The festival, which had its inaugural year in 2013, attracted 4000 marketers to thought-leading sessions from brands including Microsoft, Virgin, 02, Vine, Channel 4, British Gas, Ford, Dell and many more. It brought together many partners from ISBA to The Marketing Society to host a range of fringe events across London.
The Festival of Marketing returns on 12-13 November 2014 and this year will be held in quirky Tobacco Dock in the heart of East London. The space at Tobacco Dock means that the festival and all the buzz, excitement from the conference programme and its partners will now be presented all in one venue.
The speaker line-up for 2014 already includes speakers from brands such as Lego, ITV, Universal Pictures, Barclays, Ryanair and many, many more. You can find out more and book your place here.
