CogX is the UK’s largest technology festival and the largest AI festival outside of China. The team wanted to build on the success of their previous two events, while expanding the size and capacity of the technology festival to attract the nationwide recognition it deserves.
Marble were tasked with designing and producing the entire festival, selecting the appropriate areas within Kings Cross to cater for 20,000 attendees (+400% increase on 2018) over three days, and big enough to host 687 speakers (+129% increase on 2018) across multiple stages (temporary or permanent). In addition, reflecting the Global Goals (UN SDGS) throughout the festival was a core part of the brief, and the main focal point for CogX partner Project Everyone.
“I love working with the Marble team, every single one of them has that attitude we need to deal with both the stress and the joy that comes with an event of this size. 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.”
