Mediacontact.ie started the Media Future conference as an event to help people to understand, and learn, about all of the amazing changes that were happening in the media.
The object of Media Future is to paint a picture of the future for disciplines like journalism, advertising, marketing, public relations and technology.
It has grown from a small event to an international conference that is attended by over 400 delegates.
Most importantly the Media Future audience is made up of 10,000 people who work as journalists, communicators, marketers, and web developers who work in Ireland. It is also made up of a global audience on Twitter where there is a potential audience of millions.
In 2010, 2011 and 2012 the conference hashtag was trending in Ireland for the duration of the conference.
Media Future is produced by Mediacontact.ie - Ireland's leading media intelligence agency.
Our aim is to connect you with your targeted media, get them interested in your organisation and help you to build a presence in the media for your business, project or campaign.
Our products and services include: Media HQ - the complete online press office, the Irish Media Contacts Directory - the printed book of media contacts and ChannelOne - media conferences and training.
