Alps is the Chair of Thinkbox, the marketing body for commercial TV in the UK. She established the organisation in 2006 in order to prove TV’s enduring effectiveness, to explain its dynamic future via all technologies and to champion creativity.

As a result, TV revenue in the UK has seen six consecutive periods of growth and audience increases across total TV.
The event will also feature other speakers, including leading academics and industry experts who will share their insights and advice from their own experience about how advertisers can use today’s television to drive sales and profits for their businesses.
