I have just been working my way through the delegate network for the festival and I just stunned at the calibre of people attending. Below is a list of the most recent people to join the network (which all of our delegates are invited to join). THIS IS NOT A LIST OF SPEAKERS, THIS IS THE DELEGATES AND SPEAKERS WHO ARE BOTH IN OUR NETWORK WHICH YOU WILL GET ACCESS TO. Check out our speakers here.
This is just a cross section of the 500 industry professionals who will be present. The big question is… ARE YOU COMING? And if not, why not? You won’t just get to pitch and chat to these people, you will get the opportunity to create long lasting relatiohsnips, even partnerships. Where else can you prop up the bar with the writer of ‘Finding Nemo’ or pitch to the producer of ‘Last Of The Mohicans’?
