Most Contagious London 2022 /
Early-bird tickets to the best marketing event of the year are now on sale
At Most Contagious we’ll distil a year’s worth of advertising insights and trends into a day of inspirational talks designed to give you a creative edge in 2023.
No panels and no pointless celebrity guests – just meticulously curated content.
You’ll hear from bona-fide industry experts, learn about the most vital creative trends from Contagious’ strategists and editors, and get the inside story on the most effective, innovative and attention-grabbing campaigns of 2022.
And if you book your place before 30 September, you’ll get all that at our early-bird price of £450* (full price £800) if you’re a non-member, and £400* if you’re a member.
So join us at The Business Design Centre in London on 24 November for a day of cutting-edge creativity with like minded creatives, strategists and marketers.
And remember – the early-bird gets to learn…for less money than the not-so-early birds…which we’d guess would be peacocks…just because they look a bit indolent…this tangent was a mistake…buy tickets!
