Bob Bakish, Chief Executive Officer of Viacom Inc., will deliver the International Keynote at this year’s RTS London Conference.
The biennial one-day conference will explore the accelerating pace of consolidation across global media sectors and how this drive for scale is impacting the commissioning and production landscape. Global leaders will gather to discuss the future evolution of television both in the UK and internationally. With giant technology companies pushing deeper into video and threatening a further wave of disruption, where does this leave the traditional media majors, the UK PSBs and production companies, both big and small? How are issues around trust and competition being addressed by organisations and by regulators? And what will be the outcomes for viewers?
This is the first time the RTS London Conference has been sponsored by Viacom, and it is co-chaired this year by David Lynn, President Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) and James Currell, President, VIMN, UK, Northern and Eastern Europe.
High profile speakers already confirmed include: Tony Hall, Director-General of the BBC; Carolyn McCall, Chief Executive of ITV; Alex Mahon, Chief Executive of Channel 4 and Sharon White, Chief Executive of Ofcom – with more to come.
The registration fee for the Conference is £570 + VAT. Early bird tickets have now sold out.
