ConnectED Autumn 2021 - Now closed

Once again ConnectED offers delegates the opportunity to connect with commissioners from the BBC, Channel 4, Disney+, YouTube and more across genres spanning drama, documentary, factual entertainment and popular factual, short-form, daytime and early peak and comedy.

Our speed meetings are 10 minutes long and are scheduled according to the host’s availability so please ensure you will be available during their one hour slot before requesting meetings. We will do our best to confirm at least one of your requests but cannot guarantee that you will secure a meeting.

Applications for our October series are now closed.
