Mediaweek is excited to announce the major partners and sponsors of the Mediaweek 100 industry lunch which will be held on Friday, October 13 at The Crown’s Pearl Ballroom in Sydney. The event will once again bring the most influential people in the business together under one roof.
The major partners of the event will be Nine, Think News Brands, News Corp Australia, and Think TV. The event’s sponsors will be ARN, Sound Story, TrinityP3, Kinesso, and Fetch Ads.
The three power lists from last year will all be returning. The Mediaweek 100 will name the most powerful people in the media industry, the Media Agency 50 will highlight the biggest players in the media agency leadership, and the Star Power 25 will turn the spotlight on the best of TV and audio talent. A new list will also be celebrated at the event, The Creative Agency 50.
Liana Dubois, Nine’s chief marketing officer said: “The Mediaweek 100 showcases the vibrancy and depth of talent of our leaders across the Australian media landscape. With Nine’s platforms spanning television, publishing, audio, streaming, and marketplaces, we are proud to support and celebrate the people that make our industry so dynamic. We hope to help inspire the next generation of media leaders to continue growing the media sector and using its influence to positively benefit society.”
Lou Barrett, News Corp Australia’s managing director of national sales said: “Our association with the Mediaweek 100 Industry Lunch reinforces our dedication to being at the forefront of industry developments and collaborating with like-minded organizations. As we come together under one roof, we are not just celebrating success, but also fostering connections and synergies that will drive the future of media. News Corp Australia is proud to be a part of this prestigious event, and we look forward to the meaningful discussions, partnerships, and insights that will undoubtedly emerge from this gathering of leaders.”
Vanessa Lyons, CEO of ThinkNewsBrands said: “ThinkNewsBrands support of the Mediaweek 100 is fuelled by our united dedication to celebrate and salute the exceptional talent and trailblazing achievements that permeate our industry. Regardless of our channel, sector, or area of focus – unity on such milestones is important”.
Danielle McWilliam, head of CX, ThinkTV said: “Australian broadcasters have the ability to make, shape and change culture, contributing to a diverse, sustainable, socially conscious and mentally healthy future. ThinkTV is proud to partner with Mediaweek 100 as it provides an opportunity to celebrate the work and achievements of the best in the industry. More importantly, those on the Mediaweek 100 list represent thousands of people across the broader industry who do incredible things every day to reach, entertain, inform, celebrate, and make a genuine difference for Australians.”
The media industry is ever-changing and rapidly evolving, and there have been countless job movements and power shifts in the months since the inaugural event. Last year saw Mike Sneesby, Peter Horgan, and Kyle and Jackie O come out on top. Will that still be the case in 2023?
The 2022 event marked the first time Mediaweek had put on an in-person event, working with industry-leading event company, Usual Suspects, who return to work their magic in 2023.
