Smart Events and Webinars

A healthy, diverse, robust, innovative creative media community benefits everyone, and the WMG has a role to play in cultivating this.  Our Smart Event series focuses on critical conversations within the industry and the broader business world.  The addition of Webinars last year allowed us to reach a much wider geographical audience, attracting in excess of 2000 participants.

We are uniquely positioned to bring publisher perspectives together on behalf of the advertising community at these events, providing education and insight in a relaxed and informal environment.

The Media Navigators Podcast Series

Our podcast series eavesdrops on fascinating conversations between a diverse range of industry luminaries on topical issues that keep them up at night.
