RTS Cambridge Convention Review

The biennial RTS Cambridge Convention is where the big cheeses of the tv industry go to gnaw over the big issues facing it. This year the theme is 'Content, Consumers and Everything in Between', so there's plenty to digest!

If you were unable to get to King's College, Cambridge for 18th-20th September, here is your chance to get the lowdown. We've asked our expert panel to take their VIP Passes and come back with all the issues, the highlights, and the buzz!

Digital reinvention for the media industry: what to do and how to make it happen

As the broadcast industry reinvents itself, the firms that lead in the future will be those that fully embrace the concept of Digital Reinvention and the profound reassessment of business practices that it requires.

Digital Reinvention rethinks customer and partner relationships putting customer needs, use, and aspirations first. It requires that media organizations offer customers compelling new personalised experiences, establish new focus, build new expertise, and devise new ways of working to thrive in this rapidly changing business environment.
