International media and tech conference, X Media Lab, has announced the line-up of speakers and mentors for its XML Bath event taking place in March. The conference takes place on the 16th March and is followed by a two-day Lab for start-ups (to take place at Peter Gabriel’s extremely cool Real World Studios) where the keynote speakers from the conference turn into mentors. XML Bath precedes Bath’s first ever Digital Festival that will take place from 19th-26th March.
The speakers and mentors are flying into Bath from all around the world (Los Angeles, New York, Beijing, Toronto and Bangalore) and include Jeff Gomez (CEO, Starlight Runner Entertainment), Jane Hu (Head of Programming Strategy, YouTube Next Lab), Rosie Allimonos (Multiplatform Commissioner, BBC Drama), Esther Lim (CEO, The Estuary), Poonacha Machaiah (CEO Shekhar Kapiur Digital Media), Andy Mok (MD Red Pagoda and Organiser of Startup Weekend Beijing) and Gerry Gouy (Senior Director at MTV Networks).
