In addition, transmission: GLOBAL SUMMIT 2011 will be an opportunity for delegates to connect with key decision makers from select global markets.
"For the first time, participants can set their agenda for developing business in territories where new technology and out-of the-box businesses are rapidly changing the economic model of creative content," says Tyl van Toorn, Co-founder and Executive Producer.

This year's conference will be hosted by Nora Young (Host & Creator of "Spark", CBC Radio One).
"The caliber of attendees for this year is simply incredible," remarks Jonas Woost, Director of Community Development. "The roundtables are definitely going to be a highlight during the conference. Participants understand that the roundtables provide an excellent opportunity to connect with every individual in the room."
"We have some incredible speakers and some groundbreaking showcases, all of which are supported by our roundtable discussions," says van Toorn. "We are regularly complimented for the quality of the delegates and the thought that goes into who-sits-with-who. transmission is proud to step up their roundtable game in 2011 by partnering with the globally recognized facilitation team, The Value Web."
