What is the Crunch?

A networking evening for the media, marketing and creative community. Free drinks, good company and a couple of interesting talks to kick off the conversation. It’s presented by Campaign and your drinks are paid for by our generous sponsors at AKQA.

Who should attend?

Marketing managers who are interested in what’s new, media managers who want to know what the competition is up to and thirsty creatives who are getting lonely sitting behind their Macs.

Why you should attend?

There’s house beverages. And interesting conversation. And like-minded people.
