Returning for its second year after a smashing debut in 2023. Shining a spotlight on the North’s most exciting new and growing agencies…

We’ll be revealing the results of this year’s research at an exclusive event in Manchester on 19th September, featuring some lively panel sessions from agency leaders. They’ll be sharing their journeys of growing a successful agency, the set backs and successes that come with it and of course the lessons learnt.

We’ll also be addressing the challenges and opportunities more widely for the agency sector after an unsettled few years. Plus, chatting all about what makes the North such a brilliant place to be creative!

Stay tuned for some exciting speaker updates coming soon…

Tickets will be limited, so you can snap yours up today below!
