Los Angeles (May 27, 2010) – The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced today that AT&T* will be the exclusive presenting sponsor for the second annual Produced By Conference (PBC), which will be held June 4-6, 2010 at 20th Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles.

"We are pleased to have AT&T as the presenting sponsor for the second annual Produced By Conference,” said Gale Anne Hurd and Rachel Klein, PBC event co-chairs. "Given the vital role mobile and wireless technology now serves within the entertainment industry, AT&T’s involvement couldn’t be more relevant, especially with many sessions at the conference being devoted to new technologies.”

In addition to being the exclusive presenting sponsor, AT&T will also spearhead the mobile entertainment track at the conference, which will include two seminars and the AT&T Speakers Lounge, which will serve as a gathering hub for conference speakers. AT&T will also offer the AT&T Showcase on Stage 8 that will provide an interactive look at the future of media and new technologies. The area will offer complimentary Wi-Fi to attendees as well.

"The ‘Produced By Conference’ is known for delivering the same attributes that are at the core of the AT&T brand and our mission– discovery, learning, and creative inspiration,” said Chris Schembri, vice president, AT&T Media Services. "We are excited to serve as the presenting sponsor of this event and look forward to showcasing AT&T mobility, broadband, voice and video services to the entertainment and media communities.”

Reaching across film, television and new media industries, PBC is a rare educational forum involving acclaimed producers, including countless Academy Award®-winning filmmakers and Emmy® winners, as well as the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.
