United Kingdom:

Delegates at this conference will assess latest developments in the links between broadcasting and the second screen.

They will consider challenges and opportunities as broadcasting and social media integrate in editorial and production processes - as well as the implications of the changing commercial relationships between content producers, distributors and ISPs, particularly for investment, innovation and competition.

As UK and European policymakers consider plans to release more spectrum for the mobile market and to reform regulation of the connected television space, sessions will also focus on emerging commercial opportunities and regulatory challenges.

The agenda includes discussion on priorities for consumer experience - including interactive services, interoperability and high definition delivery. Delegates will also examine the next steps for regulating television convergence to protect consumers, encourage competitive markets and support future growth as outlined in the recently published recommendations by the Future of Innovation in Television Technology Taskforce.

We are delighted that Dan Biddle, Head of Broadcast Partnerships, Twitter UK; David Mahoney, Director of Policy Development, Ofcom; Dan Taylor, Head of BBC iPlayer, BBC and Jane Weedon, Vice-President Business Development, International, Shazam have agreed to deliver keynote addresses at this seminar.
