Your checklist for RecFest:

  • Your ticket (digital or print)
  • A reusable water bottle – we are aiming to minimise our plastic & carbon footprint even further than last year, so please help us to achieve this
  • A notebook & pen – there will be loads of content you’ll want to take back!
  • Suncream, sunnies and maybe a hat or your flip flops
  • An umbrella? 
  • Your ID. If you are lucky enough to look under 25, you might be asked for ID.
  • Comfy clothes!

Day 1 remains the same RecFest as in past years and will be seeing five stages of learning, over 100 Speakers covering a huge plethora of subjects, as well as dozens of experiential activities, street food, networking drinks and RecFestRocks.

Day 2 offers something different, with a sharp focus on 5 core subjects. Each stage becomes a zone specific to that subject, including:- the Brand & Experience Zone, the Leadership Zone, the Start-up Zone, the DBR Zone, and the Early Career Zone. Ideal for people with a specific focus, to spend time with others in the same role learning together.

The dress code is casual! RecFest is an outdoor recruitment festival so check the weather the day before and wear what you would to an outdoor festival. Check out last year’s photos here to see what others wore to RecFest.

We recommend arriving between 8 and 8:30 AM in order to check-in on time and enjoy some breakfast before the first talk starts.

We recommend using public transport. You can hop on the DLR towards Mudchute or Crossharbour; or grab a bus (D3 or D7) towards Pier Street.

If coming by car, you will need to access the venue by Pier Street (there is no parking on-site).
