Commissioning more homegrown programmes and casting contributors from different parts of the country are a priority for Fiona and she will discuss how she’s collaborating with digital teams to deliver content that cuts through for young audiences.

Announcing the first tranche of names in the 2020 convention line-up, director Ruth Pitt said “We’re delighted that once again some of the industry’s biggest players are joining us to discuss and celebrate the fantastic growth of media production outside London.”

CREATIVE CITIES CONVENTION GOES GLOBAL IN 2020 Posted: 25/10/2019
CREATIVE CITIES CONVENTION GOES GLOBAL IN 2020

After two successful years, the Creative Cities Convention (CCC) will scale up its ambitions in year three by looking at the global growth of production outside London when it convenes in Glasgow on 23 – 24 April 2020.

As a creative media event designed specifically for content producers working across the country, the convention visits a different UK city each year. Following a fiercely competitive ‘Big City Challenge’ bid process, the City of Glasgow will welcome delegates to its Royal Concert Hall.

With one of the biggest production sectors outside London, Glasgow is a popular choice. For the third year running, top broadcaster and Newsnight journalist Kirsty Wark will host, with household names Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer opening the conference. “I’m delighted that Phil and I will be speaking at the Creative Cities Convention in Glasgow next April,” Allsopp said. “The conference is rapidly becoming the go to event for anyone producing content outside of London. We are proud to add our voices to the many key players who will be attending next year.”
