MaKi London

Business Media Conference

11 & 12 June, 2019

By overwhelming popular demand we returned to London, and filled two days with media panels bursting with familiar media faces and lots of fresh journalist contacts.

The 2019 MaKi event took place at the Cass Business School in the heart of the financial district, and as always the media sessions were filled with editors and journalists from the FT, WSJ, The Economist, Bloomberg, BBC, Forbes, Times of London, The Guardian, The Independent, Times Higher Ed, Quartz, Business Insider and many more.
