RTS Conferences

The biggest names in the media converge for the biggest event of the year.

Events in television don't get much bigger than the RTS Cambridge Convention and the RTS London Conference. Held on alternate years, each event brings together the senior leaders and CEOs from the global TV industry for discussion and debate, setting the agenda for the future media year. 

 

RTS Cambridge Convention

 

Every two years the most recognisable faces, influential names and powerful voices of television converge for three days of stimulating talks, chaired by one of the UK's main broadcasters. 

Past speakers at the RTS Cambridge Convention have included James Murdoch, CEO of 21st Century Fox, Sharon White, Chief Executive of Ofcom, David Abraham, formerly of Channel 4, Josh Sapan, President and CEO of AMC Networks, Nancy Dubuc, CEO of A+E Networks, and David Zaslav, President and CEO of Discovery Communications.

The programme of talks is broken up with dinners and entertaining speeches at the iconic Great Hall of Kings College Cambridge. 

Two-time Cambridge Convention producer John Whiston said, "You can get pretty much anyone in the world to talk [at the RTS Cambridge Convention]. That is a pretty incredible power and I don't think anyone else in the world has that power."

 

RTS London Conference

 

Taking place over one day in central London on alternate years, the RTS London Conference sees dozens of themed discussions and speeches from senior industry leaders and politicians. The event, held at Kings Place, has seen addresses from 21st Century Fox President Chase Carey, Discovery's JB Perrette, Netflix's Ted Sarandos, BBC Director General Tony Hall and Sky's Jeremy Darroch, among other senior decision makers.

In between lectures, panel discussions and Q&A sessions, attendees enjoy lunch and an enviable chance to mingle with some of the industry's most influential figures.
