Voom Tour 2017
What happens on tour…
May 10th 2017
It’s been awesome but we’ve just waved a tearful goodbye to Manchester, the first stop on our Voom Tour. Want to know what you’ve missed? Turns out, quite a lot.
How many can you fit on a double decker?
Health and safety people look away now…but over the two days hundreds of people came along and listened to our most excellent experts who explained how social media is evolving, how to write a killer campaign and how to pitch like a demon (and all from people who really know what they’re talking about).
The weather was amazing. Manchester in the sun is gorgeous. And that brought out the smiles all round. As did many of our speakers.
Luke Massie’s inspiring story of how he grew Vibe Tickets prompted some of the best questions of the day. And top marks to the Black Milk Cereal crew – some of Virgin Start Up’s finest alumni– for plying us with some of the finest milkshakes known to mankind.
And while we were enjoying Manchester’s hospitality 20 of the city’s most awesome startups signed up to our VOOM 2017 competition with the chance to pitch their idea to Richard Branson and win a share of £1million in prizes.
Ok, so that’s all happened but the good news is that we rock up in our Voom Tour bus to ExCel London on 17 and 18 May. And we’ll be touring the UK so check out where your nearest stop is – and get onboard. And we’ll also be back in Manchester in September as well. Watch this space.
