London has been chosen as the host city for the first Global Broadcast Summit to take place on 15-16 May 2012. The Summit will bring together Chief Executives of the world’s leading broadcasters, as well as regulators and government officials to debate and discuss the global broadcast industry from a strategic economic, technological and regulatory perspective. Moreover, against a backdrop of media crisis and uncertainty, the summit will look at television and its changing role in society, in both the public and private broadcasting arenas.
Michael McEwen, Global Broadcast Summit Chair said, “Digital innovation, changing social policy and the evolution of consumer behaviour have revolutionised television broadcasting and in turn impacted content development, production, delivery and how audiences access and utilise their TV. The Global Broadcast Summit provides a much needed opportunity for broadcast leaders from across the world, to meet in a peer environment to debate, assess and collaborate on the needs and opportunities for the future”.
