What you can expect in Manchester at Prolific North’s Northern Marketing Festival

Northern Marketing Festival

Next month Prolific North will host a brand new event series – Northern Marketing Festival – to celebrate, connect and inspire the North’s ambitious marketing sectors.

Hosted across 24 to 27 June, Northern Marketing Festival has been created in response to industry demand and our belief that the North deserves its own platform to help showcase talent and innovation across the sector. 

And that’s exactly what we’ll be doing! With a variety of incredible speakers set to share their marketing insights and top tips, the festival will be hosted across three Northern cities starting off in Newcastle on 24 June, heading across the Pennines to Leeds on 25 June, then back to Manchester on 26 June.

So what can you expect in Manchester? The final – and biggest – day of the Northern Marketing Festival will be hosted at Manchester Hall on 26 June. The North West’s thriving creative and marketing communities will come together to share ideas during a jam-packed day with two tracks of content.
