The Rt Hon Sir Vince Cable MP, the Leader of the Liberal Democrats and former Business Secretary, will address a key summit this month assessing the likely consequences for the digital media and creative industries in a range of Brexit scenarios.
The UK is the leading international hub for global media groups and is home to more television channels than any other European country. Over 750 channels licensed in the UK are aimed at audiences in other countries.
Following a successful launch last November that raised the profile of the problems facing the media and creative sector, this Media Summits event returns to questions that still remain largely unanswered:
Two years after the referendum in the UK on membership of the European Union and just over nine months until the deadline for leaving, the picture appears to be no clearer. Media and entertainment companies cannot afford to wait and see what the impact will be.
On the eve of the European Council summit in Brussels at which leaders will discuss issues including Brexit, this evening event (June 27th) in central London will provide a forum for discussion and networking for media executives and advisors, including lawyers, accountants and consultants.
Dr David Docherty OBE, the Chair of the Digital Television Group, will moderate the discussion and invite questions from an audience of industry leaders to a panel of experts:
“Whatever you think about Brexit, it is a key concern for the media and creative sector,” says Dr William Cooper, co-founder and Executive Producer of Media Summits. “This summit provides a forum for media and communications executives and professional advisor partners to discuss what Brexit means for their business.”
You can secure a place at this limited capacity event on the evening of Wednesday June 27th from the Media Summits web site.
