ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?
What does ‘Brexit’ mean for the media and entertainment sector?
Come to the launch of this series of Media Summits to discuss the challenges and opportunities for the media market.
These Media Summits will consider the implications for the media and entertainment sector of the changing relationship between the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe.
The effect of ‘Brexit’ is yet to be determined, but media and entertainment companies cannot afford to wait and see what the impact will be.
We will address the implications for media production, distribution, advertising, technology, talent and investment. There is a lot to discuss.
Member associations representing organisations from across the media and communications sector are supporting the initiative.
In this special launch event, television presenter and journalist Sam Naz will discuss the current implications of Brexit with a group of special guests in front of an audience of industry leaders.
Be prepared with questions and topics that you would like to cover in this opening discussion and subsequent summits. The event will be recorded on video and highlights will be published online.
Following the presentation in the auditorium there will be an opportunity to network with colleagues during a reception in the adjacent private bar.
Advance registration is required and only a limited number of places will be available.
