Now / Next / Why London / Where you need to be next week

by Contagious Team

Now / Next / Why is the annual Contagious forum

If you're going to be anywhere on the  Thursday 18 April, it should be at our Now / Next / Why event in London, EC1V. It's our annual all-day Contagious forum where we take an in-depth look at the most important and influential trends we think will be imperative to understand over the next 12 months. We're taking a look at what's going to matter the most, as well as how and why it's integral to your business.

It's an all-day event, packed with content, networking opportunities and a heap of expert guest speakers; and for the first time ever, Contagious will be unveiling original research at the upcoming Session.
Here's a glimpse of what we'll be looking at on Thursday 18 April:
Adaptive Innovation
Prioritising experimental practices to fuel innovation and growth is no longer a luxury, but a necessity for modern marketers

Beyond Screens 
Technology is breaking out from behind the glass. What does it mean for brands?

Every Second Counts 
Digital technology is widening the role and relevance of time in designing marketing and customer experiences; the most effective brands will be those that learn how to maximise their relevance in the intensifying competition for consumers' dwindling attention.

New Currencies 
Digital has reconfigured the way we think about 'value', both in terms of what we expect to receive from brands and the way in which we expect to pay them for it. How do brands go about navigating this new value exchange?

A Coding Generation
Today's children will become tomorrow's digitally-literate consumers. What does this mean for brands and agencies?
