Beyond

MISSION

Now in its fourth year we created the BEYOND conference as a forum to explore the research and innovation at the heart of the creative industries, also showcasing the work of the multi-million pound Creative Industries Clusters and Audience of the Future R&D programmes. 

Each year our team have brought together researchers, thinkers and policymakers, businesses and funders to ask big questions about the future of the creative industries, and showcase their work. 

Our work

Since 2018 the team has curated a diverse programme of international speakers, run an Early Career Researcher poster exhibition, and an innovation showcase plus networking.

We organise end-to-end logistics from ticketing to venue hire, AV, catering, travel – you name it. We get BEYOND noticed through clever marketing and communications campaigns, and provide on demand content post-event.
