Chemistry, serendipity, poetry in motion - call it what you like, but one of the most powerful things an event can do is bring people together with different expertise to address a specific challenge and be the trigger moment for a successful working relationship.

Unfortunately, matching the right solutions with the right briefs at large international events can feel like trying to find a needle in the haystack for clients and vendors alike. 

Meet//Market@MAD//Fest London is here to take the luck out of matchmaking and enable brand marketers to find the most relevant innovation, solutions and partners. Taking place at MAD//Fest London on 5 and 6 July at The Old Truman Brewery, Meet//Market is a new invite-only service for just 75 top brand marketers who want to get more out of their visit to MAD//Fest by seeing their issues, challenges and business priorities addressed by relevant tech and service providers.

Prior to the event, brand leaders on the Meet//Market programme will be matched with relevant suppliers. Where there is a good match, MAD//Fest will organise a one-to-one meeting on the morning of 5 or 6 July.

Meet//Market attendees also get a host of additional benefits including:

  • Dishoom networking breakfast on 5 and 6 July
  • Personalised schedule
  • Access to VIP roof terrace including refreshments
  • Exclusive content sessions
  • Concierge service including speedy registration and reserved seating
  • 2x tickets to the MAD//Carnival on 7 July feat. DJ Norman Jay MBE
  • Tickets to the Alliance of Independent Agencies Awards (5 July) and Marketing Society Awards (6 July)

“The experience of attending large industry events can be a little overwhelming for even the most seasoned networkers, let alone those who are feeling a little rusty since the pandemic. We want the MAD//Fest experience to be as enjoyable, productive and engaging as possible, so what better way than to launch a personalised programme for marketers who want to get more from the time they spend out of the office? Meet//Market helps to tip the odds of success in the favour of innovation-hungry marketers and suppliers who can show not just what their tech can do, but what it can do to address specific challenges brands are facing right now,” said Dan Brain, MAD//Fest London’s Co-founder.

Following the success of last summer’s in-person return of MAD//Fest, over 7,500 marketers are expected to attend this year’s three day ‘No Guts, No Glory’-themed festival. Speakers include Rachel Waller, Global VP Innovation, Burberry, Cristina Diezhandino, Global CMO, Diageo, Tina Koehler, Global VP Marketing, Deliveroo, Kathryn Swallow, Global VP - Rexona, Unilever, Sir Martin Sorrell, Founder & CEO, S4 Capital, Rory Sutherland, Vice-chair, Ogilvy, and Susan Hoffman, ECD, W+K.
