a self-publishing masterclass, IP protection & merchandising law, developing an online audience and taking a close look at the range of online distribution networks.
After a day of listening and learning, join your peers in the evening for a hot buffet dinner and drinks. Delegates will have the opportunity to attend the Digital Content Showcase, an exciting exhibition of Scotland’s innovative creative and digital media talent and network with individuals from across the industry.
