Event Goals 

01 To bring you a diverse line up of quality speakers who can give you real examples of how to use digital marketing.

02 To help you ask the hard questions about your invested time and efforts against your results, or if that is the right question for you.

03 To help you measure the effectiveness of social media, digital marketing and direct contact methods.

04 To ensure that you make the best possible use of your time when engaging with digital methods.

05 To provide you with an enjoyable day which will add real value to your business .


Our speakers have been carefully chosen to bring you the widest possible variety of content, knowledge and practical techniques to take away from the day. Offering real examples, they will show you how to make the time you invest be worthwhile and productive. With the increasing amount of activity across the various forms of social media, FREE is no longer what it was. The time you invest in marketing in this way can often be more costly than the returns you are likely to achieve, more worryingly from our research many business owners fail to measure the full time cost of marketing through digital means. 

Our event is designed to make you ask the hard questions about your invested time and efforts in comparison to your results. Through combined use of social media & digital marketing you can influence your customers and get tangible results, find out how by attending.

Right from the start our focus is on your individual experience starting with a VIP breakfast (VIP Ticket Holders only) with the available speakers.  Shortly after registration our welcome address will take place followed by our Keynote Speaker the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne. 

Katy will be sharing the challenges and opportunities that elected representatives face in an increasingly digital society. This will give you an insight as to how effective communication can be created and managed correctly.

You will be able to participate in an open forum to create a thought provoking atmosphere which will help you approach all of the subsequent presentations in a questioning frame of mind.  In addition to the published speakers we have assembled a panel of FOR and AGAINST individuals to openly debate the pros and cons of digital marketing, in particular social platforms. VIP ticket holders will be invited to submit questions in advance for consideration in the forum.

From this point on the audience will be assigned into 3 more intimate groups so that it is possible for you to interact in more depth with each of the speakers.  This will give you a far more involved day and create more useful question and answer sessions. It also means that there will be no lengthy delays at the UNLIMITED FREE tea and coffee station or when you enter the restaurant for your 3 course lunch.
