There’s only one constant in the media world: Change. If you think you’ve figured out the way people are going to make content, pay for it, distribute and consume it, think again, because things move fast. All the time.
That’s why we produce Code Media each year. It’s a chance for the most interesting and powerful people in the media business to convene and share insights about what’s working, what isn’t and what’s next.
This immersive, two-day event, hosted by Recode Senior Editor Peter Kafka and Executive Editor Kara Swisher, will feature candid, insight-packed interviews from key figures in the media business and the technology world that’s disrupting it. At Code Media 2017, our attendees heard from Apple’s top media executive, Google’s revenue boss, the hottest movie producer in Hollywood and everyone in between.
Code Media also gives you the chance to get up close and personal with the people who can help you boost your company and your career, via structured breakout sessions and lots of casual networking time.
We pitch a big tent at Code Media: If you’re interested in making media, getting it in front of people or monetizing it — we’ve got good news. So are we. Let’s talk about it in 2018.

Media, Recording & Photography Policy
The Code Media stage is on the record for journalistic and editorial purposes. Journalists may quote anything the speakers and Executive Producers say onstage in stories or blog posts. Interviews that occur offstage in the hallways or at social gatherings are subject to whatever ground rules are agreed upon between parties at the time of the interview.
Still photos, taken from your seats, are OK. We ask that you do not use flash so as not to distract or annoy the speakers or others in attendance. Do not stand or crouch in the aisles or near the stage, as this interferes with our official show photographer, whose photos will be posted online for use by members of the media.
Finally, video and audio recordings are strictly prohibited, as we consider the audio and video content of our stage to be copyrighted. Similarly, while we respect fair-use reprinting of short text quotes, we do consider full transcripts of the conference to be our intellectual property.
This policy applies to all conference attendees.
