In it’s 6th year the acclaimed MOST CONTAGIOUS on Wednesday, 6 December 2017 gathers pioneers from the world’s most successful brands, agencies, media organisations and technologies to reveal the truly ground breaking campaigns, innovations and trends of 2017. MOST CONTAGIOUS brings this all together on one day, providing tightly focused insights and powerful inspiration for a successful 2018 and beyond. With talks by industry experts, leaders from major brands, world-class agencies and disruptive start-ups, plus our innovation awards, bespoke breakout sessions and our immersive exhibition showcasing the cutting edge of media, marketing and technology, this is a unique day that creatives, marketers and change makers simply can’t afford to miss.


Agenda

Most Contagious identifies the most important issues, campaigns, brands, agencies and trends impacting modern marketing today. We reveal the biggest threats and opportunities to help you navigate the complex landscape and win in 2018.
Key themes include: the rapidly growing impact of brand and corporate transparency; the merge of politics and culture; the realisation of artificial intelligence in creativity and the need for long-term thinking amongst brand owners.
