MPAA Topper Chris Dodd to Skip CinemaCon Due to Scheduling Conflict

13 March 2017 5:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Motion Picture Association of America chairman-ceo Chris Dodd will not be going to CinemaCon this year due to a scheduling conflict.

It will mark the first time in quite a few years that the MPAA chief will not be giving his state-of-the-industry speech at the annual gathering of exhibitors and studios at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. John Fithian, president of the National Association of Theater Owners, remains on the schedule for March 28.

An MPAA spokesman confirmed Monday that Dodd — Hollywood’s chief lobbyist — would not appear but did not elaborate on the nature of the scheduling conflict. Dodd, who served five terms as a Democratic U.S. Senator from Connecticut, came on board to run the MPAA as the successor to Dan Glickman, who had served from 2004 to 2010. Glickman succeeded the late Jack Valenti, whose flamboyant speechmaking was a highlight of the industry confab, formerly called ShoWest.
