Paramount Pictures International president Andrew Cripps and Warner Bros International Cinemas president Millard L Ochs will deliver keynote addresses at CinemaCon’s International Day.

The official convention of The National Association Of Theatre Owners (NATO) replaces the Motion Picture Association Of America’s ShoWest conflagration although the format is not expected to differ significantly.

CinemaCon will take place over March 28-31 2011 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. “As our industry continues to evolve around the world it is imperative that cinema owners and operators keep up to date with the ongoing changes within the industry,” CinemaCon managing director Mitch Neuhauser said.

“Both Millard L Ochs and Andrew Cripps will be able to provide valuable insight to the state of the industry in regards to international exhibition and the current state of international distribution.”
