Join ZOO at EnTech Fest 2023

Join ZOO as we attend the DEG’s annual reception, exhibition and expanded conference program – EnTech Fest 2023. The event brings together content distribution and marketing executives, platform partners, technology enablers and innovators across the digital entertainment ecosystem.

The digital entertainment industry trade show and networking event, attended by DEG studio and platform members and non-members, focuses on innovation in post-theatrical content display and distribution.

Taking place at the Skirball Cultural Center, North Sepulveda Boulevard, Los Angeles, the one-day conference features panels and presentations covering:

“The DEG team listened very carefully to our first-year attendees and exhibitors and is using their feedback to make EnTech even better in 2023. This includes the creation of additional relevant conference programming and more opportunities for networking and for our participants to work together in-person at the event. We know this face time has become even more valuable to potential attendees in this era of remote work.”
