September 22-24, 2020

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to:

overview

2019 was the first year of THAT BIG TV CONFERENCE and it was a smash of a success with both sponsors & attendees.  Since last September, though, the world has changed in unimaginable ways. And Cynopsis is responding.
 
Instead of a Conference, we will be presenting BIG TV in 2020 as an Experience for the media world. We designed this digital event to provide you, our attendees, with what you have told us you need more than anything – the opportunity to be educated on the most critical trends and topics facing the media industry, and to connect with colleagues.
 
In short, this is no webinar. This will be a lively, inspiring space, comprising discussions and happenings that will alleviate pressure and refresh confidence so that we can all move ahead. Plus, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Feeding America.
 
Join us!
