Not your average conference
We're doing things a little differently at Impact Summit. For starters, the event takes place over three venues - BAaD, St Lukes and The Backyard - in one day and features a highly interactive, action-orientated programme. Bored of event catering? At Impact Summit we're hosting a street food market, so you can choose to eat from a range of incredible local traders during registration, breaks and lunch. Anything else? We're also throwing an outdoor after party so you've got more time to catch up with your fellow attendees - and enjoy the amazing food, drinks and music on offer.
