Building on the success of the Future TV Show conference and business summit (www.futuretvevent.com), which is now in its third year, WTG Events has launched a new exhibition and conference format dedicated to the world of media convergence.

Filling the opening for a smaller more focussed event the Future TV Show will provide industry professionals with all the tools to stay ahead in this fast moving industry, and enable them to speak to over 60 key suppliers who will be exhibiting.


Taking place in the superb Grimaldi Forum, Monaco from 14 -15 May 2008, this event will enable professionals in the industry to keep bang -up to date with developments in the industry through a focussed high level conference and a brand new trade only exhibition.
