Over 100 Industry Leaders Gather at Second Nordic Digital Entertainment Tradeshow


Following the success of the first stop in Paris, The DEG Roadshow and Nordic Digital Entertainment Tradeshow welcomed over 100 guests from 30 companies celebrating Home Entertainment with fresh insights and discussions.

The event offered fresh local and international market data, highlighted consumer behaviour trends, and provided expert analysis. It showcased innovations that both addressed and harnessed opportunities. Additionally, we hosted retail panels and Q&A sessions with leading industry players and provided exclusive sneak peeks of upcoming content, along with presentations from our sponsors PlayPilot and Nordisk Film & TV Fond.

As revealed, this is a category in continued growth with multiple opportunities. International and local data and insights were provided by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, while local consumer behaviour trends came from local distributor Nordisk Film Distribution. Engaging panels discussed trends across all in-home channels with a collaborative retail panel including Altibox, Prime Video, TV2, SF Anytime & Viaplay.

Jesper Dahlgaard, Chair, Digital Entertainment Group Nordics said: “We were thrilled to host the second-ever Nordic Digital Entertainment Tradeshow, where over 100 participants from 30 prestigious companies gathered to forge the future of Home Entertainment. This event was a treasure trove of new insights, showcasing local and international market data, consumer behaviour trends, and expert analyses. Engaging with digital retailers, studio colleagues, and agencies in a day brimming with insights, market statistics, content previews, and discussions about our future growth ambitions was a pleasure. We thank Amy Jo Smith and Jeremy Enos for travelling from the US to share their perspectives on the market. We eagerly anticipate next year’s event and hope it will be just as successful.”

Amy Jo Smith, President and CEO at DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group said: “It was so promising to see such a large crowd gather for the DEG Roadshow stop in the Nordics. There was much discussion surrounding consumer interest in buying and renting filmed entertainment, as well as the burgeoning streaming market.

Liz Bales, Chief Executive at DEGI: The Digital Entertainment Group International added: “We are excited to host the DEGN’s Annual Digital Entertainment Trade Show in Stockholm, alongside our colleagues from the DEG and DEGI. It was an action packed day, with insights and inspiration elevating the value and contribution of Transactional Home Entertainment, in complement with the many services and channels operated by our members and partners. Once again, we welcomed Amy Jo and Jeremy and very much appreciated their contributions, crystallising the global, upward trajectory for Home Entertainment. The personal highlight is to have enjoyed the company and community of all the colleagues who joined us, it is their passion and creativity which makes the Nordics such a vibrant and successful territory and such a delight to support.”
