Last week members of the team represented Visualsoft at the very first Prolific North Live event held at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester – Home of Lancashire Cricket Club. Over the course of the day the event attracted a phenomenal 2,000 attendees, 100 exhibitors, 60 companies and 30 guest speakers through its doors, so it comes as no surprise that the first Prolific North Live event was a huge success. The Twitter hashtag #PNLive gave the likes of #PepGuardiola and #Trump a run for their money in the trending race, showing that the buzz of the day was felt across the whole exhibition venue and all involved.
Prolific North Live was described as ‘the biggest ever gathering of media, marketing and creative industries professionals outside of London’ and from our experience, we are pretty confident that this was achieved. The event showcased a variety of like minded businesses and the very best the North has to offer in a range of marketing areas from PR to Digital Marketing and eCommerce.
Each individual will have taken their own highlights from the day home with them, but the lengthy and varied exhibitor list combined with ice cream machines, cupcakes, virtual reality headsets, a spot of bingo (Which we won a very nice bottle of champers on!) and every marketing discipline imaginable, topped off with some fantastic guest speakers running all day including our favourite Yossi Erdman (ao.com), there really was something for everyone.
A big thanks to all that came over for a chat with us – we were proud to be a part of such a successful event in the North!
