The CTN animation eXpo Nov 16-18, 2012 Burbank Convention Center 800 604 2238 | 818 827-7138
The only event of its kind presents a unique opportunity that brings together the top professionals from both the traditional and digital worlds of animation. Hosted by the Creative Talent Network, this fouth year event has captured both the industry and local community’s attention as a resource for education, employment, business opportunities and most of all FUN! While the Expo has a very broad appeal, it is focused specifically on ‘THE TALENT” from the animation and surrounding communities. In an intimate setting at the Burbank Marriott Hotel and Convention Center thousands of attendees meet the faces behind the fantasy from yesterday, today and tomorrow over the course of 3 days. The event presenters include contributors from some of the highest grossing animated films of all time and are targeted to empower professionals, educate students and entertain the general public. Of particular interest to attendees are the Live Demonstrations, Networking Receptions, Master Workshops, Panel Discussions, Business Symposiums, Recruiting and the Professional Exhibits offered throughout the Expo as well as the signature One-On-One Personal Consultations with creative professionals from top studios and educational institutions both local and international all happening during the first city wide proclamation of “Animation Week” just for this event. With a demographic that includes both students and professionals it is our pleasure to work closely with each of our sponsors to ensure that every agreement is tailored to address your specific marketing objectives. Together we can make this event a memorable and successful one that will bring the community together as well as raise awareness for the animation medium each and every year. “….AMAZING … ONE OF A KIND … BETTER THAN EVER … SO NEEDED IN OUR INDUSTRY..” The CTN animation eXpo for the third year in a row is a smash success and with your continued dedication to “the talent” we are clearly here to stay! I am proud to report that we had a lot of new people join us this year from Egypt, Brazil, France, Japan, Spain, Germany and I say thank you to “everyone” for crossing over so many time zones and studio boundaries to participate in a show produced by artists and for artists that remains true to our simple motto of putting “the talent center stage”.
