      Gaggle's Back!

      Digital Gaggle is the biannual marketing conference which brings together the best marketing minds in the brilliant South West.

      You’d normally find Gaggle taking roost at Bristol’s iconic Watershed cinema but a global pandemic has meant that events this year are looking a little different. And because the team at Noisy Little Monkey are way too impatient and sociable to wait for a vaccine until we can all hang out in-person again, we’ve turned Digital Gaggle into an online event.

      A digital Digital Gaggle, if you will.

      What can you expect at Digital Gaggle?

      We’ve taken all the glorious bits you’ve come to expect from an in-person Gaggle and translated them into a day-long virtual marketing festival. 

      The event returns on Thursday 19th November from 9am - 5pm via Hopin - an all-in-one event platform where attendees can learn, connect and interact with other marketers from across the UK.

      Check out the agenda here.

      Main stage talks

      We’ve hand-picked a lineup of exceptional speakers to share their knowledge and inspire you with cutting-edge techniques which you can apply to your digital strategy

      Talks include:

      Breakout sessions

      Breakout sessions are live group breakouts where attendees can gather round virtual roundtables and collaborate. Up to 20 people can participate in a session with video/audio switched on, or if you’d prefer to sit back and watch, you can do exactly that.

      Each breakout session is designed to facilitate discussion amongst attendees. Dive into a session if you’re looking to tap into the hive mind of your peers, flesh out campaign ideas or simply troubleshoot a particular topic with an expert in the industry.  

      Breakout sessions you can choose to participate in at Digital Gaggle include:

      Attendees are invited to create their own breakout sessions at Digital Gaggle if there’s something they want to discuss which isn’t already on the agenda.

      (Access available to VIG and Golden Egg ticket holders only).


      Hopin’s networking function allows attendees to network just like you would at an in-person event. Their platform pairs people up in 1 on 1 conversations via live video and if you make a connection you want to keep, you can exchange contact information at the click of a button. Networking segments at Digital Gaggle will be set to five minute slots, like speed networking.

      (Access available to VIG and Golden Egg ticket holders only).

      Expo booths

      Think of the expo booths like a virtual exhibition hall; this is where you can go to meet sponsors at their virtual stands and redeem offers on their products or services.

      So many facets of a good marketing strategy require external expertise; at Gaggle we’ve hand picked our most trusted partners to introduce you to. From creative agencies and email marketing specialists to HubSpot partners and web design experts, you’ll make the right kind of connections at Digital Gaggle.

      After party activities

      So we can’t gather round a bar with a nice cold drink after the conference on this occasion BUT that doesn’t mean we can’t do something fun after the event officially ends.

      From 4pm - 5pm, you can round off your day at one of the interactive after party activities. Pick from a live Vinyasa Yoga class or interactive cocktail making hosted by Bristol Spirit where the ingredients will be sent straight to your door. 

      (Available only to VIG and Golden Egg tickets holders)
