The Children’s Media Conference is the UK’s principal gathering for all media professionals associated with kids’ content creation and distribution. From radio, TV, film and the internet, to apps, publishing, games, licensing, museums, galleries, theatre and educational media – every corner of the kids’ industry is represented, and over 1,000 delegates meet annually for the July Conference. The CMC also organises other events through the year such as the UK@Kidscreen Delegation to Miami (February), and the Animation Business Conference (November).

Lauren began her career in events and marketing after studying and settling in Lincoln. Originally from Sheffield, Lauren returned in 2009 to study Film Studies and Screenwriting at Sheffield Hallam, producing a number of short films and working within the cultural industries sector along the way.

Lauren has had the pleasure of being involved in CMC since 2012 and was appointed Director of Operations in 2022, with responsibility for the logistical and operational aspects of the conference.
