Uplift Live is the UK’s LinkedIn-focused conference and takes place on 27 March 2025 at Millennium Point in Birmingham.

This is THE place to learn from and network with engaged users of the world’s number one business platform.

The “Mission Control” team is John Espirian, Jeremy Freeman and Gus Bhandal. We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to Birmingham in March. Get your ticket today to find out how we’re extending the networking opportunities for all attendees.

Can’t make it in person? No problem. We’ll have fully captioned and transcribed video recordings of all our expert sessions as a separate on-demand option, and you can even watch along on the day via our livestream ticket. All in-person ticket-holders also get access to all the recordings from the day.

Who is the conference for?

If you’ve got a LinkedIn profile and want to take your LinkedIn presence to the next level, this is the perfect opportunity to learn from the apex operators of the platform.

We’re bringing together expert speakers from around the world to deliver a whole day of learning and networking on several aspects of LinkedIn.

Why a conference?

The online community on LinkedIn is fantastic but nothing beats the in-person experience of speaking with and learning from other specialists, power users and enthusiasts.

LinkedIn do not run their own conferences, so we’re bringing together some of the finest minds to dedicate a whole day to learning how we can achieve better results for our businesses.

LinkedIn is a fully fledged social network as well as the world’s number one business networking platform, and it warrants its own specialist conference. This is the first of its type in the UK, and we encourage all individuals and organisations to come along and learn from the best in the business.
