This major annual conference will look at how to deliver the proposals set out in the Creative Economy Strategy. The event will explore the recommendations to strengthen skills supply through greater collaboration with industry, apprenticeships, investment in research and new dedicated institutions.
Leading speakers will also discuss how to establish an effective local and regional infrastructure which ensures creative industries have access to business, IP and funding support, and ultimately contribute to regional and national economic development.
