2018 International Business Festival – Immersive Festival and Venue Design


Our ambition is to work with a creative design team which is able to build on the structure and success of the International Business Festivals of 2014 and 2016. The festival’s Creative Director Jude Kelly and team have evolved both the creative direction of the festival and festival offer for our delegates.

We are now looking to appoint a creative partner to develop an immersive festival experience and the accompanying venue layout for the International Business Festival 2018 which will take place in Liverpool, UK.
