Good Food, Good Networking & Good Fun

Good food and drinks - check. Great networking opportunities - check. Raucous fun - check.

The Digital Leaders Banquet (especially the winter one) is a key milestone in the digital marketers year that we really look forward to. Having started as a small collective we are now a rapidly growing strategic digital agency. This has been underpinned by some key clients and suppliers that have been won from connections made during the various DLB’s we have attended.

 

The event works by simply putting lots of leaders from marketing and digitally focused agencies, companies and entrepreneurs together in what is usually a grand hall. The format provides each attendee with a seat on a large banquet table next to 3-4 other attendees. This setup, along with the lavish food and unrelenting amount of wine, provides the perfect opportunity to build a friendly rapport with some great contacts.

 

In addition to the actual sit down, there are networking opportunities before and after the event that culminate in a trip down to a pub to ‘continue the conversation’. The pub visit is where things get really interesting and the days networking turns more into a hearty discussion with fellow industry leaders around almost anything but work (great for building real lasting relationships rather than just a follow on Linkedin).

 

Aside from being just fun, it does have a tangible financial business benefit. Since the last event we have secured business worth over £40,000 with contacts made from the event.

 

So to summarise the reasons to go:

 

  • Good fun
  • Good food
  • Good drinks
  • Good people
  • Good business

 

If you are reading this and have secured your ticket, or are planning on attending. Blue Baboon look forward to meeting you at the 2015 Digital Leaders Winder Banquet.
