Independent business consultancy Ingenuity London is heading back to Amsterdam for its second European event on 16 October.
Set up in 2005 by Chris Kemp, Ingenuity London is made up of nearly 50 team members “making business for business” by matching world-famous brands with marketing services agencies.
The event will focus on video content and aims to facilitate opportunities for brands and agencies in this area, from creative, strategy and production, to animation and tech.
This year the event will be held at DoubleTree by Hilton Amsterdam Centraal Station. The previous event was held at Amsterdam’s Movenpick Hotel and brought 12 brands and 12 agencies together.
Organisers tell CMW they are anticipating 14 agencies and 14 brands to attend this second event in October.
The event format allows brands to meet agencies that would not ordinarily be on their radars. Brands confirmed for the event this autumn include Amazon, Unilever, BOSE, Adidas and Collistar.
The return to Amsterdam is part of a wider expansion for the Ingenuity events team, with an event in New York planned for 2020.
Charlie Dudgeon, Head of European Events at Ingenuity, says: “Our last event in Amsterdam enabled several collaborations between brands and agencies, so we were keen to return with a bang. The need for brands to meet and work with both European and UK-based agencies is constantly growing and since our last event in June, we’ve noticed this demand from brands even more. We are excited to be looking for great new agencies to help take our event model to higher places.”
Brands and agencies can still sign up for the event by contacting Charlie for more information.
