Multi award-winning event organiser CloserStill Media welcomed a record attendance with over 12,000 business leaders and industry experts at Technology for Marketing, eCommerce Expo & ad:tech London 2018. The long-established brands were co-located this year, bringing together the closely aligned worlds of marketing, ecommerce and advertising.

The first event of the Autumn season for the organiser at Olympia London, the audience increased on 2017 by 26% overall, setting a new record for the events combined. The exhibition floor framed in the historic Olympia National hall hosted over 250 leading suppliers including IBM, Amazon Business, Magento, Adestra, Royal Mail and Barclay Card. It played host to 11 theatres and over 300 thought leaders and practitioners, offering unrivalled insight into the latest innovations and use cases in the market.

The three hallmark shows, all acquired between September and December 2017, have been completely rebranded over the last 12 months, creating one of the largest digital events anywhere in the UK across three growing industries.

Graeme Howe, Managing Director, said, ‘After originally launching eCommerce Expo and Technology for Marketing, I now have the privilege of driving these events to the next level almost a decade later. CloserStill Media’s vision with this portfolio was truly realised last week. We have seen record breaking sales and attendance numbers, as the result of an incredible rebrand and the tireless efforts of the CloserStill team across each and every department. This is the highest quality audience these events have ever seen and what a statement it’s made!’

Seizing the opportunity, CloserStill Media is anticipating the launch of its inaugural event, eCommerce Expo Asia, which is set to be one of the leading ecommerce events in South East Asia. Over 1,500 delegates are expected to flood through the doors at Marina Bay Sands on the 10 – 11 October 2018.
