IPA Manchester & North West Evening Event 2019

Join us for a brilliant evening in Manchester which is brought to you by the IPA, the power behind the practitioners who make UK advertising what it is today and shape what it will become tomorrow.

We’ll be hearing from a fantastic guest speaker, Herb Kim – a true pioneer of our industry in the north of England – and catching up with friends and colleagues over some delicious food and a few drinks. We’ll also be celebrating the fantastic new talent entering the industry; hearing a brilliant success story from a Wavemaker Manchester apprentice and congratulating all of our 2019 Foundation Certificate graduates.
