BBC Worldwide's annual Showcase will welcome a number of tech giants to this year's event in Liverpool.

Apple, Netflix, Amazon, Facebook, Google and Hulu are all expected to attend as are regional SVoDs and telcos such as Showmax, Stan, Deutsche Telecom, iFlix and Hulu.

The event, which takes place at Liverpool's ACC from 18th-21st February, welcomes commissioners, producers and international TV buyers who will screen brand new British TV content and attend a range of panels.

Among the new programming on show will be Jodie Whittaker's debut in Doctor Who; Good Omens, a new co-prod between the BBC and Amazon; and natural history series Serengeti.

Paul Dempsey, president global markets, BBC Worldwide, said: “We continually evolve Showcase to make sure it fits the needs of our customers and this year we’ll be hosting a wider range of companies than ever before. 

"We’ll also be joined by many of the key names from Britain’s biggest independent production companies, including BBC Studios, as well as producers, broadcasters and financiers from all around the world who’ll be discussing their latest content strategies, new projects and global trends.”
