Interested in the future of the BBC and public sector broadcasting?

If so this year’s Oxford Media Convention is a must-attend event at which important announcements can be expected. Reserve your place now to ensure you are part of this debate and hear first-hand from the Secretary of State John Whittingdale, Sir David Clementi, author of an independent review on the governance of the BBC and Rona Fairhead, chair of the BBC Trust


Some of the fundamentals of media regulation and policy will be redefined in 2016. With a consensus strongly against the status quo, the scale, scope and governance of the BBC will be set for the next decade, with far reaching consequences for UK creative sectors and citizens. In Brussels we will see the widest ever review of Audio-Visual and the Digital Single Market. At the same time, the UK content and distribution sectors are facing unprecedented change and competition.

The Oxford Media Convention brings together the key players in UK media policy to debate these and other key challenges at a time when many argue that protecting the public interest through media and communications policy requires radical and fundamental policy change.

Celebrating its 15th year, The Oxford Media Convention has been established as the leading gathering of the industry. It traditionally attracts over 300 senior figures, including leading politicians and policymakers, industry leaders and practitioners, analysts and competitors from across the UK media.
