More event partners and agenda revealed for Northern Marketing Festival 2024

Northern Marketing Festival

Want to hear from Northern brands from the likes of Greggs, Newcastle United, Betty’s & Taylor’s of Harrogate plus a whole range of unmissable marketing content across three Northern cities? Look no further than Prolific North’s inaugural Northern Marketing Festival!

Hosted across Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle from 24 to 27 June 2024, the Northern Marketing Festival is an exciting new event series designed to celebrate and connect the North’s vibrant marketing community.

Content production agency Powerhouse is one of the latest event partners on board for the festival and will be speaking at the Leeds event. Neil Adams, CEO of Powerhouse, said: “As an agency proud of our Northern roots, it’s an absolute privilege to be part of Prolific North’s first-ever Marketing Festival. For years, we’ve felt the absence of a platform that celebrates the authentic creativity and ingenuity defining our Northern marketing landscape. Finally, it’s here.”

We’re looking forward to hearing and drawing inspiration from our fellow speakers, and joining in the conversation too.”

“Personally, we view this festival as a chance to inspire both established and emerging marketing talent about the content production industry. Often perceived as transactional, we really want to showcase what’s possible when taking a more strategic approach and embracing fresh approaches to work.”

Powerhouse joins Drummond Central, Ponderosa, Spark Market Research, Impression and MFuse as the festival’s latest event partners.

So what’s happening across the festival? We’ll be kicking the week off in Newcastle at The Catalyst on 24 June, shining a spotlight on the ambitious work emerging from the region and delve into plans to foster innovation and opportunities for growth in the North East.

Expect to hear from the nation’s favourite bakery brand Greggs, a session with festival headline partner Embryo on the role of paid media in your marketing strategy, plus explore Newcastle United’s strategy to become a world class brand and how its branding the North East as a destination and so much more.

With more exciting updates to be revealed soon, each event is ticketed separately so make sure you check out everything planned for the day so far and book your tickets to the Newcastle event here.
