BEYOND Conference has announced its 7th annual conference, Creative Cities, will be hosted at Salford’s MediaCity on November from Monday 25 to Wednesday 27 November 2024.

BEYOND is the annual conference for R&D and innovation in the creative industries. It brings together thinkers, makers, investors and researchers from across the creative industries to explore the relationship between creative research and business innovation.

This year’s conference will be hosted in ‘the creative powerhouse of Greater Manchester’, to explore the innovative potential of creative cities. The conference will delve into how growing creative industries in city regions like Greater Manchester, will unlock greater and fairer economic growth, and make urban centres better places to live and work.
