Where: BT Tower, London, 45 Maple Street, London, W1T 4JZ

Join Rise for an evening exploring the opportunities that 5G will bring in content creation and production.

With claims that 5G will bring powerful capabilities and functionality to production workflows, will it really revolutionise our working practices, as well as the way that audiences consume media?

  • examine current testing and work that has been done to date with 5G in the sports, media & entertainment industry;
  • share opportunities that will 5G will bring in content creation and production;
  • learn more about the risks of 5G and how will they affect us;
  • highlight the steps media businesses need to take to prepare for 5G.
