Events are officially back, and we couldn’t be more excited to be hosting our first ever event in Manchester. We’re joining forces with Don’t Panic to co-host the Marketing Mixer – an event for marketers working in the north (and beyond!).

Headquartered in Leeds, with a growing team in Manchester, we know just how great the northern digital community is. The north boasts some of the best agencies and marketers in the UK, but more often than not we have to travel to the south for events and networking.

That’s why, as a marketing team, it’s always been important to us to run events in the north. In our time we’ve hosted a lot of events in Leeds, ranging from small seminars to conferences for over 1000 people. Last year alone, we hosted 5 events to a total audience of over 500 people. With our Manchester team outgrowing their office in just a matter of months and the digital sector growing here at such rapid rate, we thought it was about time we hosted an event in this great city. And don’t worry, we’ll be back with more events in Leeds soon!

The panel

The interactive panel provides an opportunity to hear from marketers working in the northwest. Our panellists will be discussing the thriving digital sector, exploring why so many brands are successful in Manchester and neighbouring cities, and any challenges specific to brands based here. We’ll finish up looking towards the future and what we expect in the coming years for northern based brands.
