Asian Professional Exchange (APEX) Presents

L.A. Networking Mixer:
Exploring the Future of Asian American Media

With support from our Community Sponsor, CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment, Inc.), our aptly themed event will feature a panel discussion on the present and future of Asian American media.

The panel will discuss issues related to the explosion of "new" media (facebook, twitter, youtube, blogs etc.) at a time when "traditional" media (television, magazines, books) is facing new challenges. Panelists will address why so many Asian American media efforts have failed to gain traction, and whether there is a place for Asian American media in the new environment.

In addition to the discussion panel, the event will provide an opportunity to network and mingle, guests will enjoy drink specials throughout the night.
