In a week’s time we’ll all be basking in the reflected glow of some of the world’s biggest brands at our Festival of Marketing.

The likes of LEGO, Tesco, M&S and Barclays are set to share their marketing wisdom, and we’ve also booked Tulisa and Bradley Wiggins to add some random celebrity glitz to the mix.
