Why this week's Sheffield-based event has more to offer the licensing sector than ever before.
The Children’s Media Conference is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year and during the last decade it has built itself up to be a must-attend event for those working in kids’ media in the UK. Indeed, the strapline on its website simply says ‘You have to be there – everybody else is’.
The mix of speakers, sessions and workshops – covering everything from UK tax breaks, funding, monetising digital content, the future of comics, how to make your audience laugh, freemium for kids, a chance to meet the commissioners from key channels and how to tackle the challenges of international co-production – attracts well over 800 delegates (850 headed to Sheffield in 2012 and the organiser is expecting the same again, if not more, for 2013).
