2022 is a crucial year for the media, with several major developments prompting big questions for the industry. The long-awaited online safety bill is making its way through parliament, the BBC is marking its centenary year amidst doubt over its future funding model, the future of Channel 4 is in question, and the war in Ukraine is bringing the crisis of global mis- and disinformation into ever sharper focus.
IPPR’s day-long, in-person conference will bring together senior leaders from across the sector to explore the challenges the industry is facing. Through speeches, discussions, and breakout sessions we’ll be considering the changes we expect to see in 2022, what they mean for the future of the media, and how the industry might respond.
There will be a strong focus on participation and sharing of ideas through interactive sessions facilitated by experts, along with long networking breaks, giving attendees a chance to connect after two years of virtual Oxford Media Conventions.
This year, we are hosting the Convention in London as a one-off. It will take place on Wednesday 13 July 2022, between 9:30am – 6:30pm, at The Ashworth Centre, Lincoln’s Inn, London, WC2A 3SW. We will be returning to Oxford in future years.
