Anna Home, Conference chair, said: “Our theme for 2013 is ‘Are we there yet?’ Here we will take stock of the innovation in funding, making, distributing and consuming content over the last decade and we’ll look at where kids’ media is going and, in this world of constant change, if there is indeed a destination to get to.”
