If you missed out on the Cr8net 2011 conference, fret not at all, CIDA are proud to bring you Cr8net 2012! Cr8net 2012 will once again take place at the prestigious Royal Institution of Great Britain in Mayfair on 24th April 2012. We have designed the day specifically to suit senior managers, decisions makers, creative support agencies and strategic cultural organisations, academics, local government creative and cultural representatives and all those who aim to make a positive difference in the creative industries.

So what are we trying to achieve?

Well our master plan is simple really: create a platform, add leading players in the industry, throw in a few topical creative conundrums to fire the synapses, invite key industry leaders for challenging debates, stand well back and listen carefully. But that is far from all, one of our watchwords is ‘development’ and we expect each and every Cr8net attendee to gain from the event. Ideally, given time, these gains will cascade to the grassroots creative and cultural clients CIDA and other agencies support. CIDA’s first Cr8net conference was attended by creative industries practitioners including representatives from Tate Modern, Pinewood Studios, Arts Council England, Arts & Business, Crafts Council as well as several leading universities such as the University of the Arts London, Goldsmiths University, Kings College and the University of East London.Here’s what a few of the Cr8net 2011 delegates said:“…thanks for the really enjoyable conference last week…Proved a great forum for some tricky debates – much needed right now.”

Louise Venn, Consultant at Cultural Quarters.“I met some great people and it was particularly interesting to get the more personal inside track on Richard Florida’s ideas in his keynote.”

Mark McGuinness, coach for artists, creative’s and entrepreneurs. Cr8net tickets are only £195 if you book before 28th February 2012 – Just quote EB100 at the checkout and you’ll automatically get £100 off the ticket price!
