What does ‘Brexit’ mean for the media and entertainment sector?


27 June 2018

Two years after the referendum in the United Kingdom on membership of the European Union and just over nine months until the deadline for leaving, the picture appears to be no clearer.

Our first Media Summits Brexit Briefing successfully set the agenda and raised the profile of the problems facing the media and creative sector.

This summit returned to questions that still remain largely unanswered:

  • What are the implications of Brexit for international broadcasters based in Britain, delivering services to the rest of Europe?
  • What does Brexit mean for the workforce in the creative sector, the freedom of movement for talent, or practical production logistics?
  • How will Brexit affect funding, finance, incentives and investment, or local production quotas?
  • What will Brexit mean for the portability of content for consumers, with Britain outside the European Union Digital Single Market?
