Copy Cabana 2016: 12 speakers, 1 day, 1 beach

As some of you know, I have joined forces with Andy Maslen and Matt Desmier to launch Copy Cabana 2016, a brilliant new event for copywriters to celebrate copywriting.

We’re hitting Matt’s hugely successful Silicon Beach in Bournemouth on 28 September. Early bird discount tickets sold out in just 12 hours but there are still tickets left to what’s guaranteed to be the copywriting event of the year.

We’ve completed our speaker line-up since my last post. And what a line-up it is. We have secured 12 speakers from some of the UK’s biggest brands and agencies and they’re geared up to talk to you about all things wordy. They’ll entertain. They’ll inspire. They’ll share the things you really want to know.
