Brexit Strategy

  • June 27, 2018
    5:00 pm - 8:30 pm


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

This Media Summit returns 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?

Join an audience of leading media executives, senior advisors, analysts and consultants to discuss the latest thinking.

Network with colleagues over drinks to discuss the particular challenges and opportunities for your business.

Advance registration is required and only a limited number of places will be available.
