THE INDIE SUMMIT 2020

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

The world of marketing and communications is changing as never before. The traditional agency holding companies are in long term decline. The roles of CMO’s and CCO’s are being questioned. Technology is driving an unprecedented fragmentation of the communications ecosystem. Change is happening faster than ever before.

But one thing has not changed: the agency which stays one step ahead of its clients is the agency which adds value and drives profitable growth for itself, as well as its customers, and their customers. The agency which is one step behind is condemned to a future of commoditisation, diminishing revenue and shrinking profits.

The Indie Summit is a unique experience: the only large scale global conference and networking event, exclusively for Owners, CEOs and Senior Directors of independent marketing and communications agencies.

It brings together agencies from all disciplines inluding creativity, advertising, public relations, media planning and buying and all forms of digitl communications. Content is imaginatively chosen and curated, to provide a unique perspective on how the marketing and communications ecosystem is evolving- and where we are all going next. If there is one conference an independent agency leader should not miss in 2020- this is the one.
