K7 Media is bringing a high-level Norwegian delegation to Salford next week (11-12 January). TV2, Norway’s largest commercial TV enterprise, is looking to create a media cluster similar to that at Salford, in Bergen on Norway’s west coast.
The team of 30 delegates includes Monica Maeland, Chief Commissioner and Head of the City Government of Bergen, Alf Hildrum, Managing Director and Editor in Chief, TV2 and Grethe Gynnild-Johnsen, Director of Regions NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) as well as a senior team of three from the University of Bergen led by Deputy Director General, Tore Tungodden. Broadcaster TV2 has drafted in K7 Media to facilitate and manage the fact-finding trip.
The delegation will meet with senior representatives from Peel Media, the Manchester Digital Development Agency and the BBC. Andy Waters, Head of Studios, MediaCityUK will show the visitors the new studio complex which incorporates the largest high definition facilities in Europe.
The team from Norway will look to gain insight into the relationship between the developer, occupiers and public sector bodies. They will also look at how the BBC has managed its relocation.
