It’s the middle of the year at Marble and we’ve hit our busiest season; in the last 2 weeks we had six projects happening across the UK and virtually, allowing the team to sink their teeth into some new creative briefs and continue to build our repertoire in experience, content and communications. So when we learned that we were shortlisted for ‘Best Conference’ in this year’s Micebook V Awards, we were all absolutely elated!

Best in Class

The Micebook Virtual Awards are recognising how our industry has adapted and evolved over the past year, highlighting some of the best examples of virtual and hybrid events from April 2020 – March 2021. 

We’ve been shortlisted for our work with Henkel dx Ventures on their virtual event Xathon in November 2020 – a 3 day female ideation hackathon co-hosted with Global Digital Women. We designed and produced the content, communications and live experience, working closely with the brilliant Henkel dx Ventures team on our third event together that year. Xathon’s key aim was to empower 90 female tech talents and founders, to help them develop their ideas, promote diversity within the tech industry, and lastly to create a female focused community to network in. 

The hackathon united 91 attendees from 13 different countries across the weekend, for a series of panel discussions, workshops and mentorship sessions, with 100% of attendees saying they would return for another Xathon event.

We’re especially proud of this award nomination given the nature of the project, and the strides Henkel dx Ventures are accomplishing in championing gender diversity and female talent within tech. We particularly enjoy working with changemakers who strive to make a tangible difference and impact within their industry, through purposeful and community building live experience.

We can’t wait to see the results of our ‘Best Conference’ category when they are announced in September, but until then we’re celebrating the sixth award nomination under our belts here at Marble… and definitely not the last!
