Aspen Snowmass Hosts The Meeting 10

Celebration of Snow And Film Culture Includes Full-Day Conference

Aspen Hosted The Meeting 10 this past weekend, which has become an anticipated annual event for both the snow industry and general public. The schedule included the NEPSA Awards on opening night (a showcase for up-and-coming local video talent) that continually produces some excellent short-length work, nine full-length feature premieres (including productions from TGR and Matchstick Productions), and a fashion show and live music acts at The Belly Up.

The conference focus at The Meeting continued to grow this year and included an all-day session at The Limelight Hotel that featured three panel discussions, one speaker, and breakout work sessions (led by Group Y) that involved all attendees.

I was glad to take part as a moderator for two great panel discussions, one focused on the state of action and outdoor sports on broadcast television (which also touched on digital syndication opportunities), and another on the role that content creation now plays in brands’ marketing strategies.

I’ll be following up with more in-depth posts on both of those topics. Until then, here’s a brief summary and photo gallery from the weekend. Great to see some snow in the mountains already.
