Look Back, Face Forward 2003/2004
Osborne Clarke's fifth annual marketing law forum
Thursday 11 December 2003
1.30pm – 5.30pm
The Hatton, 51-53 Hatton Garden, London EC1N 8HN
The waiting is over. The date is now set for the Fifth Annual Osborne Clarke 'Look Back, Face Forward' Marketing Law Forum. Over the last four Decembers Osborne Clarke and Br@ndlegal have hosted hundreds of delegates from all quarters of the UK's marketing industry at what has now become the 'don't miss' event on the marketing conference circuit.
Each year at 'LBFF' we focus on the key marketing law cases and events of the year that is just coming to an end, and forecast what will be the big marketing law and regulation events in the year to come. We also conduct, before the event, a digital survey amongst delegates on 'hot button' marketing law regulation issues, and share the results of the survey with delegates on the day.
Last, but definitely not least, we feature a guest speaker to talk on a burning issue, and this year will be no exception. We are very pleased to report that at LBFF V, our keynote presenter is Sarah Thane, Advisor on Content and Standards at Ofcom.
Since 2001 Sarah has been Director of Programmes and Advertising at the Independent Television Commission and in May 2003 she was seconded to spend 50% of her time at Ofcom. Sarah is therefore uniquely placed to speak on mooted changes to the regulation of broadcast advertising in the UK once Ofcom assumes its powers in full in 2004.
