Thank you to all the wonderful folk who have signed up to this month’s BrandNew. With a week to go we’re near to full capacity with a guest list peppered with interesting and well-known brands from fashion, media, IT, travel and food.

We’ve got some fantastic sponsors on board with Taylor Wessing providing space, hot drinks and snacks and Media 140 giving BrandNew attendees free tickets to their exclusive Brand pre-event party.

Now we’re looking for someone kind enough to get the drinks in! If you are interested please email joanna.geary[at]thetimes.co.uk.

Due to the number of requests for tickets I’ve had over the last 24 hours, we’ve reserved a bigger space at Ember bar for the BrandNew launch.

This means there are a few extra tickets available for the event, which had sold out this morning.

Get your tickets on our BrandNew Eventbrite page.

When the idea for BrandNew was conceived, I could not have anticipated the fantastic support it would receive.

But with just 48 hours before our launch we now have over 40 attendees representing a wide range of well-known brands from sectors as diverse as finance, telecommunications, media, energy and politics.

More great news is that political advertising consultancy MessageSpace have kindly put some money behind the bar for Thursday’s launch.

Big thanks goes to Jag Singh, MessageSpace’s founder and CIO, for offering his support.

Jag will be there on Thursday to explain more about his business, which offers campaign consultancy services to charities and interest groups (clients include HSBC, Microsoft and Save the Children) and coordinates advertising across Britain’s biggest blog-ad network, featuring blogs such as Guido Fawkes, Boris-Johnson.com, Labourlist and LibDemVoice.

Also, if you haven’t signed up to the BrandNew launch, there are just a few (5 at the time of writing) tickets left! You can reserve one by visiting our Eventbrite page.

See you on Thursday!

Welcome to the brand new BrandNew blog, the online home of the soon-to-be-launched BrandNew meetups.

We hope BrandNew will be a place for those who work representing brands online, allowing them the chance to network, share and learn.

A big thanks also goes to Andrew Hemmings who suggested the name BrandNew.

Our first event will be September 10th at Ember in Farringdon. We hope this will be a chance for you to help shape BrandNew and how it evolves.

In the meantime, if you want to get involved, or have any suggestions, please leave a comment below or drop me a line at: joanna.geary@thetimes.co.uk.

Thanks. Look forward to seeing you at the meets!
