About the Produced By Conference

After six years of sell-out, capacity crowds in Los Angeles, the Producers Guild of America joined with hosts HBO and Time Warner to bring the Produced By Conference to New York. This one-day event showcased the best of the vibrant and diverse New York creative community working in film, television, and new media.

The Produced By Conference is the signature event where the most influential decision-makers in the entertainment industry gather as peers to educate, illuminate, and share new technological and economic innovations. This event is truly for producers, by producers.

Attendees have the opportunity to network with Oscar-winning filmmakers, Emmy-winning showrunners, and the next generation of creative entrepreneurs during a full day of panel discussions, group mentoring sessions, and an evening cocktail reception.

Produced By is held through the Producers Guild of America’s charitable entity, the PGA Foundation, as it epitomizes the Foundation’s core mission to educate those who work in the producing profession.
