All TV planning is a good thing, obviously. TV planning means you are using TV advertising, and anyone doing that is already smart, sensible, and on track for some TV-powered success. They’re probably charming, kind, and well-read too. But some TV planning is better than others. Some is even better than that. And then there’s the very best TV planning, the golden stuff we can all learn from.

That is what this event is all about. It’s why it’s called Best of TV Planning 2021. It’s a lot to live up to, but we have a line-up that promises to deliver (much like TV planning itself). Is there a more fruitful way to spend an hour? No. So press play now.
