The Creative Cities Convention could not happen without support from our partners, they are our friends and we really value the many different kinds of friendships it takes to make the convention a success.

By becoming a partner of this exciting event businesses will have a unique opportunity to increase their brand awareness and visibility within the industry, as well as build new partnerships with industry leaders.


Why partner and be friends with the Creative Cities Convention?

  • The convention is unique, each year it moves to a different city and won’t come to Cardiff again
  • Our delegates are senior broadcast decision makers, a wide range of creative and business leaders from independent production companies, local and national journalists and students.
  • The convention offers partnerships that make a difference; increased brand awareness, a networking opportunity and a chance to cement your reputation in the field by association with our convention.

The whole team would like to thank each and every one of  our partners, diolch yn fawr.


Our stakeholders are our management board and provide advice, direction and financial support.
