Industry Vet Scott Rose to Keynote ITS Localisation

Scott Rose, the former CTO of Iyuno-SDI and SDI Media, has been announced as the opening keynote presenter for the 28 February Innovation and Transformation Summit (ITS): Localisation event in London.

The longtime industry veteran’s presentation — “Year 5 of the 3 Year Plan” — looks back to the debut of ITS Localisation’s predecessor, theContent Workflow Management Forum in 2018, where key industry trends were identified and bold predictions were made … partly by Rose himself, in the presentation “Connecting the Supply Chain.”

At ITS Localisation, Rose will revisit his presentation and explore how things have played out. What did the industry hit? What did it miss? What were the big surprises? And finally, what can we expect tomorrow?

Rose has more than 30-plus years of experience delivering localization technology and workflow solutions to the global media and entertainment industry, and is currently the
executive advisor for Los Angeles-based Media Globalization Consultancy.

Prior to Rose’s keynote, attendees of ITS Localisation will hear from the chairs of MESA’s Content Localisation Council, who will provide their thoughts on how the industry will shape up in 2023.

They’ll discuss how the industry continues to navigate what is an exceptionally busy period, how to retain and encourage new talent in both dubbing and subtitling, which languages will be most sought after over the next few years, and the role will technology play in driving efficiencies. Carlo Decianti, head of sales for Plint, Jan-Hendrik Hein, VP of media operations EMEA for A+E Networks, Nicky McBride, global business development and client relationships for Iyuno, and Justin Walton, head of global content operations for ITV Studios will be on stage.

MESA’s Innovation and Transformation Summit focuses exclusively on the localization business in media and entertainment and will feature subject matter experts, academics, content creators, and their service provider partners for conference sessions discussing the latest trends in software, hardware, products, and people that drive global content workflows and distribution mechanisms.

The event will be held at the Royal Garden Hotel, 2-24 Kensington High Street, London W8 4PT, as well as online in the MESAVerse, MESA’s virtual work environment for its members and communities.
