WHY: Media and communications companies hold a unique role in society and the economy, whether as a means of entertainment or as a tool to build consumer brands. Innovation and evolution in the sector have blurred the traditional boundaries between media and communications, leading to increased industry consolidation. As consumers change the way they get news, watch television or communicate with friends and family, this year's conference will provide investors and media with essential information on trends in this critical sector.
Aryeh Bourkoff, Vice Chairman of Technology, Media & Telecom banking at UBS said, "The companies scheduled to present at the UBS Global Media and Communications Conference will be discussing how their businesses are performing in this turbulent economic period. The advertising forecast for 2009, which will be released at the conference, will surely be closely monitored."
