People can meet creatives, technologists, producers and strategy minds for a drink and a chat, test prototypes, listen to lectures, explore workplaces and start new relationships.

Visitors can expect to mingle with other conference attendees and some heavy hitters from Web Directions’ speaker roster that includes renowned hand lettering artist Jessica Hische, long-time Twitter creative director Douglas Bowman and Internet of Things entrepreneur Matt Webb.

Web Directions co-founder John Allsopp says: “Our event has always been about dialogue between lots of digital and also non-digital disciplines. I am glad Creative Social teamed up with us and is opening up all these top notch agencies for an afternoon.”
