Copywriting Conference becomes a digital festival

Our Copywriting Conference has transformed.

It was going to be a two-day conference in London.

But then life happened.

We needed to deal with the impacts of social distancing rules and fears about The Virus.

But we didn’t just want to shift the original conference online.

We wanted to expand the conference to make it bigger, better and more useful.

And so we expanded the conference by adding:

  • 2 trainers (Samar Owais and Sarah Richards)
  • 2 speakers (Natalie Narh and Eddie Shleyner)
  • 5 fringe events (see the Satellite Sessions)
  • 18 speaker Q&As
  • 1 poet (Rishi Dastidar)
  • 1 event app

What about networking?

We’re using a dedicated virtual event platform called Attendify to host the Copywriting Conference.

You can comment on talks, connect with other delegates (and even start 1-2-1 video calls within the app) and post questions for our speakers. And because all of this activity can start before the conference, and finish after it, the potential for networking is greater.

And the Satellite Sessions are also opportunities to join discussions and get to know more people in your community.

What about Zoom fatigue?

It’s real.

That’s why we’re breaking up the day with poetry, intermissions and opportunities to get away from your desk.

The entire conference will be recorded and available to watch after the event. So you might prefer to watch some of the conference live, and catch up with other bits later. Or you might choose to attend parts of the conference from your sofa, and some parts from a cafe.

Or you can watch every moment, join every fringe event and gradually merge with the Matrix (this is just a joke; we don’t currently offer Matrix-merging).

What if I already booked?

Email events@procopywriters.co.uk for details of what we’re offering.

Discounts for Pro and Corporate members

Check your dashboard for the promo codes.

The discounts provide the best value – even better than the current ‘earliest-adopter’ ticket.

What about 2021?

We’re optimistic that we’ll be able to return to London next October.

But there’s a good chance we’ll do a dual-event and retain an online option.

Beyond the benefits the virtual event brings in terms of affordability, it’s a great way to reduce our carbon footprint and improve access to people who can’t travel to London.
