With a flurry of bookings over the past 10 days, we're pleased to announce that over 50 companies and organisations have now signed up to exhibit at and partner with ProlificNorthLive, the biggest ever media, marketing and creative industries expo to be staged outside London.

Industry average figures for expos is that typically around 50% of space is booked in the final three months before the event. Given the level of bookings that PNL is experiencing, this highlights the substantial and extremely high level of goodwill and interest being shown towards PNL by the creative sector in the North - and beyond.

And with over 80 exhibitors and 3,000 plus visitors including hundreds of brands during the course of the day, PNL is shaping up to be by some distance the most significant and diverse gathering of senior creative, media and marketing industries personnel ever assembled in the UK regions.

In the last ten days, the following have signed up:

We also have two Event Partners in Smoking Gun PR and mclcreate and we will be announcing the third of our fourth Event Partners on Monday 19 October.

A full list of exhibitors who have signed up can be found here and to find out more about how your business or organisation can get involved as an exhibitor or sponsor, contact Dunstan at

Running alongside the exhibition will be a number of complementary interactive sessions ranging from tech demos and venture funding pitches (sponsored by Baker Tilly) to seminars exploring current issues and trends in marketing, broadcasting, content and innovation.

There'll also be a 100-seat mobile cinema featuring a variety of sessions and showcasing some of the North's best animation and VFX.

Due to levels of demand, we have also taken two further seminar rooms at the venue.

In the second and third rooms, a further 30+ speakers will cover best practice, emerging technologies and a number of other highly relevant media and marketing topics.

Further and full details about the seminar speakers and sessions will be revealed at the end of October and throughout November.

Several hundred people have already registered to attend PNL and you can join them by clicking here.
