Entertaining the world, employing nearly 30 million people and generating global revenues of more than $2 trillion, the creative and cultural industries are a shining star in the world of business.
If the predictions about the huge changes in our working lives are correct, the creative sector can only grow, providing more entertainment, information and education to content-hungry people spending less time at work.
How can creative businesses better work together for mutual benefit? How can your business more effectively export culture and creativity? With artificial intelligence threatening so many jobs, is this one of the few sectors where workers can really add inimitable value?
The 2018 International Business Festival’s Creative Industries Day will focus on new technologies and ask if gamers, artists and traditional programme makers can forge new relationships. And we will look at demographic change and the business case for diversity in the creative industries.
We’ll explore how to find stability and opportunity in a changing world and showcase international market opportunities. You’ll meet with future partners, buyers and investors and develop profitable, meaningful relationships.
