Since 2018, this event has been helping people and companies grow

It began as Love Inbound. The name is now Avidly Activates. But what else is new?

The event has grown up.

Last year, plenty of you mentioned how inspiring and helpful some of the talks in particular were. And what a positive feeling the day created.

So, that's what we've leaned into even more this year.

Frequently asked questions

This event was formerly known as LOVE INBOUND and has been running since 2018. It's a free event to help sales and marketing professionals grow.

We bring inspiring thought leaders to a single stage and give you the motivation and learnings to grow your business, reach your goals and be the best version of yourself.

When: 10am-4pm on the 14th November 2024

Where: Everyman cinema Holmes Mill, Greenacre Street, Clitheroe, BB7 1EB


Registration begins at 9.30am and the wrap party (after party) will start at 4pm in our office above the cinema.

Sales and marketing professionals who have the drive to improve the business the represent and the desire to grow as people.

We also have business owners and founders in the audience.

Often, managers or team leaders will bring some or all of their team along too for the experience.

Well, LOVE INBOUND originated back in 2017. The company was then called Digital 22 and the world was a different place.

The event has grown beyond just being inbound related so we felt the name was too restrictive.

And then, once Digital 22 became part of Avidly, we wanted to rebrand the event anyway and make it part of the Avidly content ecosystem.

The result: Avidly Activates.

This is the UK 2024 event and we plan to take it to our other countries in the future.

For the 2024 event, we've made some changes and other additions to previous events. These include,

  • Moving to the Everyman cinema at Holmes Mill to make for a more immersive and creative environment
  • Mixing up the talk formats to include bite-size short talks and breakout sessions
  • Bringing more fun to make it an extra special day: DJs, spoken word performances, better swag... and more

The event will not be streamed live. This is an in-person and live once event.

There may be highlights from talks and snippets shared on social media - but you'll only get the full learnings by being here in person.

We offered a limited number of VIP seats. Like when you attend the cinema and choose the VIP seats, you get a few extras thrown in:

  • Priority seating
  • Extra swag and merch
  • Full HubSpot audit / Marketing gap analysis with a video presentation of our findings
  • Extra free drink tokens
  • 5x EXTRA entry into the Everyman subscription competition

VIP seats were all snapped up at the start of July. Other seats are filling fast so register now to avoid missing out.

Yes. The event is 100% free to attend.

Learning and sharing is important to us. We would want our team to attend an event like this anyway, so why not put it on ourselves so that you can enjoy the learnings too.

We invest in the cost of the event but do not charge entry.

This event is organised by the internal marketing team here at Avidly HubSpot Solutions.

Emily Yates, Marketing Manager, is the leader of the event and has been putting on events like this for years.

She is helped by the 30-odd legends who work with her from our UK studio in Clitheroe.

Paul, our Head of Marketing, will probably be stood at the free bar "networking."

In total, 100 tickets are available.

Absolutely. If we can ask a tiny favour, please do only order tickets for people you’re sure will attend. Otherwise, we’ll end up with loads of wasted food and some other people might miss out as we’re capping tickets at 100.

Of course! All we ask is that you register your guest in advance so that we know how many people to cater for.

If you have a group of people you want to register, feel free to message one of us directly: emily.yates@avidlyagency.com or paul.mortimer@avidlyagency.com 

You’ll just need to bring your notepad and your laptop.

Oh, and your thinking cap.

We’ll provideeverything else.

Yep, if you come to the event, we’ll send you the slides afterwards. Please sign up using the email you will use to register on the day.

Need to convince your boss to let you attend?

We understand your company or your boss might need more than "it's free" as a reason for you to attend. Check out this blog post for other ways the business will benefit from you attending Avidly Activates.
