BorderlessLive is our brand new London event, held on Friday 6th & Saturday 7th September 2019. We’ve partnered with Reed Exhibitions, the team behind WTM, to bring you this exciting new event! Exhibition meets festival, as this event will connect brands, content creators and the wider community over these epic two days. This exciting event will be aimed at creators, bloggers, YouTubers, Instagrammers, whether you are established or if you’re venturing into this for the first time.
We’ve compiled a list of 8 reasons why you really can’t afford to miss the best urban festival of the year (in our humble opinion)….
1.) The informative and educational conference schedule
BorderlessLive will provide you with the chance to create, inspire and learn with its unmissable conference schedule. You will be able to attend a full series of workshops, sessions and panels. If you know Traverse, you’ll know that we know how to put on a jam-packed conference schedule, drawing on our past seven years experience of running conferences.
If you, or someone you know, is keen to start their own channel (blog, Youtube, podcast) but doesn’t quite know where to begin, BorderlessLive will be the perfect opportunity to get started. There will be interactive sessions and pro-bars as well as photoshoot opportunities so you can take the perfect photo for your channel!
2.) Connect with the world’s biggest brands
We will be joined at BorderlessLive by global brands, DMOs and tour operators. This will allow you the opportunity to connect with representatives from brands from around the world, showcasing all their brand has to offer. There will be three different digital speed networking sessions taking place over the course of the two days at BorderlessLive.
3.) Discover the latest trends in tech, travel and influencer marketing
There’ll be product demos of the latest tech and gear on the market. As well as this, we will have leading experts in their field discussing the latest trends in both travel and influencer and content marketing to keep you up-to-date.
4.) Amazing food & drink
One of our favourite part of any indoor festival is the array of incredible food and drink stalls present and BorderlessLive will be no different. Expect an exciting mixture of different cuisines from all around the world, as well as plenty of well-stocked bars!
5.) The venue
Have you visited the Tobacco Dock London before? If you haven’t you are in for a treat. This incredible space is a pretty epic venue. Dating back to 1811, this massive brick building was originally used, as you may have guessed, for storing imported tobacco. In 2012 it was reborn as the event space we know it as today. Hosting over 150 events every year, we know that this is the perfect venue to host our brand new event. And, it’s just one stop on the DLR from Bank.
6.) The evening parties and events
It would not have the Traverse stamp firmly on this event without some amazing evening parties. These are a chance to relax and unwind after a productive, informative day while networking in an informal environment. After the event officially closes at 6pm, attendees with passes for the evening party are invited to stick around as we turn up the music and bring out the refreshments.
7.) The chance to learn about effective influencer marketing
Find out the best ways to effectively implement influencer marketing in your campaigns. If you are an industry attendee, find out how others in the industry are succeeding with their strategies. You will also be given the unique chance to meet and share ideas with creators, industry attendees and experts in digital marketing.
8.) Meeting like-minded content creators
We are expecting to welcome around 3,000 attendees to this event. There will be content creators of all abilities and stages, all of whom will be looking to get inspired, create and learn – just like you!
Extremely limited creator pre-sale tickets go live this Friday at 12pm (BST). Make sure to head to the website to get yours then.
