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.”
