The new media are rapidly expanding and the traditional media are undergoing a concurrent transformation. Predicting the pathways for these two forms of communication is vital for continued growth and stability in the industry and inter-communication. This symposium hosts CEOs from world-class new media operations in China, and leading scholars and top managers from major media organizations in Hong Kong. They will engage with each other on the development of new and traditional media and what the future may hold. Their discussion will focus on four key themes:

1. Media convergence in an omni-media age;
2. Digital transformation of traditional media;
3. Social networks; and
4. Development of network video
