The event that aims to pioneer a new chapter in the media industry

Launched in 2021 in London, The Future of Media has become the UK's leading business conference dedicated to commercial media. Powered by The Media Leader and driven by four core values of disruption, innovation, courage and excellence, we are delighted to expand the debate, discussion and celebration of our industry to the media community in the north of England and Scotland.

The inaugural edition of The Future of Media Manchester will gather over 400+ media leaders and future leaders to hear best practice in commercial media buying, selling, planning, as well as insights on changing media business models and market opportunities. The Future of Media Manchester will attract the most senior delegates and speakers from across the industry, fostering partnerships and connecting buy and sell side.

Our aim is to pioneer a new chapter in the industry; to bring you the most important conversations in commercial media. Hosted within weeks of The Future of Media London, this event has been built to ensure the entire ecosystem has a voice. For us, this is not a regional event. This is the future of media.
