The upcoming Children’s Advertising and Review Unit (CARU) conference in New York City will explore challenging issues facing companies that advertise to children. The focus will include mobile and online technologies, modifications to the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) revisions to the COPPA Rule.
Voltron, the 1980s robot-themed television show franchise, is making a comeback this year and is also making its first-ever panel presentation at Comic-Con International, held in San Diego. The presentation will be made in the Indigo Ballroom at the Bayfront Hilton Hotel on July 21 at 6 p.m.
The hour-long event will be moderated by Carrie Keagan, host of VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live. Joining Keagan will be Senior Vice President of Nicktoons Keith Dawkins as well as Voltron’s Jeremy Corray (supervising producer), Brandon Thomas (comic book writer), and many other artists, producers, and designers who are behind the Voltron world.
After the event, fans will have the opportunity to take a picture with a giant Voltron figure. Also, there will be an autograph signing with participating major talent and executives.
