Philippe Dauman, Josh Sapan, David Zaslav Join RTS Lineup

LONDON — Philippe Dauman, president and CEO of Viacom; Michael Lombardo, HBO’s president of programming; Josh Sapan, president and CEO of AMC Networks; and David Zaslav, president and CEO of Discovery Communications, will be among the headline speakers at the Royal Television Society’s Cambridge Convention, one of the U.K.’s top gatherings of senior TV executives.

BBC director-general Tony Hall will chair the biennial event, which takes place in Cambridge from Sept. 16-18. The event will look ahead to television in 2020, and explore the challenges for content, creativity and business models.

Hall said: “The TV landscape is changing fast. Viewers have access to a multitude of new ways to watch their favorite programs, and since the last RTS Cambridge Convention in 2013 there have been seismic changes across the production sector. The 2015 convention will bring together senior industry figures and future leaders to analyze and debate the industry as a whole.”

Over the course of three days, the convention will aim to discover what further surprises may lie in store for the industry and how content creation and business models will need to adapt to face the future. It will also explore what the next decade holds for public service broadcasting in the U.K.

Other headline speakers will include David Abraham, CEO of Channel 4, and Sharon White, CEO of U.K. media regulator Ofcom.
