Our daily lives rely heavily on a digital infrastructure, from working from home, speaking to a loved one or watching TV. It’s important that every part of the UK has access to high quality, secure digital infrastructure, connectivity, technology and the services to support people in every aspect of their life. The sector is a cornerstone of the UK economy, in 2019, the digital sector contributed nearly £151 billion to the economy and constituted 9% of the national workforce*.

ITN Business will showcase the organisations that are playing a part in the digital revolution and enabling connectivity, along with the people implementing this transformation in Digital Britain: Connecting the Nation. The news-style programme will be presented by journalist and ITV News presenter, Duncan Golestani, and will launch at Connected Britain, London, 11th-12th September 2024.

The programme will feature contributions from thought leaders in the connectivity and digital infrastructure sector, Connected Britain, MobileUK, TechUK and UK Telecoms Innovation Network. Digital Britain: Connecting the Nation will also feature case study led stories of the impact the digital infrastructure sector has on connecting the nation and looking at future technology and innovation.
The programme will be hosted on the ITN Business Hub, and will be promoted across digital channels alongside a campaign with The Economist.

There are commercial opportunities for leading organisations to be featured in the programme and spearhead their own news item. If your organisation wants to share what you stand for and be part of this important conversation about connecting Britain, please contact Head Programming Director James Linden or Programming Director James Salver.
