Ready to bring the industry back together again

What’s RecFest?

After a 2 year absence, we are delighted to announce that one of the industry’s most beloved events returns in-person, on the 16th of July, at Dreamland in Margate.

RecFest was created to celebrate the efforts of hard-working TA professionals, by providing a space to discover, learn and, most importantly, connect. After the hardest year most of us have ever been through, and with hiring being turned on its head, we wanted to give you your RecFest, as quickly as it was safe to do so.

Margate, easily accessible with frequent trains from London, is the quintessential British seaside town with a vibrant edge. It is the perfect destination for RecFesters to reunite with colleagues and industry peers, and gain much needed headspace and inspiration to take on the new world.

We have secured sole access to Dreamland which is an 15,000 person outdoor venue, and with an expected 1000 in-person attendees, we are allowing for as much space as you need to feel safe & comfortable.

So whether reconnecting with your team, catching-up over a drink with an old colleague, soaking in live talks or just to feel the power of camaraderie as you realise that other people are in the same boat you are, we have you covered.

Let’s make some more memories, together. RecFest 2021 is uniting the industry once again.

The Venue


Since RecFest’s inception, we have always been on the hunt for vibrant, cutting edge venues that break the traditional corporate event mould. In previous years, RecFest has been hosted on a boat going down the Thames, Borough Market, in a field split between 5 big top tents…so of course the next natural step would be to take over the oldest-surviving amusement park in Great Britain.
