There’s no doubt that the global events of the past two years have accelerated the digital transformation for companies in the space, and it won’t be letting up. Businesses are rethinking how they engage with audiences and fans in digital-first, frictionless and personalised ways that will drive engagement, conversion, and much-valued retention. From accelerated investments in content and programming to retain streaming audiences, to audience identity strategies to drive consumption and monetisation, to more bite-sized creator economy and youth-geared short form content, there is a lot of effort going into next-gen experiences and data strategies.
