The Showcomotion Children's Media Conference is the only conference in the UK dedicated to children's television, film, radio and interactive media.

In 2004 people in the kids' media industry came together to organise the first Showcomotion Children's Media Conference. The idea was to create an annual meeting place that would explore all the new and future developments in kids' media and would also foster creative and business links through networking.

Since those inaugural two days in Sheffield the Conference has gone from strength to strength, with the third event in July 2006 attracting 300 delegates from across the children's media sector.

On one level, the conference looks at business by focusing on programme funding, commissions & co-productions, regulation, merchandising, channel developments. But the conference does more than that: with its key emphasis on looking forward into the future and examining how kids' media will fare in the face of changes in both technology and the lives of children.
