The first speakers have been announced for the biennial RTS London Convention 2022, which will take place on Tuesday, 27th September 2022 at King’s Place, London.

Warner Bros. Discovery is the Principal Sponsor for the RTS London Convention 2022 with Priya Dogra who serves as the company’s President & Managing Director for EMEA (ex. Poland), chairing this year’s convention, titled The Fight for Attention.

Priya Dogra said: “With more choice than ever before of what to watch and how to watch it, the fight for consumer attention between broadcasters, streamers and other types of entertainment is changing the way we create, compete, and collaborate. Our collective response to this shifting landscape will have a profound impact on the shape of our industry, the stories we tell and the rewards for success over the years to come. This year’s RTS London Convention, which Warner Bros. Discovery is honoured to chair in our first year as a new company, will bring together industry leaders from the UK and around the world to examine the implications for consumers, content creators, content distributors, investors, policymakers, and regulators.” 

The announced industry leaders who will speak at the one-day event include: Tim Davie, Director-General, BBC; Alex Mahon, CEO, Channel 4; Carolyn McCall, CEO, ITV and Stephen van Rooyen, Executive Vice President & CEO, UK & Europe, Sky. Further high-profile speakers will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Theresa Wise, CEO of the Royal Television Society said: “With our London convention for 2020 pivoting to a successful digital event, it’s been four years since we physically gathered together in London to explore the seismic shifts and emerging trends in the UK’s television landscape, and hear from industry leaders from across the globe. We’re thrilled to have Priya Dogra as chair and the Warner Bros. Discovery team as principal sponsor for the convention this year, and look forward to working together as we gather again for what is set to be an insightful and agenda setting programme.”
