The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced today that the 2012 Produced By Conference (PBC) will be held June 8-10, 2012 on the Sony Pictures Studio lot in Culver City, CA. The Guild also announced an important new presenting sponsor, the International CES, produced by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) which will support PBC events, as well as provide significant new programming opportunities at the 2012 event.
Reaching across film, television, and new media industries, the Produced By Conference is an educational forum that involves acclaimed producers, including Academy Award-winning filmmakers and Emmy Award winners, as well as the next generation of creative entrepreneurs. The 2012 PBC will be held independent of the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) Locations Trade Show. It was mutually agreed upon to hold separate events next year although individual international film commissions may still participate in PBC.
All profits from the Produced By Conference are reinvested into Producer Guild member services, including education, industry promotion, production standards development, market research and legislative advocacy.

In January 2011, CES unveiled its “Entertainment Matters” program, designed to highlight the content-related exhibits, conferences sessions and events, and to provide entertainment industry professionals a more curated CES experience. The Entertainment Matters program is returning for the 2012 CES.
