The 2020 Children’s Media Conference has become ‘The Children’s Media Community’, with the updated theme of ‘Still Here Right Now’, running regular online content leading up to a virtual conference in July.
The Children’s Media Conference (CMC), now in its 17th year, is temporarily becoming ‘The Children’s Media Community’ for 2020 in response to the cancellation of its planned conference in Sheffield from 7-9 July due to COVID-19. With a revised theme of ‘Still Here Right Now’, CMC will provide an ongoing service to all involved in the children’s media industry, offering a programme of webinars over the next few months, culminating in a virtual conference in July.
The first online event is a focus on China supported by the Department of Trade and Industry.
On Tuesday 21st April there will be a webinar open to all looking at how the Chinese market is reviving itself with a focus on opportunities for international companies looking to work in China. The webinar will be free of charge, and details on how to join will be on the CMC website.
On Wednesday 22nd April there will be limited slots available to join virtual meetings with key Chinese platforms and co-producers who are looking to work with British companies. Delegates will need to register interest with CMC and pay a fee of £50.00 + VAT.
CMC is planning a regular weekly roll out of webinars and content, offering the children’s community a wide range of discussions on the topics that matter and a chance to hear from commissioners, funders, research companies and master-practitioners. The webinars will culminate in a limited virtual conference from Tuesday 7 – Thursday 9 July including the International Exchange which will run via virtual one-to-one meetings.
