“Power to the Pixel proved itself this year to be one of the most important gatherings for anyone engrossed in the business of entertainment and communications. The depth and quality of ideas shared on and off stage struck me as exemplary. Liz and her team clearly went to great lengths to ensure the conference would inspire on intellectual and creative levels. No grandstanding here. Simply an outstanding conference expertly organized.”

“Storytelling is shifting at a rapid pace. Power to the Pixel 2012 provided an incredible showcase of how storytellers from various traditions and backgrounds are finding ways to rediscover our oldest form of communication, and how the traditional industry powerhouses are eager to find and engage audiences and content creators—everyone, under the same roof for three full days. The event was extremely well thought out, curated, and executed. Very much looking forward to Power to the Pixel 2013.”
