Can you wow a brand?

Can you fix brand business pain?

Can you pitch it in 3 minutes?

Introducing Brand Date, a new format that will challenge you to think creatively and put you in the spotlight at MAD//Picnic.

We’ll soon be announcing a series of live brand challenges where CMOs and client-side leaders will be asking for your help in easing business pains, doing things better and securing new opportunities.

The pitches are open to anyone. You could be a rising star at a brand, an agency network, a publishing powerhouse, a tiny tech start-up or a global madtech player.

If you’re selected, you’ll have the chance to pitch your big idea to the brand and a live audience. The most popular pitch wins an extravagant MAD//Picnic date with the brand (plus major kudos from brands and folk in the crowd).

Picnic + party

This isn’t just any picnic...This is a MAD//Picnic! Quite simply, there is no other invite-only picnic for the UK’s 500 top brands, media and tech leaders.

MAD//Picnic is a unique opportunity to ditch humdrum conferences and make sure you get to know the industry influencers and decision makers.

During the day, we’ll be giving out dozens of picnic baskets packed to the brim with goodies - you just need to choose a lunch partner (you won’t have to look very hard).

Like all good picnics, expect good conversation, music and a memorable experience spent meeting people, solving brand challenges and hearing from rockstar speakers.

When you’ve had your fill inspiring content and connections, we’ll be throwing an unmissable summer party in the garden where you can enjoy street food, entertainment and late night chat with the industry’s pacesetters and disruptors.

You’ll leave MAD//Picnic feeling energised, full to the brim with ideas and quite possibly a little bit tipsy…
