Future-facing topics covered at the one-day Most Contagious event will include:

DATA / We’ll look at the brands who’ve stopped talking about Big Data and started doing something with it, turning bits and bytes into actionable insights and new opportunities and pinpointing the creative and strategic advantages of data divination.

EMPOWERMENT / Whether putting tools in the hands of people who otherwise wouldn’t have access to them or taking a stance against social inequalities, brands are playing an increasingly active role addressing global issues. We’ll dig into how and why brands are helping people stand up and be counted.

CRACKING THE CONTENT CODE / 2014 was the year that brands finally got it right when it came to content, nailing distribution and storytelling to create properties that had as much appeal as unbranded content. 

MOBILE MESSAGING / Armed with hundreds of millions of users and astronomical growth projections, mobile messaging apps are fundamentally changing the communications landscape. We’ll show you how you can become part of this radical new conversation.
