5G and the Creative Industries: Art, Tourism & Heritage
30th Sep 2021, 10am
Join this event to hear how 5G brings new and exciting opportunities in the Arts, Tourism and Heritage sectors and can help to tackle some of the key challenges facing the sector in a post-pandemic world.
The ‘cultural sector’ contributed £32.3bn of Gross Value Added to the UK economy in 2018, 22% of that directly from the ‘Arts’ sub-sector. Tourism, the UK’s third largest export, was worth £127bn in 2019/20, accounting for some 3.1 million jobs.
5G is not just the next generation of mobile-tech communications but the means to transform experience and reach new audiences and markets. Learn what 5G can do for your organisation and hear how you can harness this potential with case studies from other organisations who have already trialled and deployed 5G.
About the 5G and Creative Industries webinar series
Creative Industries are – and always will be – a backbone of the world’s communities and economies. Nowhere is this truer than in the UK, where our Creative Industries are not only considered among the world’s very best, they’re also essential to our economy.
In 2019 alone, Creative Industries contributed £115.9bn of value to the UK economy, according to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport. That’s greater than the automotive, aerospace, life sciences and oil and gas industries combined.
But this vital UK industry is under pressure from rising expectations and ever shrinking budgets, in addition to a strong desire, and need, to embrace more sustainable ways of working and ensuring they can engage diverse audiences.
As a result, creative businesses are eager to explore new, innovative methods of delivering content and experiences, to keep up with rapidly evolving audience demands and remain competitive.
5G could be the answer.
