Key dates for 2019

Hello Birmingham and beyond. Ahead of the Christmas break, we wanted to share some dates with you all in regards to the festival next year so that you can plan accordingly. These dates are obviously subject to change.

Sponsor profile: Emperor

We are soon approaching our tenth birthday at Emperor Birmingham and from our original duo we have blossomed into a vibrant team of 16+ and built ourselves a great home in one of the quarters’ classic old buildings in George Street.

Sponsor profile: PLOTT Creative

Lead by Anna and Richard, we’re a small but perfectly formed bunch of creative and digital enthusiasts who love to help ambitious businesses grow. You’ll find us in Coleshill surrounded by trees and green fields, and we love it here. 

Sponsor profile: Grin

We’re a talented bunch and we love what we do. This love comes through in the creative content we pride ourselves on and the skills we possess in all areas of visual communication, from marketing and advertising, to branding, print, digital and motion and we have a passion for the lot.
