Television stands at a crossroads. Connected TV promises to change the face of the industry as it combines traditional content with audience connectivity and integrated social media. Will the dominant species in the television landscape survive this revolution, or will they be eradicated from the television universe – replaced by a brand new set of brand players who are more agile, more versatile and more connected?

When Worlds Collide: Beyond the Digital Looking Glass

Sponsored by BBC Worldwide
 
28 September 2012
Barbican, London
 
Television stands at a crossroads. Connected TV promises to change the face of the industry as it combines traditional content with audience connectivity and integrated social media. Apps, games, eCRM – do we know as much about their potential as our staff and interns? 
 
Will the dominant species in the television landscape survive this revolution, or will they be eradicated from the television universe – replaced by a brand new set of brand players who are more agile, more versatile and more connected?
 
These are the questions we’ll be asking at this year’s Digital World Conference. Disney’s Anne Sweeney and NBC’s Gary Zenkel will be joining many of the UK’s digital world leaders to provide some of the answers. 
 
We’ll be telling you more about future digital viewing habits, apps and how to make a successful product and what we might learn from gaming. In addition to panel sessions, we’ll have masterclasses, fireside chats and keynotes from the great of the good both within and without our industry. You’ll be educated, amazed and pushed beyond your knowledge zone.
