Since the last edition of Weekend Media Festival, we have witnessed significant changes in the regional media market. Among numerous mergers and acquisitions as well as new intense media group collaborations, a set of acquisitions by the American KKR fund tends to stand out. KKR´s activities have changed the regional TV scene in depth and they have also had significant consequences on other media, the telecom market, independent production, cable operators and even politics. With regional KKR activities we see many interesting moves which are a part of this year´s reassortment. Weekend Media Festival will host regional key players who will explain and elaborate just what is happening with the media scene reassortment and also what that means for consumers and the market´s further development.
