A brand new meeting place for creative media people across the UK will hold its inaugural event at the College of Music in Leeds on April 25/26th.

The Creative Cities Convention will be hosted by broadcaster and journalist Kirsty Wark and will provide a platform for anyone interested in the business of content creation and growth across the nations and regions.

There is vibrant content production across the UK and this new convention will ensure we have a platform to engage with broadcasters and producers who are creating great content wherever they happen to be based’, says Pact CEO John McVay, who is fully backing the CCC, along with Channel 4, the BBC, ITV and Channel 5.

A top line-up of creatives, industry leaders and commentators including Sir Peter Bazalgette, executive chairman of ITV; Peter Salmon, Chief Creative Officer at Endemol Shine Group and Ofcom Director of Standards and Audience Protection Vikki Cook, will celebrate the richness and diversity of talent and the growth of global production across the UK.  Speakers will also examine how the Government’s new industrial strategy can benefit the creative industries outside London and reflect on the discussions about Channel 4 increasing its contribution to the nations and regions.
