LONDON -- IP&TV World Forum 2012 has been hailed a success, with more than 7,163 visitors filling the halls at London’s Olympia last week. The event, which has been rebranded to TV Connect for 2013, saw a ten per cent increase on last year’s attendee numbers and fuelled the debate on the converging TV market, further strengthening its position as the global platform for this dynamic market.

With over 300 speakers at the show, delegates and attendees had the opportunity to listen to huge industry players, including Jesse Redniss, Vice President of Digital Strategy and Development at NBC Universal; Shawn Layden, Chief Operating Officer at Sony Network Entertainment; and Kristin Frank, General Manager of Digital Media at MTV, who gave the opening keynote speech on day one (keynotes are viewable on the event website).

General Manager of Twitter UK Tony Wang also delivered a keynote at the show, which focussed on the need for content sharing, as did Omid Ashtari, Business Development Director at foursquare, who provided insight on how brands can engage with their consumers.
