The Bumble Hive: London

Bumble, the female-first connection platform where over 23 million users come together for love, friendship and now networking, has announced the highly anticipated launch of Bumble Bizz. Bumble’s fresh take on networking, with an emphasis on opportunity over job hunting, is the first to bring the “swiping” and “women first” experience to professional connecting.

On 27th & 28th October 2017, Bumble will launch The Hive: London, a two-day networking and brand experience to celebrate the launch of Bumble Bizz. Bumble will takeover Brown Hart Gardens, just off Oxford Street, to curate a series of live panels, wellness classes , workshops with some of the most impressive women in business.  The space will also offer respite and immersive experiences throughout the two days.


The Hive will play host to a series of career-focused panels and wellness experiences to help our users network in a unique and special environment.

This will teach guests how to grow their online social influence effectively  with key insights, tips and tricks they can use for themselves.

2. Increasing Your Creativity: A lesson in Typography 

Guests are guided through the layers of an experience that will inform and entertain, learning why fonts matter, how they can reflect a person’s personality (and CV), and how fonts can also be paired with smells and tastes to impact preconceptions.
