Urbano Communities

Urbano Media

Urbano Media is a network which connects together those in TV, film, animation, advertising, publishing and other media.

We have seen the diaspora of talent working in all forms of old and new media move from Soho to Shoreditch and back again, and now forming new creative hubs in London Bridge, King's Cross, and at other points of the London business compass.

Urbano Media aims to showcase and those who are setting new standards in the sector and bring together diverse companies - and those that run them - to build alliances, seek new work, and help each other understand the shape of the future for this fast-moving and important UK sector.

Mark Goodier on Urbano Media
"I found speaking at the Urbano event a very positive experience. Mark Herring is a remarkable speaker and he immediately set up a very positive atmosphere in the room and focussed the audience. I had very positive feedback both during and after my talk and would not hesitate to do it again. Mark is also clearly a remarkable networker and to be honest I’d strongly recommend attending pretty much any of his Urbano events".
