Copy Cabana 2017
Wed, September 27, 2017, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM BST
When you think about writing, do you feel the same way we do?
Are you in love with copywriting? Optimistic about copywriting? Addicted to copywriting?
Are you excited by the power of copywriting to create better products, better experiences, better brands, better lives?
Copy Cabana 2017 is for you.
What is it? The copywriting event of 2017.
And because we’re in love with the idea, we priced it so everybody could afford to come.
We want you whether you’re cutting your teeth, busting your chops or making words dance to your own tune.
We don’t care if you’re a lightweight, a middleweight or a heavyweight.
We care about copywriters. Full stop.
Not a copywriter but words really do it for you or your brand? We want you too.
What will you gain at Copy Cabana 2017?
How about insights from some of the most creative, dynamic, left-field, experienced, provocative minds in copywriting, marketing and advertising?
How about the chance to mingle with a crowd of copywriters who would rather stick needles in their eyes than give up copywriting as a career? Or the species some think are all too rare – the marketers who love our words as much as their brands?
How about the confidence that you made the right choice, that you’ll never want for copywriting gigs, that people will love what you do and pay you to keep doing it?
Grab a seat. And hold on tight. Prepare to celebrate the life linguistic.
We're still finalising the full programme of TEN speakers. However here's a glimpse at who'll be there:

The people behind Copy Cabana 2017
Copy Cabana is the brainchild of two copywriters: Andy Maslen and Vikki Ross.
Between us we have 50 years’ experience in copywriting, marketing and advertising.
Vikki is a D&AD judge as well as a jury forewoman, and teaches at SCA, the world’s best advertising school. Andy is the author of five books on copywriting and a series of action thrillers.
We didn’t recognise ourselves – or our friends and colleagues – in the image presented of copywriters as needy “grammar geeks” or “word nerds”. For us and our clients, copywriting is the sun on the skin. The flake in the 99. The perfect wave. The coolest beach bar at the end of the hottest day.
We're bringing Copy Cabana 2017 to Matt Desmier’s smoking-hot Silicon Beach.
