Gwenael Flatres, Founder and CEO of UbiQ Events, stated, « The music industry has suffered greatly over the past decade due to the deployment of the internet and piracy but has finally found new economic models.

Television is about to undergo a detrimental shock with the arrival of connected TV, tablets and VOD. The video game industry is facing new challenges with digital distribution but is discovering new opportunities for growth through social networks as well as producers and distributors of TV content, music, books and magazines. Artists have become full-fledged media through their communities with millions of fans. Audiences are fragmenting and advertisers have to follow their audiences. Therefore media and advertising must reinvent their function around the notion of engagement and complementary channels in the digital sphere. UbiQ is here to accompany this movement. »
