The 2020 Creative Cities Convention (CCC) saw its official launch last night at Scotland House in London, ahead of the upcoming event to be held at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow on 23-24th April 2020.
Launching the 2020 convention theme of ‘Going Global’, CCC director Ruth Pitt announced that Glasgow-based comedian Sanjeev Kohli will be joining Kirsty Wark to co-host the convention. Representatives from Pact, the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and STV were also in attendance.
“It’s been an incredible couple of years for producers and broadcasters across the UK,” said Wark. “The CCC helps delegates consider how to make the best of the opportunities and challenges that have come as a result of the strong growth of our production industry outside London.”
“There’s never been a better time for Glasgow to host the CCC and we look forward to welcoming hundreds of delegates to discuss and debate this immensely valuable sector,” added leader of Glasgow City Council, Cllr Susan Aitken.
Early-bird tickets are now available on the CCC website.
