World Congress of Science and Factual Producers

Where smart content matters

For 25 years, the Congress has been a must-attend gathering for producers, broadcasters and distributors working in science, history and non-fiction media. As we celebrate our anniversary, we are looking ahead to the innovations changing the core of our industry and the growing importance of communicating knowledge and truth.

This year's three-day event in San Francisco, CA, will feature keynotes by industry leaders, a new Innovation Expo, and tailored networking events. We will welcome broadcast and production leaders, along with content creators from a wide range of tech and innovation industries.


NEW Innovation Expo

Taking place alongside the traditional Congress sessions and market events, the Expo will feature interactive exhibits, live demos and tech-focused displays. Discover what's next for content creation, from virtual and augmented reality to online platforms to gaming and beyond.

Exhibitors will connect with international leaders in broadcasting, production and digital media, with numerous opportunities to build brand awareness and foster new business across a range of strategically aligned sectors.
