'The whole media world is there'. This is how the former Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, described the OMC, which over more than a decade has established itself as a key event in the media industry calendar.
OMC 2013 will be taking place after a tumultuous year for the media, including the Leveson Inquiry and the crisis at the BBC. From issues of regulation and ownership, to convergence and copyright, the media industry is at an important crossroads.
OMC 2013 will bring together leading politicians and policy makers, industry leaders and practitioners, analysts and competitors from broadcast, print, on-line and new technology.
Keynote speeches from Ed Vaizey MP, minister for culture, communications and creative industries and Harriet Harman MP, shadow secretary of state for culture, media and sport.
