Do You Love Movies, TV, or Music?

A big event is coming to Utah for people who love music, movies, and TV. The Lightspark Media Summit is a rare public convention with high profile musicians, actors, and industry leaders. Jared Ruga, the Vice President of Film and Television of Sentry Financial. Lightspark will be held all day on Friday, March 3rd, 2017 at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah.

"Professional summits like this are pretty rare in Salt Lake. They happen all the time in LA and New York, but we're not known as the epicenter of the media industry. Which is too bad, because we've got a lot of talent here-with Sundance's support, the independent film community is thriving. We want to build on that momentum, but we need people to show up and come together to collaborate," explained Jared. 

The event lasts all day, but you can choose to only go to the events that interest you. Lightspark is great for business, but it's not all business--there's even a mini-concert by the up-and-coming band The Federal Empire. Organizers say the goal of the event is networking and learning. 
"We want to get lawyers, businesspeople, creative professionals, and students all in the same room at the same time so we can make connections that otherwise wouldn't happen. The creative arts are so collaborative that nothing can happen without a strong team. We hope some folks will meet their teammates that day," shared Jared.
