‘Messy’ End to A MAD Week as Nudgestock partners with MAD//Fest
10 May, 2023
Nudgestock, Rory Sutherland and Ogilvy's behavioural science festival, will take place on the site of MAD//Fest London on 7 July with a 'Messy' theme.
Nudgestock, Rory Sutherland and Ogilvy's behavioural science fest, is to take over part of the MAD//Fest London site on Fri 7 July, thereby extending the inspiring content available to marketers during the week of MAD//Fest London (4-6 July).
Hosted by Ogilvy UK Vice-chair and MAD//Masters Co-founder Rory Sutherland, Nudgestock gathers the world's boldest thinkers to help marketers think like a behavioural scientist and celebrate counterintuitive ideas. 2023's theme is 'Messy'.
The partnership will see Ogilvy deliver a thought-provoking behavioural science deep dive on braving and embracing the ‘mess’ to complement MAD//Fest's programme focused on how creativity, innovation and marketing can help brands to 'Ride The Storm' of disruption that faces marketers in 2023.
“Join us on Friday 7th July at the Old Truman Brewery, London to experience the magic of Nudgestock in all its glory. You’ll learn how to think like a behavioural scientist as counter-intuitive ideas and impact-driving case studies are discussed, debated, and celebrated by the planet’s boldest thinkers,” said Sutherland.
“We’re excited to add a healthy dose of behavioural science and magic to round off a MAD week for marketers,” he added.
"We’re huge fans of Rory, Ogilvy and Nudgestock. Adding Nudgestock’s unique brand of behavioural science content to the mix is the perfect complement to the incredible line-up of brands, disruptors and entrepreneurs already speaking at MAD//Fest. Between ourselves, Nudgestock and The Alliance of Independent Agencies, who are hosting their annual awards bash at the show on 4 July, it's clear that MAD//Fest is emerging as a collaborative platform for the industry's top brands and agencies to explore the most topical issues, boldest ideas and outstanding work," said Dan Brain, MAD//Fest London's Co-founder.
"We now have almost an entire week for the industry’s top marketers to get their fix of creativity, content, innovation, digital advertising and behavioural science at the UK’s largest and leading gathering of brands. And with Rory & co at the Nudgestock helm on Friday 7 July, you can guarantee that it will be a lively, entertaining and thought-provoking finale to an inspiring week!”
