CogX attract countless high profile speakers to their event with 6000 handwritten invites
The CogX invite

CogX is the world’s foremost AI festival, enticing a crowd of around 15,000 high-profile politicians, researchers and businesspeople this year. But how have CogX managed to attract such distinguished attendees? With personalized handwritten invites.

The Facts

  • In 2019, CogX used Scribeless to send 3000 handwritten invites to high-profile people from all walks of life to speak at their event, recognising the value of a more personal invitation.
  • Scribeless handled the process in full, producing and mailing invitations throughout the US, UK and all around the world.
  • Not only did CogX use Scribeless for its invitations, it also sent out handwritten event follow ups to attendees to increase loyalty, and to provide a personal experience even after the event itself had finished.

The Results

  • Their first handwritten marketing campaign attracted so much talent that CogX came back to Scribeless the following year, impressed with the service and looking to go again in 2020:
"Given the incredible turnaround previously, I'd like to work with you again for our next campaign." - Amy Tsang, Marketing Manager
