Agency Discovery Events

Ingenuity's agency discovery events have become the best way for brands to unearth new agency talent.


Ingenuity’s events provide brand marketers with the opportunity to quickly gain a feel for what is on offer across the agency landscape and see who could potentially crack their marketing challenges. 

We use our expertise in the agency landscape to ensure that you meet with agencies who are right for your brand. 

We run events across most marketing disciplines including Digital, PR, Creative, Production and Tech. We also run events focusing on industry sectors or demographics like Health & Wellbeing, Youth Marketing, Marketing Procurement etc 

The best part, these events are free for brands to attend

How They Work

It’s a really simple process.

  1. If you have a marketing challenge you can’t crack and would like to speak to innovative agencies, then sign yourself up.
  2. You supply our team with your current challenges and we build a bespoke list of agencies who we believe would be a good fit.
  3. Meet the agencies face to face (via our awesome virtual platform) and discuss how your challenges can be solved.

It’s an amazing way to get a feel for what agency talent is out there, build a long list for a brief or simply start new agency relationships for upcoming needs.

(We are hoping to see a return to in person events soon!)


Who Attends

Here are some of the brands that have attended our events…


I have used Ingenuity twice in the last 12 months and they have matched the agencies to our needs very well. The first session was face to face where I met a wide range of experiential agencies for short 20 minute meetings - the calibre was very high and as a result we have signed one of the agencies as a preferred supplier. My second experience was a virtual event which was run seamlessly, and we currently have one of the agencies at RFP stage for virtual events. Without a doubt I will use Ingenuity in the future when I am looking to connect with new agencies.
Head of Events
It was great to see that even during these ‘unprecedented times’ agencies can still showcase their talent, creative flair and strategic thinking. Two full days of video conferences without any technical hitches flew by and would join another without hesitation.
Will Kennedy, Social Media Manager
As a newbie to the event and not quite knowing how it would all work, I can honestly say, we were all delighted by how magnificently well organised the event was and how smoothly it all ran. Any fellow marketers wanting to meet a selection of great agencies who have taken their time to read your brief and have just 20 mins to get their key messages across, allows you really quickly get a feel for who gets you as a business and who you might then want to follow up with. A much more efficient way of scouting and initially engaging agencies. We would highly recommend.
Marketing Director
This is the first time I've worked with Ingenuity and I found the whole relationship seamless. The supplier sessions were valuable, providing food for thought with content we'd like to follow up on. Overall I'd definitely recommend these virtual events to brands looking to take themselves out of their day to day, to think about what other opportunities are out there to support their business objectives.
Abigail Shepherd, Performance Marketing Manager
The Ingenuity team matched us with the perfect Agencies that understood our challenges as a brand. The event was a great opportunity to chat with a number of creatives & bounce ideas off each other in a comfortable and informal manner. We have made some great connections as a result & are looking forward to working with these agencies in the future.
Robyn Ree, Social Media Manager
We found the Ingenuity online events to be as smooth, well run and useful as the in person events. Everything flowed logically and we got to meet more great agencies who understood our challenges. We’ve used Ingenuity to meet several great teams so far, and their virtual platform was a great way to safely facilitate that.
Ben Morse, Content Production Manager
The digital platform used to speed date was excellent, and the Ingenuity team ran a very tight ship. We met a number of great teams and are following up on current and future projects. 20 minutes a pop really focuses the mind!
Head of PR
I love attending Ingenuity events, they give you the opportunity to meet with a wide variety of agencies in a short amount of time. You present a challenge or brief beforehand and then hear each agency pitch to you. Attending these events has saved me a huge amount of effort and time doing my own research/individual briefing and I now work with two agencies (social and PR) that I met through Ingenuity events.
Sarah Swain, Head of Marketing, Doctify
We worked with Ingenuity and attended one of their organised 'speed dating' events to meet with CRM agencies. It was very timely as we were looking to meet new agencies, but the whole event was really well organised and as a result of the day we asked several agencies to pitch for our business. I would recommend Ingenuity from our work together.
Dina Yacob, Head of Marketing & CRM, Avios
First-hand experience and word of mouth recommendation from industry peers are a very positive indication of an agency’s credentials. Chatting at these networking events and understanding who’s worth using is really helpful and helped us find current partners.
Amy Fisher, Shopper Marketing Controller, Dairy Crest
Amazing two days of sessions with a diverse and interesting range of agencies
Director of Sales & Marketing
