Fergus Campbell, Head of Communications for classified ads site Gumtree, will join the News Generation panel hosted by 72point at Marketing Show North - the biggest marketing exhibition of its type outside London.

The panel discussion will take place on day two of the event in the keynote theatre. It will be moderated by 72point MD Chris Pharo, and feature a host of industry leaders including Jane Hamilton, Native Advertising and Journalism Expert; Richard Moriarty from The Sun; and Scott Fisher, Scribe PR Creative Director.

Campbell has previously spoken at eCommerce Show North, which took place in November 2018. He has spent 14 years working in communications and marketing roles for a variety of brands and businesses in the UK and abroad. At Gumtree, he rebuts misconceptions about the brand and builds the business's reputation within the UK.

Marketing Show North brings industry leaders together to network and learn from one another, across two days at EventCity in Manchester. This year, it takes place on February 27th and 28th, and has UKFast as its lead with Channel 4 and Maru/Blue as event sponsors.

Previously known as Prolific North Live, Marketing Show North is set to provide delegates with experience and learning in subjects including - but not limited to - digital innovation, marketing platforms and technologies, sales innovation, AR, VR and MR, branding, communications and PR, printing innovation, broadcast and visual content, advertising and media.

As well as a selection of industry leaders speaking across the event, delegates will be able to meet a range of exhibitors from across the sector - whether their specialism is within or interacts with the creative and marketing industries.
