This year, the TVX-in-Industry programme will take place on the third day of the conference, Friday 7th June, as part of an innovative bazaar event at BBC Quay House. We are looking for stand-out presentations which will help to provoke discussion, networking and collaboration amongst conference delegates throughout the day. We would like to showcase significant advances in research and development, technologies and real-world experiences that have industrial applicability. Contributions concerning business cases, marketing and market insights, case studies, best practices and lessons learned are also welcome. In this regard, your participation in the TVX-in-Industry would be an ideal opportunity to demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to research and innovation. TVX-in-Industry offers proven opportunities for your organisation to make hundreds of delegates aware of your commitment.
