    Digital Marketing Events Up North 2022


    Digital Marketing is constantly evolving. Therefore, it is important to keep developing your skills, stay on top of the latest trends and ideas, and network with your peers.

    June 2022 Update: Whilst COVID put the brakes on many digital marketing events (or forced them online) over the past two years, it appears that relative normality might be slowly making a comeback. We still want to focus on Northern-based events in this event so won’t be listing any online-only events.
    We will keep this updated if and when new events get announced.

    Don’t feel like going to London? Whilst many of the largest events in Digital Marketing involve a trip to the capital, there are plenty of great opportunities up North.

    Here is a list of some of the top industry events coming up a little closer to home. As it is still early in the year, some events' exact dates and agendas are yet to be announced, as such, we will keep updating the list as and when we get details.
