Vision conference to show people the future of being digitally creative for the fifth year
Want a fresh, clear perspective on the current state of the creative media and digital sector, and its future? Then the fifth Vision conference is for you.
It’s coming back to Bristol on 11-12 May, and, as the event organisers explain, there’s no better home for it as the city “is home to one of the most successful and innovative creative communities in the UK”.
“Bristol is recognised more than ever as a hotbed of creative, technology and entrepreneurial talent, both across the UK and internationally”
The two-day conference has attracted some of the biggest names in the industry as keynote speakers. These include; Jason Romeyko, Global Chief Creative Officer at Saatchi & Saatchi, Google’s Stephen Murphy, Fred Jones, GM of Uber, Channel4 technology news journalist Geoff White and Julia Hobsbawm, founder & CEO of Editorial Intelligence and the world’s first professor of networking (Cass Business School).

The line-up also features industry greats from the local vicinity, including Mark Bowkowski, well-respected celebrity & arts PR and Margaret Heffernan, writer, entrepreneur and TEDtalk regular. Also speaking will be Tim Westwell, co-founder and MD of local success story Pukka Herbs and Tom Barker, Head of Digital at the National Trust, based in Swindon.
Caroline Marshall, event producer and Bristol Media Operations Director (pictured right), explains, “The reason that we are able to attract speakers of such high calibre to Vision is testament to the fact that Bristol is recognised more than ever as a hotbed of creative, technology and entrepreneurial talent, both across the UK and internationally.
“Vision offers the opportunity to share ideas and network with people from outside your immediate circle”
The conference, which is sponsored by The Agency Works, City Fibre and ADLIB, will also offer you the chance to experience an interactive Virtual Reality exhibition from Opposable Games, Bristol based VR experts and hosts of the city’s VR World Congress during April.
Caroline adds: “Vision is attended by those in the creative and digital industries but also people from a raft of other sectors who are interested in the latest thinking on leadership and management, entrepreneurship and the future of digital, as well as the opportunity to share ideas and network with people from outside their immediate circle. However, tickets are selling very quickly so I’d advise anyone interested in attending to book as soon as possible.”
