Skechers Entertainment senior VP creative development Kristen Van Cott will lead the Case Study conference Creating a Family Brand held on 2 October. Van Cott says, “For a producer to be able to grab the attention of today‘s kid viewers, content needs to tell a good story, offer compelling graphics and be interactive. The programming at Mipcom is remarkably diverse, yet the most successful shows all share those qualities. This market is essential to Skechers Entertainment as we introduce our branded content to the world.”
