About the Oxford Media Convention
This one-day conference, organised by ippr in partnership with MediaGuardian, returns for its eighth year. The Oxford Media Convention 2010 will focus on the realities of a converged media world as senior government and industry figures come together to discuss current and forthcoming challenges and opportunities around media policy, strategy and regulation.
Seen by many as the industry defining event, the Oxford Media Convention provides an important opportunity for senior figures from new and traditional media, academia and regulatory bodies to think creatively about the regulatory framework we want to see develop to guarantee the success of our creative and media industries.
Who should attend?
•    Corporate affairs executives and strategists who want to gain an early insight into the future policy direction of media regulation and understand the long-term impact on their business.
•    Solution, technology and content providers who want to understand the economic and practical challenges emerging from convergence, and how policy may respond.
What can you expect?
•    Policy-focused debate on the regulatory implications of the changing media world. •    Long-term thinking and solutions to address the challenges facing our changing media and
communications market. •    Insight from the elite of the UK government and regulators and the leading lights from the
domestic and global media industries. •    Networking opportunities and your chance to meet the people making the headlines.
