A View of the Sector’s Future from the Summit

6-8 March 2024: London & Online

The Big Creative UK Summit introduces you to the sharpest minds and trailblazers with ideas that will shape our future. Together, we will explore how our sector is empowered by changes imposed on us – from the introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to demands for new skills – to drive the systemic transformation we are all striving for.

Our focus for this year’s Summit brings together perspectives across technology, creative investment and the future of skills. Conversations will deliberate how, with the right balance of these, our creative economy can continue to be a remarkable ‘super-charged’ driver of UK economic growth.

Hear from industry leaders, politicians, thought pioneers, emerging talent and organisations when we convene to embrace and tackle the critical issues facing our world-leading Creative Industries, so we can reimagine its future. We welcome hosts BBC Broadcaster Tina Daheley, for the in-person Summit, and beatboxing sensation KIMMYBEATBOX for the Virtual Co:Labs! Announced speakers include Rt Hon Lucy Frazer KC MP, Jude Kelly CBE, Daanish Masood Alavi, with many more to come.
