Following a successful conference in Sydney, the focus now shifts back to the northern hemisphere where, later this month, the APEX TV Market takes place in a brand new venue – Dublin. Airlines and content service providers will be able to catch up on all the latest TV shows, movies, games and many other forms of media that will entertain passengers at 30,000 feet. So what should you expect from your trip to Dublin? Steve Harvey’s been to take a look at the Dublin Conference Centre and The Storehouse, venue for the networking event.
“Inflight entertainment is a major differentiating factor when selecting one airline over another” says Saurav Mukherjee, Manager of Inflight Entertainment at Oman Air. Although relatively small in comparison with other airlines in the region, Oman Air certainly punches above its weight when it comes to the inflight cabin experience with a huge range of entertainment and connectivity options. With a batch of brand new 737s arriving this year, the first of a fleet of 787s arriving in 2015 and a brand new airport terminal about to open, there’s much to talk about as Steve Harvey meets with Saurav Mukherjee in the PME Interview.
Since resigning as Editor-in-Chief of the APEX Media Platform, Mary Kirby has been keeping a low profile. But now, as she explains to Steve in this week’s PME Interview, she’s back, big time, with her most audacious project yet.
APEX arrived into Shanghai last November with a Regional Conference aimed at the rapidly expanding Chinese market. In January APEX co-hosted an educational session at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas concerning the in-flight use of consumer electronics. Looking ahead, APEX events are scheduled in the coming months for Sydney and Dublin. If you’re thinking seriously about attending an APEX event this year, and that includes the annual APEX EXPO in Anaheim, take a few minutes to watch the latest PME Interview as Steve Harvey talks to the Executive Director of APEX, Russ Lemieux.
This week on the PME Interview, we bring you something a little different. Paramount’s Mark Horton is our guest on what we hope will become a regular movie preview feature keeping you up to date with future movie releases from the major studios. Paramount has some interesting movies lined up for 2014, so take a look and enjoy.
