How do I book my place on a session?


Make sure you check your schedule on the Festival App, as there might have been some last-minute changes to your agenda.

Please arrive on time for sessions to avoid disappointment. If you have reserved your space in a session, you must arrive no later than 5 minutes before to guarantee your place. We have a packed programme and we don’t want anyone to miss out.

You will still be able to book sessions while you’re onsite through the Festival App, but we recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you no longer wish to attend a particular session, please remember to remove it from your schedule so the place can become available to somebody else.

If you aren’t changing rooms between sessions, please have your app QR code ready on your phone and a member of the team will scan you in your seat.

Do I need to pre-book my place within sessions?


Yes, you MUST pre-book.

What happens if I want to attend a session which is already fully booked?


We would recommend that if a session is full, you select an alternative one to attend which still has seats available to be reserved.

What happens if I can no longer attend?


As per our terms and conditions, we do not offer refunds if you are no longer able to attend. However, you can transfer your ticket to someone else. If you wish to do this please get in touch with us at hello@festivalofmarketing.com.

Will presentation slides be circulated afterwards?


We realise that you can’t attend every session, so this year, courtesy of Marketing Week, we will be providing summaries of the stages. The best bits if you will.

After Festival we will share a link to the Marketer’s Toolkit, it will feature a selection of key session synopsis’s, quotes, practical takeaways, insight and analysis all curated by the Marketing Week team. This will be an invaluable resource to take the learnings from Festival and apply them to your day to day.

Is there a dress code?


There is no dress code at Festival however a couple of entrances to stages are via the courtyard so you may want to wrap up warm or bring an umbrella just in case!
