Broadcast is teaming up with its sister titles to launch Creative Week, five days of high-level events in June covering the television business, film world and advertising community.
Creative Week will kick off on 2 June in London and comprise The Media Summit, the Broadcast International TV Forum, HD Evolved and The VFX Summit, as well as a number of breakfast events, roundtable seminars, film screenings, drinks parties and a gala reception.
The week is designed to discuss the changes in the way people consume, create and distribute content via a number of high-level case studies, keynote speeches and provocative panel sessions.
The Media Summit, a flagship one-day event that will bring together the leaders of the UK’s biggest media companies, will be held at Bafta on Wednesday 4 June.
Speakers include ITV chief executive Adam Crozier, Channel 4 boss David Abraham, All3Media chief executive Farah Ramzan Golant and Warner Bros UK boss Josh Berger, and many more.
The International TV Forum, to be held at Bafta on Thursday 5 June, will discuss the future of distributing content globally.
Speakers include buyers from key UK broadcasters such as Channel 5 and Sky, top indie producers and a slew of major international distributors.
It will also be the first time that bosses of the five biggest British sales firms – BBC Worldwide, ITV Studios Global Entertainment, Shine International, All3Media International and Zodiak Rights – will be on a single panel.
Conor Dignam, chief executive of Broadcast publisher Media Business Insight (MBI), said: “Creative Week will bring together the worlds of TV, film, production, advertising and other key media sectors to showcase and celebrate the best of international creativity and media. We have a fantastic line-up of speakers confirmed already and more to come.”
