Festival of Marketing

The Festival of Marketing is a unique experience where ambitious marketers can discover, learn, celebrate and shape the future together. As the largest global event dedicated to brand marketers, the Festival reflects the very nature of marketing – seamlessly blending inspiration and practical application.

Held at London’s Tobacco Dock on 10-11 October 2019, the Festival is THE place for marketing professionals to experience everything they need to find success.

With 12 stages covering everything from AI to customer experience, this year’s programme delivered an unrivalled line-up of 250+ hard-to-reach CMOs, industry pioneers and digital specialists at the top of their field, they all come together to share the secrets of their success. Among them, the Festival brings together an all-star line-up on the Headline Stage which for 2018 saw the likes of Dr Pixie McKenna, Gabby Logan, Kem Cetinay and Rebecca Holman sitting on a panel discussing mental health and the ways in which we can raise awareness and change perceptions around mental health. Louis Theroux, Filmmaker and Broadcaster, closed day 1 with insights into how to ask the most difficult of questions and actually walk away with some answers.

On Day 2, Sir Martin Sorrell, Executive Chairman – S4 Capital, opened the Festival before Carolyn McCall DBE, CEO – ITV took to the stage to share insights gained from an illustrious career leading organisations such as The Guardian, EasyJet and ITV.

Last but by no means least, Marketing Week’s star columnist Mark Ritson and Facebook’s Vice President for Northern Europe, Steve Hatch posed a series of questions to each other addressing the current marketing landscape and the future of comms.

Expect two jam-packed days of content, experience rooms, workshops and interactive activations: this is so much more than just another conference or exhibition, the Festival is an immersive marketing experience – “the Glasto of marketing events!” as one attendee previously described it.

So, what are you waiting for? Prepare to join more than 4,000 marketers guaranteed to walk away with knowledge, insight and know how to supercharge your marketing strategy. Register your interest to be informed of when early bird tickets become available for 2019.
