More than 1,600 people attended the RTS Futures Virtual Careers Fair on the first two days of February – making it the most popular Futures event ever. 

The talent jamboree featured sessions covering the length and breadth of television – but all were aimed at new entrants to the industry or those in the early stages of their careers. 

An online CV clinic and advice area, staffed by leading industry professionals, was attended by 500-plus people, and interactive exhibitor booths allowed companies to talk to attendees via live chat and video.
