Global media industry leaders including Bob Bakish, Tony Hall, Alex Mahon, Carolyn McCall and many others, are joining us for the RTS London Conference 2018

The biennial one-day conference will explore the accelerating pace of consolidation across global media sectors and how this drive for scale is impacting the commissioning and production landscape. Global leaders will gather to discuss the future evolution of television both in the UK and internationally. With giant technology companies pushing deeper into video and threatening a further wave of disruption, where does this leave the traditional media majors, the UK PSBs and production companies, both big and small?  How are issues around trust and competition being addressed by organisations and by regulators?  And what will be the outcomes for viewers?

This is the first time the RTS London Conference has been sponsored by Viacom, and it is co-chaired this year by David Lynn, President Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) and James Currell, President, VIMN, UK, Northern and Eastern Europe.

The registration fee for the Conference is £570 + VAT.
