The Year Ahead - in video, pictures and quotes
The Year Ahead 2015, hosted at The Waldorf Hilton hotel, London
Wednesday saw almost 200 senior professionals from across the media industry gather at London's Waldorf Hilton hotel to discuss some of the biggest trends for 2015.
Sitting on a panel chaired by MediaTel's MD Derek Jones, the BBC's former media correspondent, Torin Douglas, media journalist Raymond Snoddy, and Pippa Glucklich, co-CEO at Starcom MediaVest Group, debated what the coming year has in store for the industry, as well as reviewing 2014's main media highlights.
The event also heard from a host of top media names, including Karmarama's Jon Wilkins, ISBA's Bob Wootton, BBC's Margo Swadley, Fetch's Greg Grimmer and Sharp End's Michael Bayler, amongst many others, as everything from the impact of the general election on the media industry, to the future of media agencies was debated.
The event, in partnership with RadiumOne, was under Chatham House Rule, so Newsline is unable to report directly on the conversations, however we can reveal the panel's personal choices for media personality of 2014, along with their top media brand and favourite media moment of last year.
We also have three video interviews, below, with Pippa, Torin and Ray as they share their thoughts on the year ahead.
