In a year in which the UK will start to forge its own new wider relationships, the convention will explore how the television industry can make the most of this and other opportunities at home and abroad; in particular creating great content, growing the right skills and fielding the right people for the job. Global leaders will also discuss how policymakers can best enable the industry to succeed.
The biennial event, which takes place in Cambridge from 13-15 September, is this year entitled “A World of Opportunity”.
James Murdoch, Chief Executive Officer of 21st Century Fox, will deliver a keynote address.
