      • Access to the in-person event with talks from five speakers throughout the afternoon. A single track means you don't have to choose which content to miss out on.
      • Opportunities to meet, network, and learn from industry peers and thought leaders face to face!
      • Lunch on arrival with tea and coffee throughout the day. Each attendee gets their very own lunchbox, curated the by the brilliant chefs at the Watershed.
      • Two free drinks at the after party - we've got some making up to do 😉
      • On-demand access to the recordings of each session - unlike other events, there's no time limit on how long you can access the content for.

      Online

      Online = £0, Online + VIP Bundle = £45

      Access to the online event is free so that even those with a limited budget can learn some digital marketing tactics to employ in their strategy. You'll get access to:

      • The online event only with talks from five speakers throughout the afternoon. 
      • 1-1 networking via Hopin's virtual networking functionality as well as the opportunity to network with people at the event and ask questions on the big screen (impressive, right?)
      •  The virtual sponsor booths where you can seek advice and freebies from our much loved event partners.
      Online + VIP Bundle

      Online + VIP Bundle tickets will cost £45 each time they are released. You'll get access to everything in the online package listed above, as well as:

      • On-demand access to the recordings of each session - unlike other events, there's no time limit on how long you can access the content for.
      •  A goody bag bundle sent straight to your door which will include merchandise, activities, drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic options available), and snacks so that you can fully immerse yourself in the experience as if you were at the event itself but from the comfort of your home office.

      What safety measures will be in place for the in-person conference?

      The return of an in-person Digital Gaggle is something we’ve been eagerly anticipating for a long time. In order to make sure every attendee, speaker, sponsor, and team member has an enjoyable and safe experience, we’ve put the following safety measures in place:

      • Everyone will need to provide proof of a negative lateral flow test to enter the event. You will not be able to partake in the event without this. We think this is the best way to mitigate the risk associated with Covid-19.
      • The conference will run at 50% capacity meaning that social distancing is easier within the event spaces.
      • Coded lanyards will be worn by attendees to indicate whether they want to socially distance or are happy with closer contact, such as handshakes.
      • Lunch will be provided in individual lunchboxes, rather than a buffet.

      As well as these safety measures, the event venue also has rules in place. As of the time of writing (September 2021), the Watershed Cinema has a number of Covid-19 safety measures in place:

      • Floor markings to enable social distancing.
      • Hand sanitiser stations throughout the building.
      • Increased and enhanced cleaning regimes.
      • Staff wearing face coverings and perspex screens at desks and the bar area.
      • Contactless payments – they are cashless.
      • Air flow management plans in place to ensure adequate ventilation throughout.
      • Requirements for face coverings to be worn whilst moving around the venue.
      • Their staff have been fully trained on the new health and safety measures and are available in every area of the building to talk to and help visitors.
