ABS-CBN Head Of TFC Online Enrique Olives To Speak At Digital Hollywood Spring In LA And TV Of Tomorrow In SF








Hundreds of top executives in film, television, music, home video, cable, telecommunications and computer industries are expected to attend two of the most important conferences in media and entertainment in the U.S.: Digital Hollywood and The TV of Tomorrow (TVOT). ABS-CBN Head of TFC Online Enrique Olives will speak at both conferences this year.

On May 22-24, Digital Hollywood Spring, one of the annual conferences founded by Victor Harwood – a leading authority on the convergence of the entertainment and technology industries – will be held at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, California.

On May 24 at Herscher Hall of the center, Olives will be part of the panel discussion on “Indie TV-OTT and Streaming – The Gateway to the Hollywood of Content to Phones, Tablets, TV and PC”.

During the Digital Hollywood Spring conference, The Influencer Awards, which celebrates cultural influencers in an expanding digital universe, will be held on May 22.

Other topics to be discussed during the conference include: Immersive Hollywood: VR-AR-MR-XR; Internet TV: The Disruption; Hollywood and Space: Honoring the Greatest in Creativity – From Mars and the Moon to Exploring the Imagination; Finance Hollywood: Investment – Funding – Packaging; The Women’s Summit & Workshops – Content – Discussion – Recognition; The University Project: AR-VR Internet & Entertainment – Accelerating the Educational Process; and Hollywood Advertising: Brands – Agencies – Networks – Platforms, among others.

On June 13-14, the 12th annual TV of Tomorrow Show (TVOT) will take place at The Golden Gate Club in San Francisco’s famous Presidio National Park.

Olives will be among the panelists for the sessions which will be broadly organized into three tracks:

A Today Track will focus on the hard data that can be gleaned — and the lessons that can be learned — from the many deployments of advanced TV and video that are already in the field today.

A Tomorrow Track will provide attendees with the opportunity to explore how the various platforms, technologies, screens, standards, content genres and business models that make up today’s advanced-TV/video space are likely to evolve over the coming months and years, and to identify new platforms, new technologies, new forms of programming, new kinds of data, new monetization strategies, and other developments that are likely to impact the space in the future.

A Workshop/Master Class Track will provide attendees with a more intimate and hands-on environment in which to: 1) see and learn about promising new advanced-TV technologies, standards and business strategies; 2) get their questions and concerns answered by subject matter experts; and 3) gain practical skills for implementing new TV experiences.

TVOT claims to consistently attract a veritable “who’s who” of the interactive/advanced-TV, MVPD, OTT-TV, advertising, broadcasting/programming, data/measurement, streaming-infrastructure, consumer-electronics and social-video industries. The show — which is carefully designed to encourage networking and deal-making — has been widely praised for offering a uniquely inspiring, rewarding and enjoyable experience, unlike any other tradeshow or conference.

Moreover, over the past few years, TVOT has become the event of choice for established TV players to meet and network with the creative and business communities that have emerged on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Musical.ly, HQ and other social-video platforms to address the rapidly evolving viewing habits and programming preferences of Millennials and Gen Z.

Olives has 25 years of experience in business development and finance, having pioneered the launch of TFC Online in 2004 and the foray of ABS-CBN Global into launching its own Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) service in 2007. He served as Chief Financial Officer of SkyCable, the largest cable provider in the Philippines, from 1997-2000 and was Managing Director of ABS-CBN Japan from 2009 to 2013. Olives holds an MBA from Santa Clara University.
