OMDC's Research Showcase 2013 took place on April 9th at the Bram and Bluma Appel salon at the Toronto Reference Library. Seventy-five Researchers, guests from Ontario's cultural media industries and government partners heard brief presentations on cultural media industries research and enjoyed some cross-sector networking.

Presenters took guests through a quick tour of recently launched and soon-to-be released research from the Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA), the Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC), MusicOntario, Magazines Canada, and an OMDC-commissioned study of Ontario’s book publishing industry.
