The Digital Hollywood Conference 2009 held in the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica is certainly the premier event of everything related with the Internet and new media technology. Produced by Victor Harwood since 1990, Digital Hollywood has continuously served as an open forum and a beacon for the digital industry, including film, video, music, and all facets of Internet and telecommunications.

Since the early days of its inception to today, Digital Hollywood has counted with a massive list of top speakers, moderators and guests, including the original mavericks that created the digital revolution to today's innovative CEOs, leading executives, movie and TV moguls, digital evangelists and many movers and shakers that drive this fast evolving industry.
