Marketing and tech professionals from across the capital came together last night to celebrate the official launch of Prolific London.

Held in association with Media Agency Group, one of Prolific London's founding partners, the launch event took place at their Shoreditch offices on Appold Street.

The night began with a welcome drink and a networking opportunity before David Prior, Editor of both Prolific London and Prolific North, shared some introductory words and thanked everyone for coming. 

The launch party took place at the Media Agency Group workspace

David said: "It's great to see so many faces here, new and old. We've been wanting to launch in the capital for years now and I'm thrilled that it's finally happened.

"Having established ourselves as the go-to home of news, events and jobs for the creative sector in the North, we're delighted to be up and running and proving ourselves as a must-read title for mid-market marketing and tech news in the capital."

Attendees listened to short speeches from Microsoft's Ben Irons and Kristal Ireland of London North Eastern Railway

The event continued with keynote talks from two guest speakers. Microsoft's UK Sales Director Ben Irons talked about the rising importance of AI and Kristal Ireland, Head of eCommerce and Retail for London North East Rail, spoke about the importance of inclusivity in the marketing and tech sectors.

Speakers from each of the Prolific London founding partners then took part in a panel discussion, introducing themselves and talking about their objectives and ambitions for the year ahead. 

Nicky Wake, Managing Director of Prolific London, said: "It's fantastic to see such a great turnout. It shows what strong support there is for Prolific London. I want to thank everyone who's made tonight possible. 

"We really want to be a part of the marketing and tech communities thriving here in London. I can't wait to collaborate with businesses and people I've spoke to tonight for the various events and awards we have planned."

The night was also a chance for the organisers to tell guests about the Prolific London Awards which will take place on July 16th.

The awards will be an opportunity to celebrate excellence and reward the exceptional talent in London's creative and tech industries, and will be held at the Montcalm Marble Arch Hotel.
