On The Edge Live presents our full-day Birmingham Marketing conference: “Driving change through innovation.”

An energetic full-day conference for experienced marketing professionals hearing from brilliant brands.

Continuing to expand our full-day conferences, we brought to you a day of innovation from 7 influential industry leaders. We packed you off with new insights, relevant case studies and inspiring hints to help improve your brand. You took advantage of our intimate peer-to-peer round tables and we hope you all enjoyed the complimentary networking drinks as much as we did. If you did not manage to stay, you missed out big time. #consumersausage

Thank you’s

As with any event, there is always a very long list of people that we should thank so here we go!

A massive thank you to our host, UK Marketing Network, our sponsors, CommuniGator, e3, Pitch,  OnlyMarketingJobs.com & Cambridge Marketing Colleges. An extra special thank you goes to our very own and ever entertaining, Simon Lewis of Edge Global Media Group, who did a great job.

A huge thanks goes to our speakers who, I’m sure we can all agree, made the day a real learning experience! They are here to help you further if you do have any questions so do not be afraid to get in touch.

We couldn’t host such an event without our fantastic delegates, thanks to all who attended.  Without you, there would be no conference and the day was such a success due to your great contributions to conversations, questions to speakers, twitter interaction and the day as a whole.

Thanks for coming & we hope you enjoyed it!
