"This one-day conference, organised by ippr in partnership with MediaGuardian, returns for its seventh year. The Oxford Media Convention 2009 will focus on convergence as senior government and industry figures come together and discuss current and forthcoming challenges and opportunities around media policy, strategy and regulation.

Seen by many as the industry-defining event, the Oxford Media Convention provides an important opportunity for senior figures from broadcasting, academia and regulatory bodies to think creatively about the regulatory framework we want to see develop to guarantee the success of our creative and media industries."

Keynote speakers include:

- Richard Allan, chair, Power of Information Task Force
- Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP, secretary of state for culture, media and sport
- Jon Gisby, director of New Media and Technology, Channel 4
- Jeremy Hunt MP, shadow secretary of state for culture, media and sport
