Marketing conference for Spinningfields

Marketing professionals are invited to Hubbub 2010 – a major new conference to be held in Manchester in October

Published on September 2nd 2010.


Marketing conference for Spinningfields

If the terms 'viral marketing', 'brand activation' and 'experiential marketing' are part of your everyday vocabulary, you will be very interested in a major new conference that's being held in Spinningfields this autumn.

“Hubbub delegates will get to engage with industry practitioners that both talk the talk and walk the walk, and learn about the latest developments and thinking from some of the best professionals currently operating.”

If they're not, and you work in media, marketing or the creative industries, you ought to be interested in it anyway. This conference will get you up-to-speed on the new marketing strategies that are setting leading businesses apart from the rest.

Hubbub 2010 is a two day conference that will bring international thought leaders from the marketing sector to Spinningfields on 13 and 14 October. Conference sessions will cover key issues including the future of marketing, business to business marketing, experiential marketing and social media for business, with each session including a key note speech, presentation and panel debate.

There will also be an exhibition, which is free to attend, featuring stands and fringe workshops from companies working across a range of marketing sectors.

Ralph Ardill, the founder and CEO of the Brand Experience Consultancy, is one of the top level speakers appearing at the conference. Ralph was responsible for a series of ground-breaking experiential programmes for brands including Coca-Cola, Tate Modern and Transport for London. (If you're not entirely sure what experiential marketing is, you'd better go along to his session to find out.)

Other key note speakers include 'media futurist' Gerd Leonhard. This guy has advised companies such as Nokia, Google, Sony and The Financial Times, and has written several influential books on the future of media. His speeches are reported to be well worth hearing – hard-hitting, provocative and inspiring.

Although the conference stretches over two days, delegates don't have to sign up for the full programme. You can just attend the session most relevant to your business.

Each half day session costs £180+VAT – if you book before 30 September, you save 25%, and if you book for more than one person you make further savings. You would normally have to travel to London to hear speakers of this calibre so you're making another saving on travel expenses.

Those who don't have time to attend a session are advised to drop into the free exhibition. It's an opportunity to network, pick up valuable knowledge in the workshops, and meet suppliers who may be of use to your business.

Clare Tams, Hubbub’s marketing manager, said of the conference: “Today a discussion about any aspect of marketing, advertising and communications has to reflect the views and experiences of people who are at the cutting edge of the industry and are delivering successful campaigns on a national and international basis right here, right now.

“Hubbub delegates will get to engage with industry practitioners and learn about the latest developments, thinking and opinions from some of the best brand, B2B, events and communications marketing professionals currently operating.”

If communications is your field, make sure you're there.

Hubbub takes place at Spinningfields, Manchester city centre on 13-14 October. To see the full conference programme and book tickets, visit the Hubbub website www.hubbub.co.uk. To get your 25% discount, quote 'HUBMC' and book before 30 September 2010.
