Mad // Fest arms

The MAD// Fest arms is the space at the festival where you can meet buyers, discover innovative suppliers, make friends, exchange ideas, try new things and uncover new talent all in the comfortable surroundings of our pop-up East End pub.

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.

Greengame - The UK’s most measurably daring start-up!

In 2018, we teamed up with Dentsu Aegis Network-owned agency Fetch to kick-start a search for the UK’s most Measurably Daring start-up. 100s entered, 15 were selected to pitch at MAD//Fest, sustainable living tech business Greengame walked away with the coveted Measurably Daring award and a unique opportunity to grow alongside Fetch.


The opposite of networking is not working!

At MAD//Fest, we pride ourselves on creating an informal, fun and sociable meeting space in the form of our pop-up pub, The MAD//Fest Arms. So grab a drink, chat to the leading players in marketing, media and tech, and have fun forming the relationships that will lead to future opportunities.
