The Festival of Marketing set for October return

Mark Ritson confirmed for the 10th anniversary of the Festival. He will join CMOs and other speakers from the world of marketing and beyond on 5 October.

Marketing Week’s Festival of Marketing is set to return in October, featuring top speakers from the world of marketing and beyond on subjects that will help you face the challenges in your job and career.

Taking place at The Brewery in London on 5 October, confirmed speakers include Marketing Week’s own Mark Ritson, who will be delivering his colourful take on the state of marketing.

He will be joined by top marketers including Domino’s CMO Sarah Brown, Co-op’s chief membership & customer officer Kenyatte Nelson and Wickes’ chief digital and marketing officer Gary Kibble.

Across several stages, the biggest issues in marketing effectiveness, growth and customer delivery will be tackled.

We will also look at how marketing can set the agenda on topics such as sustainability and diversity and inclusion, and explore some of the key economic, cultural and technological trends.

Elsewhere, we will debate some of the hottest topics in marketing and deliver practical advice on everyday challenges in a series of masterclasses.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Festival of Marketing, which has seen speakers as varied as Stephen Fry, Louis Theroux and former Tesco CEO Dave Lewis take the stage. It has also hosted debates including the “battling professors” showdown of 2017, which saw Ritson take on Byron Sharp.

Russell Parsons, editor-in-chief of Marketing Week and Festival of Marketing, says: “Through a variety of formats and speakers, the Festival is designed to help you do your job better. By showcasing best practice and challenging received wisdom we hope to offer you the insight and inspiration that will help you do your job that little bit better.”

More speakers will be announced alongside more on stages and subjects over the coming weeks
