Networking is important. The chance to learn from and, to share ideas with colleagues is invaluable in our increasingly fast-moving industry.

To provide Indie Summit delegates with every opportunity to meet, talk and establish new friendships, there were a series of social and networking events during the Summit that they can attend.


The Indie Summit officially started with a welcome drinks party on Tuesday 13th June at 18:00 – 20:00. Delegates enjoyed drinks, delicious canapés and live music in the heart of London. This was the perfect way to meet fellow delegates for the first time in an informal setting before the Summit started the following morning.


After the Welcome Drinks, delegates were invited to share an informal dining experience in some of London’s most fashionable restaurants with other agency leaders attending The Indie Summit. This was a great chance to make connections ahead of the Summit that started on Wednesday morning.


The coffee and lunch breaks provide an ideal opportunity for delegates to discuss the presentations that they’ve just seen in the auditorium. Additionally, they are an ideal opportunity to make new friends from other parts of the world and speak with the sponsors in an informal and relaxed setting over a drink and bite to eat.


On the evening of 14th June, London’s iconic Natural History Museum played host to the prestigious Indie Summit Celebration Dinner and inaugural INDIE AWARDS.

The ‘celebration of independence’ started with a welcome cocktail and live entertainment in the grounds of this incredible Gothic museum. There was then a chance to see some of the historic collections by Charles Darwin. The highlight of the evening was a fabulous gala dinner and the first ever INDIE AWARDS presentation.


Wednesday morning started by getting mind, body and spirit into gear. Delegates were invited to join the complimentary yoga session at the Royal College of Physicians with renowned personal trainer and founder of The Vault Gym, Jon Squirrell.


Both the Welcome Drinks and Fitness Session are complimentary and open to all delegates. The Curated Dinners and Celebration Dinner including the Indie Awards, are open to all delegates although there’s an additional charge.
