Contagious Live May / content announced

by Kristina Dimitrova

Last month we kicked off our new event series, Contagious Live, to champion the very best work from around the world. Now the second installment is just around the corner, so here’s what you can expect on 17 May.

We’ll start the evening with a keynote from our head of trends, Katrina Dodd, who will discuss how the concept of masculinity is changing. She will also outline the opportunities brands have to embrace a more inclusive notion of masculinity in their advertising.

Next, Contagious acting editor Patrick Jeffrey will sit down with Loz Horner of Lucky Generals to discuss the insights and strategy behind Hostelworld’s latest campaign, featuring the diva of all divas, Mariah Carey.

The final section of each Contagious Live is a battle of creative ideas pitched by the Contagious team. And the winner will get all the bragging rights associated with a competition of this stature.

Then, as per usual, we'll wrap up with stimulating conversations over food and drink!

Join us on 17 May at We Are Social, 14 Finsbury Square, EC2A 1BR. Doors open at 6pm, for a 6:45pm start. Tickets are £25.
