Conference Theme: Right Here Right Now
Right Here Right Now is a response to challenges set by the Changemakers at CMC last July – not only on climate change, but also diversity, inclusion and empowerment of new and young voices. It reflects the speed of change in the kids’ content business landscape. New platforms, new funding, new approaches to IP, new tech, new regulatory issues, new business consolidation and continuing audience fragmentation – it’s all Right Here Right Now, and CMC will address it, not as future forecasting but “in the moment” right here, in Sheffield. Make a date in your diary for CMC 2020 and join us to be part of making change.
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.
