The IPPR Oxford Media Convention, an annual gathering of media policymakers in the UK, is offering VLV members a special discount of 10% on the usual ticket price of £295.00. If more than three VLV members wish to buy tickets then VLV can also apply for an additional group discount of 15%.
Speakers at this year's event include Damian Collins MP, Sir David Clementi, Mark Thompson and James Currell of Viacom International. More information about the conference can be found here.
The event will focus on the current crisis of media which represents 'a once in a generation opportunity to transform UK communications in the public interest.' Organisers say, 'Now is the time to develop a programme of radical and fundamental policy change to ensure that the UK media system can better serve citizens and build robust institutions to withstand the changing media landscape.'
The Conference will be held at the Sultan Nazrin Shah Centre in Worcester College, Oxford, OX1 2JD between 10am and 6pm on Monday March 18th.
