What does a Festival of Marketing Pass include?

Your pass includes access to both days of the Festival, including all of the content over the two days, entrance to the Master of Marketing Gallery and the Festival Village, plus the ‘Disturbing the Festival’ party at the end of Day 1.

For more details on this have a look at the What Does My Pass Include page.

Are one day passes available for the Festival?

There's too much to cram into just one day, so all tickets for the Festival are for both days (11th - 12th).

Tickets give you access to the Headliners, the 12 Stages, the Festival Village, The Masters Gallery and the Wednesday night party!

Can my colleague and I share a pass, we can only each attend one day?

Unfortunately tickets are not transferable. If you cannot attend the event, you can ask for a colleague to attend in your place, but unfortunately you are not permitted to share passes onsite.

What are the opening hours of the Festival of Marketing on each day?

Registration opens on both days at 8.15am.

The opening headliner starts at 9.15am and the final headliner finishes at 18.00 on each day. Please note we have a party on Day 1 (11th of November) which your Festival Pass gives you access to, this begins at 18.00 and ends at 23.00. 

Is there food available at the Festival?

There will  be breakfast provided each day, as well as food and drinks for a limited period of time at the Disturbing the Festival party.
Otherwise we will have street food stations where food can be purchased throughout the day.

Can I cancel my ticket?

As per the Terms and Conditions of the event, unfortunately once you have booked your ticket and received confirmation, you are not able to cancel your ticket. However, you can substitute your pass, and give it to a colleague to attend in your place. To do this, please log in to Eventbrite and update your booking, otherwise email us on info@festivalofmarketing.com and our team will be happy to help.

 When is the judging taking place?

The judging process will conclude in October.  All entrants will be contacted as soon as possible after the judging day to update them on the status of their entry/ies.

Judging for The Rising Star category will take place at the Festival of Marketing.

How and when will the award winners be announced?

Winners in each of the categories will be announced throughout the two open days of the Festival of Marketing. In place of one long ceremony, announcements will be staggered throughout the Festival, coinciding with session breaks to ensure that as many people as possible are able to come to the Gallery to watch the presentations in person, or are free to watch the ceremonies via the many screens around Tobacco Dock. 

The timing for each award will be scheduled and publicised well in advance and sponsors and each of the shortlist will be specially invited to champagne receptions at allotted times.

The ceremonies will all be filmed and shown throughout Tobacco Dock.  Our sponsors and winners will be interviewed to help each of us understand what it is that makes an award winning entry; to help spread and share best practice and to ensure that we celebrate, recognise and learn from the very best and most impressive of our creative industry.

Is there a rate for charities and not-for-profit organisations?

Yes, there are a limited number charity and not-for-profit organisation tickets available. If you believe that you are eligible, please get in touch with us on info@festivalofmarketing.com.
