CogX is the UK’s largest technology festival and the largest AI festival outside of China.
Marble were tasked with designing and curating the entire festival, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to strategically position CogX as the continued leader in tech thought leadership.
CogX kicked off it’s third year at London’s Technology Week in June 2019 at a 67-acre area in Kings Cross, with over 20,000 attendees and 687 speakers across 12 purpose built stages.
We designed the entire event, including technical production, interior and asset design, all site-wide branding and sponsor designs including full production for: Google X, Accenture, AIG, 2030Vision, HSBC and QuantumBlack.
Opened by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, the speaker line-up featured international Government Secretaries of State, Ministers and business leaders from HSBC, Accenture, IBM, Alibaba, Google, Unilever, QuantumBlack and more. We partnered with screenwriter Richard Curtis and his company Project Everyone, which seeks to put the power of communications behind the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The main stage (the Impact Stage) hosted 750 guests over two floors, the Ethics Stage was a bespoke stretch tent structure with a tiered stage, built for purpose and rigged by Marble inside a Victorian gas holder by the canal, seating 500 guests, all built to bring sustainable materials to the forefront.
We’re thrilled that our role in the project was recognised by C&IT magazine, winning their ‘Technology and Telecoms Event of the Year” award!
Together we’ve brought the vision of the festival I’ve had in my head to life. And it’s been amazing, so thank you.”
