The 2016 festival is nearly double the size of the previous two years, with 34 different events from screenings and live podcast tapings to interviews with showrunners (like Shonda Rhimes and David Chase) and actors (including the casts of Mr. Robot and Better Call Saul).

"This was the first year that we've actually gone out there with a dedicated sponsor effort," said publisher Larry Burstein, who last year hired the company's first-ever director of sponsorship sales, Daniel Jasper, to help oversee the events business. "Because there's a lot about the festival that's new... Continue reading at 'AdWeek'
