Festival: the app

“How about pre-event networking?” we hear you ask. No worries there, our app has an entire Interact feed. Launching a few weeks before the Festival, it’s a space for you to share your thoughts, questions and FoM excitement with other delegates. Plus, use the inbox feature to privately message others. The inbox makes it even easier to arrange face-to-face meetings whilst at Tobacco Dock.
