Salford, Gtr Manchester, UK
Now in its 14th year, the Salford Conference is the most important forum to discuss television from a non-metropolitan perspective.
The 2007 Conference, to be held on 11 January 2007 at the Lowry Centre, Salford Quays, will focus on the opportunities presented by the new digital world for the industry outside London. It will look at the effect on the rest of the country of the BBC’s proposed move to Salford, and as the commercial TV industry changes at bewildering speed it will look at the future of ITV in the Nations and Regions. There will be discussions on the new platforms and interactive media and a chance to meet the experts, The Conference will showcase new platforms and technologies, offer a scriptwriters’ master class, and provide an opportunity over lunch to “Speed Date the Commissioners!”
