Actionable Insight, Thought-Leading Speakers

We’ve worked hard to put together a fantastic line-up of media technology thought leaders, who will share their views on the most important commercial issues facing the industry.

The agenda (see below) draws on the most up-to-date industry market research and analysis from Devoncroft Partners, including our Big Broadcast Survey (BBS), which we’ve been publishing annually for the past decade. The sheer size, scale, international reach, and longevity of Devoncroft’s Big Broadcast Survey make it a unique source of industry data that does not exist anywhere else.

We’ve set aside time in the program to review the findings from the 2023 BBS, as well as our comprehensive overview and analysis of the size and growth prospects for the broadcast and media technology sector.

Using insights from our ongoing research activities, we’ve programmed an agenda that offers delegates a unique opportunity to hear from the right people, speaking about the right topics, at the right moment in time for the industry.

If you’ve been to a past Devoncroft Executive Summit at you know that we deliver unique content at actionable insight at candid discussions with industry thought leaders at and a focus on the commercial drivers of industry change.

We’d like to thank our speakers and panelists who will share insight, knowledge, and ideas for best practice that will undoubtedly prove invaluable to delegates.
