By November 15, 2017 No Comments

We are writing to you to inform you of The Premier Entertainment Talent Care Conference, a groundbreaking event that will shine a spotlight on the critical issue of talent care in the entertainment industry, will take place at the private members club in London on the Thursday 15th March 2018, organisers confirmed today.

Hosted by The Premier Entertainment Network, the team behind the renowned and established sports-focused Player Care Conference, the Talent Care Conference will bring together key figures from the entertainment sector who help to support the careers of leading performers, artists, musicians, presenters and personalities.

In keeping with the exclusive nature of the organisers’ events, invitations for the one-day conference will only be extended to those who work specifically within the talent care sector, with delegates able to attend for free simply by registering their interest and confirming their attendance.

With a capped capacity of 100 attendees ensuring an intimate atmosphere, agents, label managers, publicists, promoters, entourage members and entertainment industry executives will meet to discuss all aspects of talent care and share insights and best-practice strategies in a relaxed setting.

In the wake of the recent Harvey Weinstein scandal, the topic of exploitation in the entertainment industry will be one of a series of vital issues to be tackled during a packed agenda of conference panel sessions.

Other topics include financial management, tackling addictions, mental health, the evolution of talent scouting and artistic development, travel and tour management, security, preparing talent for a life after the limelight, image rights and social media management.

“Having established the Player Care Conference as an industry-leading gathering, it is natural for us to fill this void in the entertainment sector in an effort to educate and encourage a healthy exchange of ideas,” says Spencer Hidge, co-founder of The Entertainment Network.

“Recent events in Hollywood have highlighted just one of the welfare problems that has been apparently common knowledge behind closed doors for years, but has been swept under the carpet in the glare of the public spotlight until very recently.
“Our conference will lift the lid on all topics associated with talent welfare and we are confident that those who attend the conference will gain vital insights into how to support the lives and careers of those in the public eye.”

Those wishing to register their interest in attending the conference are invited to email enquiries@entertainmentnetwork.co.uk or by calling 0208 419 1100 for further information.
