As we have already reached the second half of this year, we would like to
invite your interest in our up-coming event programme for Autumn and Winter
2002. In particular I would like to draw your attention to our most imminent
events taking place in August:

Germany, Belgium and Scandinavia the Showrunner Exchange: Drama Series (Los
Angeles, 25-30 August) allows the participant to spend the week shadowing

Prior to the UK's leading industry event, the Edinburgh Television Festival,
the European Drama Convention (Loch Lomond, 21-23 August) offers
international TV Drama professionals to address common interests and the
increasing necessity for collaboration post the S&L withdrawal in the UK.
