ERA will be supporting The Future of Media Conference 2014 on 10 July to be held at the University of Salford, MCUK alongside The Institute of Telecommunications Professionals and others.
The Future of Media Conference 2014 will provide delegates with the opportunity to discuss and debate the changing face of UK local,regional and national media. Experts from the sector will provide a detailed exposition and lively critical examination of leading edge issues in digital media and their potential consequences in a raft of areas, such as technology, content sourcing, production, narrowband broadcasting, and evolving relationships with audiences and consumers.
