Mad // Fest arms

Working in marketing, advertising and innovation should be fun. So forget the boring identikit trade show, embrace the theme and join the only event where the ‘expo’ is a fully kitted out boozer packed with like-minded people, a pop-up pub, amazing street food, DJs, craft beer and an experience that makes you feel more connected with your profession and peers.
