#BLOOMFEST: OUR ANNUAL CONFERENCE
BloomFest is a one-day conference and the flagship event for the Bloom network. It embodies our values, and aims to contribute to creating a more diverse and better balanced comms industry. One of the aims of BloomFest is to keep it affordable, and any profit made is given to Women’s Aid, our charity partner. Both women and men are welcome to attend.
