The LBS Technology and Media clubs are proud to present the upcoming Tech & Media Summit, an annual conference that explores the technology and media trends affecting each of us today.

Last year the Summit attracted over 200 attendees made up of students, alumni and industry professionals.  Panelists included experts from Spotify, WPP, Virgin Media, Warner Music, Songkick, The Economist, Google and Seedcamp.  This year’s conference will take place at the Bloomberg Centre, located in the City of London and just steps from London’s booming technology scene, aptly titled “Silicon Roundabout”.

The 2013 Summit is pleased to welcome its two keynote speakers: Joanna Shields, the CEO of the UK’s Tech City Investment Organization, as well as the former MD of EMEA at Facebook, and Mike Bracken, the UK government’s Director of Digital and former Head of Digital at The Guardian. In addition, the Summit will include four lively panels with numerous industry professionals, discussing the following topics:

  • “Creating a brand across multiple platforms, both online and offline”
  • “Show me the money – Making money from content”
  • “Consumer as curator – New sources of content creation”
  • “2023 Vision: Media & Tech”

With the importance of technology and media in the global job market, as well as the extent to which they are entwined in our daily lives, the committee expects another year of high attendance, enthusiasm, and of course, insightful discussion.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, February 1st and can be purchased through the organisation’s website, www.lbstechmediasummit.com. In addition, you can follow the Summit, its topics, and speakers on Twitter, @LBSTechMedia.
