Launching Prolific North Live 2017: Bigger and better


Prolific North Live is back – and it’s going to be even bigger and better.

After a hugely successful inaugural event in February, the leading media, marketing and creative industries expo outside of London will expand to a packed programme over not one but two days, February 15th and 16th 2017.

We are delighted to announce that two Event Partners – Steamhaus and Vision One – have already signed up, as well as two room sponsors: Parker Software (the Storytelling Theatre) and Smoking Gun PR (The Marketing Suite).

Extensive polling of the companies and organisations that exhibited on the day gave the event an average score of 8 out of 10 – an unusually high mark for a brand new event.

Prolific North Live ’17 will look to retain everything that made the first expo such a success, but expand it significantly to allow for more exhibitors, keynotes, talks, workshops and other sessions – as well as an improved experience for attendees, with numerous networking, coffee and food areas on site.
