The event will be led off by CBeebies Controller Kay Benbow, with her perspective on how the tax break is working.  Kay will be around to network too and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to meet producers, writers, funders, business affairs consultants, broadcasters and training providers at the free lunch (kindly sponsored by Industry Media) and networking drinks at the end of the day (sponsored by Aardman Animations).

There’s a full programme of panels discussing how the animation tax break is working in practice – qualification, deal structuring, production planning and accounting, the affects on partnerships, broadcaster and funder relationships, the international implications – and the creative questions also addressed (as always at CMC).
