Metamorphosis - A Balanced Future For Media

Metamorphosis - A Balanced Future For Media

Metamorphosis is the first step in a concerted response to significant disruptions in the media industry that feel both inevitable and profoundly challenging.

WHY THIS CONFERENCE IS DIFFERENT
We're focused on discussing solutions - not just rehashing the ongoing issues with AdBlocking and Privacy issues

We're inviting people from all stakeholder groups: Advertisers, Publishers and Privacy Specialists - not just a vertical 1-sided conference

The outputs from the conference will be provided to a group of individuals, teams and startups to help the industry solve our very specific challenges.

At the Metamorphosis Conference we will have honest, informed, strategic exploration and evaluation of key market dynamics with balanced discourse between all key stakeholder groups and critical thought leadership focused on positive action.​
