Fast-forward: Video 2019

If a picture speaks a thousand words, how many can a video shout? At Campaign’s upcoming breakfast briefing we look at one of the central pillars of today’s media and communications market.

Boasting a stage – and audience – packed with industry experts, the event will be a great place to meet and debate the issues and opportunities you are facing, while meeting old friends and new contacts and finding out how they are addressing them.
