Event description


Hi Gluggers,

It's time!

– So, what is this?
Well, on the 19th of April we're basically bringing Team Glug and Team Tech Off to Cargo, Shoreditch for a night focussed on creativity, technology, opinions, battles, wigs, confetti and boxers... As well as new ideas, industry tips, beers and banter.

– Deets
On the night we'll be hearing from no one less than the reigning maestro-super-winner Sam Applebee (Kickpush, Super Global) as well as Toby Gunton (Edelman PR), Adrian Brown (CPI), Helen Lawrence (Twitter), Cathy White (GeekGirl UK) and William Harvey (VCCP). As per always when we're at Cargo we've got a beer included in the price, and we expect the tickets to run out quickly so make sure you get in before it's too late.
