Event description

Description

The​ ​​Changing​ ​Media​ ​Summit​ ​returns​ ​on​ ​7​ ​March​ ​2018.

Our​ ​flagship​ ​media​ ​event​ ​brings ​the industry​ together to discuss the most important issues facing us today. This year, we’ll ​be focusing on the​ ​importance​ ​of​ ​balance and responsibility.

As​ ​the​ ​mainstream​ ​media​ ​faces ​increasing​ ​accusations​ ​of​ ​bias​ ​and misinformation,​ ​we’re asking what constitutes balance in news?​ ​And as​ ​new​ ​and​ ​independent​ outlets​ ​make​ ​headway​,​ ​how​ ​can​ ​they work with the mainstream​ ​to​ ​best​ ​serve​ ​readers​ ​and​ ​the​ ​public?

As news and information consumption changes, social media platforms are are finding themselves under more scrutiny than ever before​.​ ​So what​ ​responsibility​ ​do these platforms have for​ ​the​ ​content​ ​they​ ​host?​ ​Should​ ​they​ ​be judged​ ​by​ ​the​ ​same​ ​standards​ ​as​ ​news​ ​providers?

Responsible​ ​use​ ​of​ ​data​ ​is​ ​also​ ​a​ ​key​ ​issue:​ ​just​ ​how​ ​much​ ​are​ ​brands​ ​and​ ​platforms collecting -​ ​and​ ​what​ ​constitutes​ ​appropriate​ ​use​ ​of​ ​that data?​ ​And following​ ​recent high-profile​ ​hacking​ ​scandals,​ ​how should ​they​ ​act​ ​to​ ​make​ ​sure​ ​that​ ​data​ ​is​ ​secure?

In​ ​addition,​ ​we’ll​ ​look​ ​at​ ​the​ ​issues​ ​facing​ ​the​ ​ad​ ​industry.​ ​With​ ​diversity​ ​a​ ​much​ ​discussed topic​ ​in​ ​recent​ ​years,​ ​what​ ​are​ ​brands​ ​and​ ​agencies​ ​actually​ ​doing​ ​to​ ​promote​ ​change?​ ​And what​ ​are​ ​new​ ​platforms​ ​such​ ​as​ ​AI,​ ​VR​ ​and​ ​home​ ​assistants​ ​bringing​ ​to​ ​the​ ​industry?

Join decision makers from ​across​ ​the​ ​media​ ​spectrum​, ​as​ ​we​ ​debate​ ​how​ ​the industry​ ​is​ ​dealing​ ​with​ ​balance​ ​and​ ​responsibility.
