2Screen - Make an event out of TV

Event

We are watching more TV than at any time in the last five years.

That statistic is usually followed by 'despite the rise of the Internet'. We're in the opposite camp. We believe TV viewing is increasing because of the Internet. The social web turns TV into an event, a shared experience.

And as the social web becomes increasingly central to our lives, these events become more and more important. It becomes the nationwide, and sometimes worldwide water-cooler.

Where’s it all going? And what's the next cool thing going to be?

Join us 14 October 2010 evening at Conway Hall.
