Turner At The Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain

This week (27/02/2017 – 02/03/2017) was the Mobile World Congress 2017 convention in Barcelona, Spain and Turner, the owner of Cartoon Network was also represented at the event. Prominent members of Cartoon Network management including Christina Miller (President of Cartoon Network and General Manager of Cartoon Network USA) and Giorgio Stock (President of Turner Europe, Middle East and Africa) were among the speakers at the event. In the media industry, mobile devices are becoming an increasingly important medium to distribute content, including television shows and mobile games and apps, meanwhile, television is becoming less important as a source of entertainment or news. Turner’s parent company – Time Warner is currently in the process of being acquired by AT&T, one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies, it is no doubt that mobile content distribution will play an increasingly important role in Turner’s future strategy, not only to retain existing audiences but also to expand to new audiences as well.

At Mobile World Congress 2017, Turner revealed some interesting statistics, mobile app downloads relating to Turner’s kids brands (which includes Cartoon Network and Boomerang) have increased by 83% within one year. Christina Miller talked about creating role models in cartoons to get girls interested in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). Cartoon Network USA currently works with the Scratch Foundation to encourage school kids to get creative by coding their own stories using their favourite cartoon characters.

Giorgio Stock explains that Turner’s brands are fan-orientated. Turner’s brands are supported by its fans on major social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
