Broadcasters in the UK face an uncertain future, with the deadline for Brexit looming and the prospect of no deal with the European Union jeopardising the country’s position as an international hub for TV.
Brexit is causing consternation among the major media companies that are established in London and are relying on Ofcom licenses to support their EU-wide activities, says entertainment and media lawyer Ingrid Silver.
Speaking just prior to his 2016 IBC Conference Keynote Sir Martin said the latest forecast from GroupM , WPP’s media investment management arm, shows that TV is pretty resilient in the face of the digital revolution.
IBC is run by the industry, for the industry. Six leading international bodies own IBC, representing both exhibitors and visitors. Their insights ensure that the annual convention is always relevant, comprehensive and timely. It is with their support that IBC remains the leading international forum for everyone involved in content creation, management and delivery.
