Festival of Marketing

The Festival of Marketing is a large-scale industry annual festival, which has been held at Tobacco Dock since 2013.

The event organisers enjoy working here as the layout suits their event so well. While the Quayside level spaces work well for content and stage sessions, the Vaults level areas are great for their sponsors to create their own interactive experience rooms. Additionally, the scale of our larger spaces in the Great and Little Galleries means that they are able to conduct talks for very large audiences. With so many common spaces, such as the walkways and bandstands, there’s ample opportunity for smaller mingles and catering points.

As well as spaces with varying capacities, it was also necessary to be able to provide areas which would easily and rapidly adapt to different uses. For example, the Great Gallery was used for their awards ceremony on Wednesday evening, transforming into the conference main stage for the following two days.

Our stripped back and striking interiors provide the perfect backdrop to imaginative branding which was used to great effect across the event.

The Festival of Marketing team were delighted with the collaboration of the sales, operations and facilities teams in producing their event. Building upon the past Festivals held here at Tobacco Dock and using their wealth of experience in working within the building, our team was able to ensure the entire event ran like a well-oiled machine.
