The Festival of Marketing kicked off this morning with our Funnel B2B event in Old Billingsgate, featuring an agenda stuffed to the gills with top quality speakers plus plenty of room for networking on the side.

However the unofficial start to the week’s events actually took place last night with the University Challenge pub quiz, hosted in association with The Marketing Academy.

Some of the finest digital talent in the land competed with a few chancers from the Econsultancy blog to see who is the most informed marketing team in the UK.

The eventual winners were recruitment agency Propel Digital with a suspiciously high score of 58, and there were absolutely no sore losers… 😉

The charity event saw 16 teams of six people competing across five different rounds – digital, creative advertising, data and insight, media, and brands. All proceeds will be split between MediaTrust and Macmillan.

The Festival of Marketing is running for the rest of this week, with events including JUMP, CRUNCH and PUNCH.
