The Creative Cities Convention is the leading annual meeting place for film, TV and digital content creators working outside London

We visit a different UK city each year, so wherever you’re based do join us to enjoy unmissable networking opportunities, informative sessions, top speakers, household names, commissioner speed-dates, policy-making and a fabulous party.


We will be announcing our location for April 2025 in the coming months so do watch this space!

Our last conference - Bristol 2024

On April 23-24 we visited the wonderful Bristol Beacon and enjoyed a record audience of almost 400 delegates from right across the UK. Our brilliant stakeholders (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Paramount and Pact) helped make possible an unbeatable line-up of senior leaders and we were delighted to welcome back our partners UKTV and Banijay UK.

We were delighted to be joined this year for the first time by YouTube, Netflix and Sky. We focused on new technologies, the power of drama, international deal-making, the future of factual and the freelance crisis that has been ravaging our industry of late. We didn’t have all the answers but there’s power in numbers and the conference offered people working in the screen sector outside London a chance to discuss the issues that really matter to them and to get to know one another at our now legendary evening networking party.

Thanks to all our 50 speakers, to our amazing delegates and to Bristol for making us so welcome.
