Commissioning Forum: 140 speed meetings available
More than 140 commissioner speed meetings are available at the Broadcast Commissioning Forum, which will take place on 3 November.
The event offers two session streams across a single day, covering scripted and non-scripted programming. Confirmed speakers include Sky head of non-scripted commissioning Celia Taylor; BBC director content Charlotte Moore, Channel 4 head of comedy and acting head of drama Phil Clarke and ITV head of entertainment Siobhan Greene.
Alongside the extensive programme of speakers, the event will for the first time give attendees the chance to meet with and pitch three commissioners across a wide range of genres.
More than 30 commissioners will be offering meetings, including the likes of BBC comedy commissioning editor Kristian Smith, UKTV deputy director of commissioning Hilary Rosen, Discovery vice president of development and production Andrew O’Connell and David Brindley, documentaries commissioning editor at Channel 4.
After delegates book their ticket they will be able to apply to meet with up to three commissioners, as their first, second and third choices.
There will be limited spaces, so it will not be possible to guarantee meetings with commissioners.
The Broadcast Commissioning Forum takes place on 3 November at Picturehouse Central
