The Big TV Festival 2018

For the first time ever, UK’s largest TV platforms – Sky Media, ITV and Channel 4 – together with Thinkbox, joined to host the  inaugural The Big TV Festival touting the true power of Television.

150 of the UK media industry’s rising stars, who were nominated by their companies, spent February 8th and 9th in the forest in Hampshire being educated, inspired and entertained by our leading professionals and talent.

Hosted by two reality show favourites, Scarlett Moffatt and Jamie Laing, they led the packed agenda which included shining a light on the people behind the Magic of TV – from idea to screen, and everything in between with the three owner’s commissioners.

The group was then educated with how technology is changing the way we watch and they soaked up the insights as the lid was lifted on advertising from every angle. They  heard from top brands like Lloyds Bank and giffgaff, creative mavericks of Chaka Sobhani and Rosie Arnold and even the inspired mind of Rory Sutherland.

And as an industry that never stops innovating, the event wrapped up with leading Futurists, and also the media owner’s MDs, sharing their take on where the viewers, advertisers and the industry is heading.

A perfect start to a year that again promises to a great one for TV!
