The Indie Summit is back!

We are beyond excited, to finally confirm that the Indie Summit will be back in 2023. The dates are fixed: Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th April 2023.


The city is confirmed: yes, it will be the beautiful, futuristic heart of South East Asia: Singapore. There is probably nowhere in Asia as vibrant, energetic and multicultural – but also, as safe and foreigner-friendly – as Singapore.

When and where?

Monday 17th – Tuesday 18th April in Singapore

Why Singapore? Asia is the world’s growth engine (half the world’s population) and the source of many new ideas and ways of doing things. Its central location makes it a relatively short and easy journey and there are direct flights from most major world cities. It’s also a lovely place to visit with beautiful hotels, gardens, history and fantastic food. For anyone who wants to stay longer, it’s a short hop to paradise destinations like Bali, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand.

Who should attend?

Owners and senior management of leading independent agencies from all communications disciplines – creative, media, PR and all forms of digital communication.

Why should you come?

Three reasons:

  • Connect – with agency leaders facing similar challenges and opportunities as you. Agency leaders who meet at our Summits often end up working together on international assignments, or collaborating in Thought Leadership groups (like our 2021 “Sustainability Group.”)

  • Learn – get up to speed with the latest trends and developments in our industry – and the skills you need today, to stay competitive. Pricing, scoping, winning new business, increasing profitability and performance, attracting and retaining talent, improving and measuring performance.

  • Trade – with other agencies of course, but also other stakeholders in the communications ecosystem who provide practical consultancy, coaching, training, and resources – especially designed for independent agencies.

New for 2023

Better value for money: a much reduced cost per delegate compared to previous Indie Summits in 2016-2019

Less keynotes, more interaction – small scale curated dinners rather than one big gala event (though we will have a cocktail party for all) plus new features like speed dating and special interest breakouts

Agenda and Speakers

Watch this space, we’ll be making announcements in the coming few weeks.

Where can I stay?

Singapore is well known for its luxury hotels and we have selected a great one for The Indie Summit 2023.

With downtown Singapore and Chinatown on the doorstep, the PARKROYAL COLLECTION Pickering Hotel is an eco-friendly, garden oasis located in central Singapore.

The hotel, designed by the world-famous WOHA firm of architects, is conceived with the best principles of ecology and sustainability, as the “Hotel in a Garden” – with 15,000 square meters of lush gardens, waterfalls and planter terraces. Here’s what Forbes has to say.

special room rate for delegates!

We warmly encourage delegates to book their hotel rooms at the discount rate we have arranged – while stocks last.

The special rate is  S$ 350.00 per room – equivalent to (at time of writing), GBP 215, USD 247 compared to S$ 476 publicly available rack rate – a massive saving of 35%!

All prices EXCLUDE local taxes which will be added by the hotel, and of course any personal expenses will be charge to guest’s rooms.

This rate is for the ‘Urban Deluxe” room, a standard (but very nice) room.

How to book your room

Booking your discounted room is easy.  Simply complete The Indie Summit registration form and, tick the box to request a booking code from us.  We’ll then send you the code that you can provide to the hotel when booking your room to benefit from the discounted rate.

Delegates will need to use their own credit card to guarantee the room (as with any hotel booking), the card will be charged on checkout. This rate is valid for the two summit nights and two nights either side, possibly longer by arrangement.  After you have booked your room, you will be able to book and pay for an upgrade directly with the hotel, while retaining the discount for Summit delegates.
