Marketing Events – Striving For Best

by alex, added 4 months ago

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a big difference in the variety and regularity of great marketing and design events in the North – we really are seeing a shift to strive to be the best in industry, rather than follow or imitate, or have to go to London events to get access to top industry speakers or expertise. We’ve been scouring the net to bring you some of the top socials and events over the next couple of months. Take a look at our pick below!

All in. Leeds. Summer Social

It’s not a complex formula – it’s drinks in the pub for the All in. Leeds community.

It’s not about business cards, pitches, awkward handshakes or fake smiles. This is about a bunch of good people from across the creative sector in Leeds in one place, without an agenda and mostly with a drink in their hand. So put your deck away mate. Grab yourself a drink and have a good time.

They’ll also have some very special guests spinning tunes throughout the night, with live music, DJs, hot dogs (vegan and meat) and an outside terrace should the sun decide to shine. The only rules? Get ready to channel your inner Blondie or B*Witched, New Order or NSYNC and dress to impress!
