Not your average marketing event


We’re beyond excited to announce the launch of Up North – our one day marketing festival taking place in Manchester on June 22nd 2023.

We’re bringing together leading marketers, inspirational thinkers, and entrepreneurs for one-of-a-kind event.

Across two stages, we’ll have 24 speakers, providing content on all things digital marketing, business strategy and personal development. Talks that will help you think bigger, work smarter and inspire you to get more from your marketing strategies.









Why Attend Up North 2023

Whether you’re a marketer at an established brand, or someone just starting out – the content is designed to help marketers of all levels improve not only their skills as practitioners but also as professionals.

If you want to network and learn with the leading marketers in the North of England, then this is the event you need to be at.

And the best part? It’s completely free.

What you’ll learn

The day has been built around the content that we think will truly add value to marketers of today. From actionable insights, to industry leaders sharing their stories on how they achieved career success.

From self-development talks around confidence and mental health, to talks from successful entrepreneurs. We wanted to create a line-up that not only helps you with your day-to-day, but inspires you for your next five years.

You can of course expect talks on digital marketing, SEO, Paid Media, Content, Digital PR and Data alongside of this. Hear from brands, agencies, freelancers and more on how they’ve utilised these channels to drive their digital performance. With top tips, takeaways and more, the event will leave you feeling refreshed ahead of returning to the office.

What makes us different?

Digital Marketing events happen across the country every day, and the variety offered in the market is more than ever before, so why should you spend a day with us?

Our team have attended 100s of marketing events, we’ve run conference and seminars for 50-1000+ people, and we felt there was a gap in the market for an event that not only informed, but inspired.

We chose to host this event in Manchester, as we are passionate believers in the value of uniting the digital community in the north. We have our second largest connective3 office here, have built our Digital Bites networking events here and felt that this city had to be the home for Up North.

Our Venue

With a vibrant and connected digital community, we felt that Manchester was the only location for us to host the first Up North, and Victoria Warehouse was simply the perfect venue for our inagural event.

Set a stone’s throw away from Old Trafford, the former cotton store features uniquely designed event spaces, perfect for a gathering of Northern marketers. Expect plenty of exposed brick and dramatic lighting – throw in a few stages and 400 digital marketers, and we’re sure to have one hell of a day.
