Join leaders and thinkers from major brands for a marketing conference like no other.
Dots is the top conference of my annual events calendar. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk with like-minded people, developing and connecting the ideas presented on stage.
I loved the variety of talks, the short format of each one. Lots of really interesting people to talk to. It was a brilliant day and well worth the price. I'll definitely come back next year.
This is my second year attending Dots and I wasn't disappointed. A fantastic and thought-provoking line-up and I came away genuinely wanting to find out more.
