Welcome to the world of NO/BS Events – where authenticity reigns supreme, and opportunities abound for mutually beneficial partnerships.

We're not just another event company; we're a dynamic team of multi-award winners known for orchestrating top-tier conferences, workshops, and meetups, tailored exclusively for the digital, creative, marketing, and tech industries.Our track record speaks for itself. We consistently curate events that not only sell out but also attract a dedicated following due to our refreshingly raw, unfiltered, and brutally honest approach to the ever-evolving world of digital, design, marketing, and tech.

The brainchild behind this innovative venture is none other than Jason Soultan, a highly respected Designer, Digital Agency Owner, and serial Entrepreneur. In 2019, Jason embarked on a mission to disrupt the traditional conference scene. He envisioned an event that would defy the norms and deliver a no-frills, limitless, and authentically straightforward experience.

Let's be honest; industry events represent a significant investment. It's often a gamble for both attendees and partners to choose the right event to align with. Jason, with his two decades of experience in the digital realm, has been to his fair share of conferences, workshops, and networking events. However, many of them left him wanting more – actionable insights, genuine honesty, and inspirational narratives.

So, he decided to create events that would truly make a difference, starting with the groundbreaking NO/BS Conference in 2020. This event was an unfiltered celebration of the digital world, featuring creative minds, directors, designers, and industry leaders sharing their authentic stories and professional journeys.

Even amidst the uncertainty of the pandemic, our conference not only sold out but also garnered multiple awards along the way. It became evident that we were onto something special, and the industry at large took notice.

Today, we're not just stopping at one successful conference. We've hosted a second large-scale event and numerous workshops and networking events across Australia, Dubai and Vancouver. Our ambitions now extend to opening up exciting possibilities for partnerships and collaborations on a global scale.

We invite you to join us on this journey of authenticity, creativity, and inspiration. Whether you're an attendee seeking valuable insights or a potential partner looking for an event that aligns with your values, NO/BS Events offers a unique platform where everyone can thrive and make meaningful connections. Together, we can add a lasting impact in the digital, creative, marketing, and tech landscape. Your presence is valued, and we look forward to having you as part of our NO/BS community.
