The creative industries make a significant contribution to the economy in the United Kingdom, which is a leading exporter of channels, programmes and formats. On 21 November we’ll be launching our MEDIA SUMMITS series in London with a BREXIT BRIEFING, looking at the implications for the media and entertainment sector of the changing relationship between the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe. Registration for the reception and presentation are now open and places are filling up. Meanwhile, the first ever HbbTV Awards will be presented in Rome next month and I’m pleased to be one of the judges on the panel. You have until 6 October to submit your entry if you’re involved in the HbbTV community and feel your contribution should be recognised.
