Apply for the opportunity to speak at The Future of Media 2024

The call for content form for The Future of Media London and The Future of Media Manchester has now closed. If you would like to make a session and/or speaker suggestion for this or future events, you can email the conference production team below.

The Future of Media Manchester: September 26

Manchester is increasingly becoming a thriving media hub in the UK, breaking down barriers regarding media being a London-centric industry. This launch event will host up to 600 of the most important people operating in the north of England and Scotland and is so much more than a regional conference. We want it to be worthy of the work that is being done from this part of Britain.

The Future of Media London: October 8/9

In only its 4th edition, The Future of Media is already firmly established as the leading commercial media event in the UK. 600+ media leaders and future leaders come together in London to hear best practice in commercial media buying, selling, planning, as well as insights on changing media business models and market opportunities. When we launched this event in 2021 for the first time, we had a five-year vision to make this our flagship event. In its short lifespan, it has already attracted a number of the most prominent figures in the UK media market as this hall of fame will showcase.

Who are we looking for?

The industry’s best and brightest, media leaders and future leaders, generalists, specialists and more.
