Watch Advertising Week Europe Live


Can't make it to Advertising Week Europe? Catch the live stream from the Sun Room right here - we're on at 11:30am. It's the first day of Advertising Week Europe in London! Four days of incredible back-to-back talks, workshops and networking sessions from the marketing and advertising industry's best will be heading to Picturehouse Central. And we're chuffed to be taking part for the second year in a row.

Last year we spoke about what brands and agencies need to be ready to work with startups, inviting along some of our dedicated brand and agency representatives and Stephen Lepitak from The Drum to moderate. The discussion was a huge success, and the perfect segway into the Class of 2015 Demo Day just a few weeks later. This year we're doing things a little differently.

With the Class of 2016 Demo Day just behind us, we're looking forward to how startups can transform into scale-ups. What network of support is necessary for entrepreneurs to go from 0 to 100 while balancing the expectations of investors, co-founders, employees and customers? How do expectations change from being a hand-to-mouth company, to being a fast-growth company? What qualities should founders look at in mentors they will keep close for the rest of their days? We're discussing this at 11:30am Monday morning (that's today) live at Advertising Week Europe from the people who have done it before.

Guy Wieynk, CEO Western Europe at Publicis, Sarah Wood, Co-Founder & Co-CEO Unruly, Gabbi Cahane, Chairman of Multiple and our very own Rose Lewis, Co-Founder of Collider will be taking to the stage to discuss. They will then be joined by Emily Forbes, Co-FOunder of Seenit, Andrew Foyle, Co-Founder of Miappi and Ofri Ben-Porat, Co-Founder of Pixoneye - three Collider alumni who will be on stage for some live mentoring.

AWEurope is quickly approaching...

AWEurope banner  

In less than two weeks the Advertising and Marketing creatives will gather in Central London for a week filled with debauchery involving speakers, panels, conference style meetings, drinking, drinking and more drinking. But somewhere in between all of the drinking, there will be insight and new perspectives and inspiring talks and, hopefully, some amazing OOH, interactive, advertising. It's called AdWeek Europe. And New York is afraid because they're in for a shock at how established the marketing and advertising industries are in Europe. Particularly London. This is the place to be for all things MadTech. We're keeping it that way.

And as part of our mission to make London the beating heart of the MadTech ecosystem, we're getting up on stage and bringing some amazing people with us. And we're going to be talking about what we do - bringing in the people who do it everyday. Our ring leader Rose Lewis will be speaking alongside Alper Eroglu of Unilever, Paul Frampton of Havas Media and Nicole Yershon of Ogilvy & Mather. Stephen Lepitak of The Drum will be moderating  between these four powerhouses, asking the tough questions the audience wants to hear.

And we have some free tickets to give out to the panel. Are you interested in checking out what we do? Who our brand and agency partners are? How they might have worked with startups in the past and how they are doing it now - especially with new and innovative technologies popping up every other day. How do you work with a company who seems to be speaking in an unfamiliar dialect of English, we call it Tech Talk, and how do we work with it tomorrow?

Contact our Community Manager Ali at alexandra [at] if you want to come along. Tickets are limited, and on a first-come-first serve basis. If you're interested in the #MadTech scene, or thinking about joining us on the front-lines of the MadTech movement, get in touch!
