"The International Council Summit is crucial in providing a neutral platform to convene discussions at the highest level in times of transformation, disruption, and opportunity with leaders who have shaped the industry and its future," said Frank A.

The Paley International Council Summit 2016, themed Shaping the Global Marketplace, will convene chief executives, top leaders, and visionaries for an event filled with intimate and interactive panel discussions, presentations, and networking receptions. These sessions will address the global issues facing all companies—from enhancing trade, safeguarding national security, and cyber security and sustaining economic growth, as well as explore the opportunities and challenges specific to the media industry, including the change in news coverage, the prospects for consolidation, and the future of content.
"For twenty years the International Council Summit has brought together chief executive officers of the world's most prominent media companies, influencers, and innovators to drive conversations on our ever-changing media industry," said Maureen J. Reidy, President and CEO of The Paley Center for Media. "With the 21st International Council Summit, the Paley Center is honored to come to Mexico for the first time, for what promises to be very compelling and timely conversations on the issues shaping the global marketplace."
