SAScon (the UK's leading Search Analytics and Social Media Conference) is back and it's bigger and better than ever! With a juicy line-up of key speakers from Facebook, Missguided, Snapchat, Just East and much more, we’re proud to sponsor this event again for the fourth time! We also have an excellent line-up for you this year where we’ll launch our latest industry research which looks into Executive Level Recruitment Trends, then we'll have our not-to-be-missed Social Event, which will take place at the Roxy Ball Room, as well as much more, so keep reading!

Our Latest Industry Research: Executive Level Recruitment Trends

In partnership with the Manchester Publicity Association (MPA), The Candidate has conducted industry research that looks into the state of opportunities that exist at Executive Level (£70K+) in marketing, media and creative organisations across the North West. We asked over 60 directors and owners from both agency and client side companies and we got some valuable insight into the skills level and gender demographics in the industry.

The research will be launched on the first day of the conference and all of those who share it on social media will get a free drink token for our Social Event!

Competition: Do you want to win a bottle of bubbly?

The major golf championship, The Open, is kicking off while we’re at SAScon, so we thought we would bring the golf atmosphere to the conference! Visit our stand and participate in our mini golf competition and see how many hole-in-ones you can get in 1 minute - blindfolded! The competition will run on both days and the winners will be announced by the end of each day. We will have First, Second and Third prizes, so when you are taking a break from the talks, visit us and give it a go!

Social Event at Roxy Ball Room

This year’s social event will be held at the Roxy Ball Room, 1st Floor, 76-78 Deansgate, M3 2FN Manchester, starting at 17:30, where you can look forward to table tennis, pool and ping pong! We’ll make sure that there are nibbles and drinks available upon your arrival. Are you not sure how to get there? Don’t worry, we’ll have buses ready to take you from The Contact Theatre to the venue.

We will give out free drink tokens on the day of the event, so make sure you visit our stand!
