transmitBC // SEPTEMBER 19-21, 2012 (VANCOUVER, BC)

This fall, transmitBC will invite leaders in the TV, film, gaming, digital media, music and other creative sectors to become one of the 100 stakeholders that will define the BC Story for the province’s screen-based entertainment industries. 

transmitBC’s intense two-day workshop (September 20 - 21) aims to develop a cohesive story with a defined value proposition that illustrates how being a part of BC’s screen-based cluster makes companies unique and attractive in the face of domestic and global markets.

// Facilitation through collaboration and co-creation

transmitBC will apply innovative practices co-designed by transmitNOW and The Value Web. Their facilitation approach is recognized for having the ability to align and synthesize multiple stakeholder perspectives to achieve a common objective. Participants will undergo a series of activities to establish the common BC story, including ‘B2B Sessions’ where the story will be applied across several different industry contexts.
