ABOUT THE EVENT

The wait is over! It’s been a long two years not being able to work together face-to-face, but now, DealMaker Europe is back and in person!

Join us in London this June to connect, learn, grow, deal and, dare we say, party with over 700 of the best (and best-performing) professionals from our tight-knit group of advertisers and publishers. It turns out networking doesn’t have to feel like work. Start building close relationships that close big deals—without a zoom call in sight.

We’ve combined our DealMaker London, Munich and Paris events into a single conference taking place in London, England at the Brewery, 9th of June.

The Venue

The Brewery
52 Chiswell St
London EC1Y 4SA, UK

This year's DealMaker Europe will be taking place at The Brewery, in the heart of London. The Brewery occupies the site of the former Whitbread brewery which shut its doors in 1976, leaving behind a premier event venue with historic roots.

Travelling to the Brewery by public transport is quick and easy. The venue is close to Liverpool Street, Moorgate and Barbican stations, and served by at least 10 bus routes. There are no car parking facilities on site at The Brewery. The nearest public NCP car park can be found at The Barbican.

Sponsor Testimonials
“…we left the event with nothing short of at least 10 hot client prospects and as a relatively new player to the affiliate industry, RevLifter achieved amazing brand awareness. We also enjoyed connecting with Rakuten employees at various seniority levels and from around the world. A job well done Rakuten and looking forward to future events!"
- Simon Bird, Co-Founder at RevLifter

"DealMaker London (now DealMaker Europe) is a great place to meet up with publisher and advertiser prospects, as well as catching up with our Rakuten Advertising friends. We won business directly from attending the event last year so it was a no-brainer for us to be involved again! We're looking forward to it!"

- Drew Cameron, Sales Director, PerformanceIN

“DealMaker is a unique experience that help you to connect with new potential partners and also strengthen your existing ones. What I liked most is to connect a face to my contact emails with whom I write on a regular basis in order to get a stronger connection based on trust.”

 

- Eva Cecchinato, Head of Sales at Sparheld International GmbH
