Campaign Breakfast Briefings provide the marketing community with thought-provoking opportunities to learn about where our industry is heading next.

The Year Ahead: navigating uncertain times in 2019

What does 2019 have in store for an advertising and marketing industry already grappling with budget pressures, the fundamental re-engineering of established business models and the economic uncertainties of Brexit?

Campaign’s first Breakfast Briefing of the new year will explore the challenges and opportunities of our rapidly reshaping industry. From what the wider economic outlook means for consumer spending, to the new efficiency strategies that marketers are now exploring; from in-housing, to the shrinking agency marketplace; from what the management consultants will do next, to the new agency model: it’s going to be another bumpy year.

We can’t promise that attending our Breakfast Briefing will be a completely smooth the ride, but you’ll find plenty of oil to salve the frictions of 2019. So buckle up and join us on 9th January at Regent Street Cinema to get your 2019 off to the best possible start. All delegates will receive a print copy of 'The Year Ahead' on the day.
