Opening Keynote – Michael Rosen

Acclaimed Poet, broadcaster, YouTube star, children’s advocate and former Children’s Laureate Michael Rosen will deliver the CMC 2018 Opening Keynote on Tuesday 3 July at 6pm.


Our Conference theme – ‘What’s Next?’

We’ll be focusing on the future and looking at what’s next for media-makers and distributors in both financing and content; the next steps for inclusivity in production and representation; what’s next for audiences; and what’s next in the tech that will define how we’ll all be working, viewing, listening and interacting.


Who attends?

The Children’s Media Conference is the most important event in the UK for everyone involved in developing, producing and distributing content for kids. We open our doors to delegates from television, radio, film, games, interactive media, magazine and book publishing, the licensing and toy sectors and the arts and culture sectors.
