Celebrate your Summit success at our CLOSING COCKTAIL PARTY!

That’s right, people! We will be kicking off AND wrapping up the event with some fun poolside networking. So make sure you stick around to join us for a final round of mojitos on Thursday, February 15 from 2:00pm to 3:00pm (Poolside Terrace, fifth floor).

Getting your bearings

By now, you're probably in the thick of scheduling Kidscreen Summit meetings, so we've updated our venue maps to help you figure out where to connect with other delegates. Our Delegate Lounge—which is Meeting Central at the event—will be located on the second level in the Grand Ballroom.

Generously sponsored by our friends at Go-N International, we will once again have three 10-foot-tall Meeting Points set up in and around the Lounge area to help you find each other more easily. They will look like the sample image here, with each one sporting an image from a different show, and here’s where they will be located:

Meeting Point A    Delegate Lounge by the Coffee Station
Meeting Point B    Atrium by the Info Booth
Meeting Point C    Between Biscayne and Chopin Ballrooms

Buffet breakfast and lunch will be served all four days of the event in the second-level Chopin and Biscayne Ballrooms, with additional lunch service and seating available in the lobby-level Olé restaurant. Our conference sessions are all taking place in various rooms on the lobby level. And just inside the hotel’s main entrance, the open-concept Lobby Lounge and Toro Toro Bar are great spots to unwind over drinks, or meet up with a dinner date.

We’ve got some great keynotes lined up!

Judging from how hopping our Delegate Lounge always is, we know that business meetings are a primary focus at the event for most of you. But make sure you carve out a little time in your Summit schedule for inspiration and information—starting with these fascinating keynote sessions…

Reframing Empathy: Lessons From Cesar Millan

Sit and stay as world-renowned dog behaviorist Cesar Millan brings his expertise in reading non-verbal cues to the Kidscreen stage. With practical applications from his upcoming animated series and more than 25 years as a canine behaviorist (that’s nearly two centuries in dog years!), Cesar and his dachshund/cocker mix Sophia are joined by media and education executive Alice Cahn for a fireside chat exploring the impact our furry friends can have in teaching kids social emotional learning, empathy, cooperation and tolerance.

Alice Cahn

Gen Alpha, Engaged

Today's kids have been born into a world of iPhones, YouTube and Instagram. They aren't just digital-first: They're mobile, global, visual and social natives, and acclaimed social researcher Ashley Fell literally wrote the book on them. In this keynote, Ashley will deliver a snapshot of how kids and teens live today, how they'll shape tomorrow's media, and how producers and broadcasters can cut through the noise to capture their attention in this digitally disruptive world.
