Hulu’s Randy Freer & Turner’s John Martin To Keynote CES 2018

Will tackle content creation by tech companies, and tech creation by content firms

CES 2018 attendees will have the opportunity to see Hulu CEO Randy Freer and Turner Chairman and CEO John Martin speak at the keynote panel, titled “Reimagining Television.”

Freer and Martin will discuss a surprising “switch of sides” in the tech space: how technology companies are moving into content creation, while content companies are expanding their mastery of technology.

The panel will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018, at Monte Carlo’s Park Theater in Las Vegas. This is a new venue for CES keynotes.

“In a world with infinite choices, Hulu and Turner are leading the way by developing strategic methods to engage consumers, advertisers and content creators,” said Karen Chupka, CES and corporate business strategy senior VP at the Consumer Technology Association, owner and producer of the show. “We are delighted to have Randy and John take the CES keynote stage together to discuss the future of content and how their companies are reimagining television.”

“At Turner, we are taking industry disruption head on by reimagining TV. We know our long-term success hinges on our ability to deliver great experiences and create dedicated fans not only through premium content, but by also being a data-driven, technologically innovative company,” said John Martin, Chairman and CEO, Turner. “That is why we are making strategic investments and partnerships across the board with companies like Hulu, which allows us to embrace new business models so that we can reach our fans wherever and whenever they consume our content. Taking the stage with Randy at CES 2018 provides an excellent opportunity to tell this story to an important and influential audience.”

CES 2018 will run Jan. 9-12, 2018.
