This year’s RTS Cambridge Convention, chaired by Channel 4 CEO David Abraham, will focus on the value chain of content creation.
Headlining speakers discussing the theme of the convention – “Whose Side Are You On? Quality Content: Who Pays? Who Decides? Who Profits?” – include Dido Harding, CEO of TalkTalk Group; Paul Lee, president of ABC Entertainment Group; Nancy Tellem, entertainment and digital media president at Microsoft; and Marc Watson, CEO of BT Vision.
Other speakers include Maria Miller MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport; Richard Desmond, founder and owner of Northern & Shell; and Mike Fries, CEO of Liberty Global.
“We are putting content creation firmly at the heart of the agenda,” said C4′s Abraham. “Through a combination of UK and global industry leaders, we will examine how economics, technologies and politics are affecting the creation of high-quality creative ideas and output.”
The bi-annual event takes place from September 11 to 13 in Cambridge.
