Event Summary

1 in 14 jobs are in the creative industries, employing over 2.3 million people across the UK, fuelling our economy, culture and society*.

The Government’s recently published Creative Industries Sector Vision sets out plans to grow the creative industries by £50bn and support a million more jobs by 2030. 

We are delighted to give you advance notice of Westminster Insight’s new The Future of the Creative Industries UK Conference which will deep-dive into key areas of focus in the sector vision: building creative-clusters; developing a highly skilled, productive and inclusive workforce; and maximising the positive impact of the creative industries.

Join us to understand what is needed to meet targets set out in the new 2030 sector vision and strengthen the creative industries across the UK.

With expert input from creative leaders, we will explore key issues including diversity and inclusion in the creative workforce, strengthening ties between industry and key partners, and driving research and innovation. Learn from practical case studies which will share insights into building thriving creative clusters.

Gain insight on next steps for new technologies including AI. Strengthen your understanding of the role of technology in the creative industries and how to keep up to date with technological change.

How do we protect and harness the potential of intellectual property? Join us as we discuss the priorities for the UK’s intellectual property framework.
