Entertainment and Media

Growth through diversity: talent, geography and business models

Understanding where consumers and advertisers are spending their money in the entertainment and media industry can help inform many important business decisions. But being able to find comparable data, for multiple entertainment and media segments and countries and from a single source, can be a challenge.
