NineDots Gathering // Sponsor

THIS IS NOT A CONFERENCE.
THIS IS NOT A WORKSHOP.
THIS IS THE NINEDOTS GATHERING.
LONDON 15-17 NOV 2021

The NineDots Gathering is a widely acclaimed annual conference for wedding photographers, attracting around 150 attendees from all over the UK and the rest of the world. Held in London each November, the Gathering is renown for it’s perfect blend of inspiring keynote presentations, practical workshops, and the high quality social events that provide opportunities for networking and connecting with like minded individuals and brands.

Sponsors have included Sony, Loxley, Shootproof,  Fundy, Grizzly Bear Design, Gifyyy photobooths, PicTime, Wooden Banana and many more! We are always looking for sponsors who fit with our brand and ascetic and will appeal to our vast network of photographers and all areas of their business. All exhibiting sponsors are located in the main room where talks and social time takes place,  so throughout the conference there are constant opportunities to talk and interact with attendees, this marks us out as different from many other conferences and is one of the key the reason why sponsors come back each year.

THE GATHERING VENUE

Bounce (Farringdon) 121 Holborn EC1N 2TD

When we were searching for the perfect place to hold the first gathering, we looked at some of the normal conference and seminar spaces and we were so underwhelmed. We knew we wanted an intimate, social, boutique vibe for the gathering and when we found Bounce in Chancery Lane we knew we had found the perfect venue. You will get to spend three full days, with all of our attendees during the day and in the evenings too all in intimate surroundings.We know you’ll love it.

THE PRESENTERS

We are super excited to be welcoming some of the most talented photographers in the world to inspire and share their knowledge at this year’s Gathering. We’ve worked with them to ensure a wide variety of subjects and formats to give maximum value to our attendee’s. The Gathering is the ultimate mixture of keynote presentations on the main stage and practical mini-masterclasses.
