The first annual RightsTech Summit, held in 2016, drew 100 senior senior executives from the music, film, television, publishing, visual arts, and technology industries for a first of its kind, cross-media gathering focused on technology innovation in media rights management across all media industry sectors.

NYME’s conferences bring together over 1,000 senior digital, games, music, television, advertising and video leaders, brands, investors and start-ups, providing a great opportunity for networking, deal-making and partnership building. Unlike larger trade shows, where it’s easy to get lost in the crowd, NYME provides the ideal venue to make important announcements and standout among the influential in the industry. The RightsTech Project will host a hands-on workshops where rights-tech developers can showcase their latest innovations in the media capital of the world.
