RTS Midlands welcomed commissioners from the BBC, Sky, Channel 5 and ITV to Birmingham’s Colmore Club in September to network with RTS members and independent television companies from the region.
The commissioners day offered informal chats, pitching sessions and networking. “We wanted an informal feel to the day as we wanted to encourage honest and open discussions between the indies and the commissioners,” said RTS Midlands Chair Caren Davies.
She added: “It meant that the indies could see numerous people in one day instead of having to go back and forth to London, which can be quite costly and time-consuming for some of the smaller companies.”
RTS Midlands is planning to host more of these types of events in the future.
