Setting up the perfect shot, directing with style and editing with a clear vision are only part of Zut Media’s job. The fast-growing content creation company makes smart films, with the audience in mind, from the very start. This year Zut is attending the International Business Festival. Here, co-owner, Mark Hancock, tells us why.

“The festival provides a fantastic opportunity for us to be in a place that is literally filled with potential new clients. Other businesses told us how the event can act as a launch pad to bigger and better things, and that’s why we’re attending this year. It’s the perfect event for businesses like us, who are firmly focussed on taking the next step.

 “We’ve already scored major clients, like Liverpool and Everton Football Clubs, but we want more. We believe that the festival’s unique format will help take us where we want to go, like no other event could."  


Data is a big business, making companies smarter, sharper and more strategic.  The Lead Agency uses data to generate and sell new business leads, matching products and services to specific, target demographics. Here, the company's Managing Director, Anton Hanley, tells us how our festival has benefited his business.

“I started the business when I was 19 years old and I’m really proud of it because we built this out of nothing. But we can’t stay still, we have to grow. We’re looking to build a truly international business and that’s where this event can help.  

“Success is all about reputation. We’re always looking to build sustainable relationships and the International Business Festival delivers that. We’re now gaining footholds in new markets and securing lucrative new contacts. I’d urge any business who is serious about growth to make the most of this incredible opportunity."


Leading biotechnology company Absynth Biologics develops protein vaccines to address the challenge of antimicrobial resistance.

Here, Chief Executive Dr. Fiona Marston, tells us how our festival will help her company succeed.

 “To take our products through the early stages of the clinic takes many tens of millions. We then have to secure a much bigger partner, who will invest hundreds of millions of pounds, to take the product through to market.

“Our main potential customers are pharmaceutical companies. So, even though we’re small we have to be global. The festival is a one-stop-shop that gives us the opportunity to network. There’s a very big world out there for us to not only trade with but to interact with and when we can spend a short amount of time meeting a large number of people, from all around the world it’s extremely important.”
