Senior Vice-President of Content at Twitch, the leading service and community for multiplayer entertainment, will keynote at MIPTV 2019, Wednesday 10 April.
The leading international market for content development and distribution, MIPTV takes place in Cannes, France, from 8-11 April 2019.
In his role as SVP of Content, Aragon leads all of Twitch's global broadcaster partnerships, esports, Twitch Studios, content development, and content marketing. Aragon also oversees the acquisition of TV shows and movies that have aired on Twitch like “Pokémon” and “Doctor Who”.
At MIPTV, he will provide insight on interactive entertainment’s appeal to younger audiences from gaming to non-gaming content, the power of interactive live viewing formats to maximize audience engagement and create new experiences around both old and new programs, and his vision for the global entertainment industry.
Aragon previously worked at Ellation, parent company of Crunchyroll, where he served as General Manager and managed the launch of VRV. Prior to Ellation, he spent eight years with PlayStation Network as VP and General Manager overseeing digital video, music, and original content services across Sony’s mobile, desktop, living room, and game consoles in over 30 countries.
The MIPTV conference theme this year is “PUSHING BOUNDARIES”, which will explore how, in the era of peak TV, powerful stories and unique voices are fuelling global creative ambitions and connecting international audiences with an infinite choice of quality content.
The rich conference programme at MIPTV includes a keynote from Ilene Chaiken, the creative force behind the hit series “The Handmaid’s Tale”, “Empire” and “The L Word”; Anders Jensen, President and CEO of Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) in conversation with Rola Bauer, Managing Director, STUDIOCANAL TV; a keynote from David Lynn, President and CEO of Viacom International Media Networks, followed by a conversation with Rebecca Glashow and Shelley Zimmerman, Co-Heads of Awesomeness, and actress Peyton List (“Happy Together”); and an impressive line-up of leading French TV executives due to speak as part of the France Country of Honour showcase..
