The Connected TV World Summit is back!

Join us for the biggest thought-leadership event dedicated to the future of Pay TV, broadcasting and streaming. 

We are delighted to announce that Connected TV World Summit 2021 will take place as adigital event on 15th-16th June. Registration is now open for the No.1 strategy conference focused on the business and technology transformation of TV, as the industry looks to grow total audience, total engagement, and total video entertainment revenue. 

Connected TV World Summit is firmly established as a forum for new thinking and best practice, with the emphasis on solutions to current challenges and real-world implementation. Our digital event last October attracted over 1,000 attendees from some of the biggest names in Pay TV, broadcasting, streaming, studios and TV tech.  

This year promises to be bigger and better. 

The two days of content will include our ever-popular pre-recorded interviews and panels, and this year a VIP audience will have access to our new live digital experience, which combines live content and genuine networking – an opportunity to connect with customers, friends and colleagues from across the world from your home office. There will be meeting zones, demo booths and tables for up to eight people, so you can get together and recapture that wonderful event networking experience.
