What people said about last year's conference:
‘Thanks for a great day - this ranks in the top ten of any industry networking event I have attended over the past 20 years. Excellent profile and mixture of attendees and presentations, and discussion at internet speed - vibrant and engaging...’
Martin Davis, CEO, Mobiya
‘I came away with ideas to activate immediately, relationships which I know I can work with in the future and a ready-made support network of brilliant individuals I can share and work with. I’ve never attended a one-day event of this kind of value.’
David Cushman, Network Engagement Director, Emap

We aim to make this year's conference even better.
