An exclusive invitation-only roundtable event, Digital Cream is an opportunity for senior client-side marketers to learn from each other about the latest best practice, what’s working and what’s not. 

Digital Cream is a 'hands-on' event where you have a say in the conversation …and the more you engage, the more you learn.  You will network and learn from peers across various industries through specialist discussions and debate.

NB. It's Chatham House Rules so what's said at Digital Cream, stays at Digital Cream.

Plus, for the first time, Digital Cream will be running a number of tables in association with Marketing Week. These topics look beyond the challenges of digital, at the broader marketing challenges brands face. 

Roundtable Format

The topic-focused roundtable format allows you to discuss a number of subjects that are most relevant to you and find out from your peers how they are addressing the challenges and opportunities you are also facing. These typically include questions around best practice, measurement, ROI, resourcing, supplier selection, recruitment, business processes, budgeting, trends etc. 

There are three roundtable sessions of an hour and a half each. Each session is moderated by an expert, and focuses on the particular challenges or areas of interest nominated by the table's attendees. This level of input ensures you get the maximum from your day.
