Urbano Communities

Urbano Create

Urbano Create is a network which connects together those in TV, film, animation, advertising, publishing alongside other creatives, including branding, marketing, design, copywriting and strategy. Create is where architects can meet interior designers, wordsmiths connect to web developers, digital experts meet those who can draw, and those dealing with external communications meet those who drive change internally.

We have seen the diaspora of talent working in all forms of old and new media move from Soho to Shoreditch and back again, and now forming new creative hubs in London Bridge, King's Cross, and at other points of the London business compass.

Urbano Create aims to showcase and those who are setting new standards in the creative sectors and bring together diverse companies - and those that run them - to build alliances, seek new work, and help each other understand the shape of the future for this fast-moving and important UK sector.

 MIPIM NETWORKING RECEPTION @ CHURCH HOUSE WESTMINSTER, LONDON

THURSDAY MARCH 17TH  | 18.00 -20.30

Around this time, many Urbano member companies will be planning their participation at MIPIM - the international property event - which takes place in March. Due to different factors, many companies have already chosen either not to take a team over to France or with much reduced representation.

Sponsored by Stewart Title - a leading provider of title insurance and real estate services for the commercial and residential sectors - this event will provide great networking and hospitality courtesy of  Urbano and the team at Church House Westminster.

For this event, Urbano Members can book up to three representatives. Non-members can book a maximum of two representatives, subject to our usual restrictions.

Mark Goodier on Urbano 
"I found speaking at the Urbano event a very positive experience. Mark Herring is a remarkable speaker and he immediately set up a very positive atmosphere in the room and focussed the audience. I had very positive feedback both during and after my talk and would not hesitate to do it again. Mark is also clearly a remarkable networker and to be honest I’d strongly recommend attending pretty much any of his Urbano events".

Please note: Urbano events and membership are open to all. You will find 'Create' Community companies at all Urbano events. Our events themselves are designed to develop links between companies and across sectors: Films need finance and tech equipment; architects need software and fly-through animations; construction projects using BIM now include VR and gaming technology for marketing purposes. Urbano is one network with different communities and companies looking to connect.
