Barbie / The Most Contagious Brand of the Year

For more than six decades, Barbie has been an inspiration, an icon, and a lightning rod. In 2023 that convergence drew new voices, sparking powerful conversations in a zeitgeist where Barbie, Beyonce, and Taylor Swift are celebrated as peers. 

How did Barbie do it? Mattel’s Nathan Baynard, VP Global Brand Marketing, Mattel, will reveal the human appeal of Barbie and how Mattel’s brands are evolving to lead in a whole new era.

Hilton / #HiltonForTheStay

When Hilton made a 10-minute TikTok, the hotel chain gained outsize attention by releasing content that flew in the face of what viewers expected from ads on the platform. In the session, the team behind the TikTok will reveal how it worked with influencers (including Paris Hilton) to create an authentic, engaging campaign that helped the brand rebuild its cultural relevance.

Marcus Collins For the Culture 

There is no external force more influential to human behaviour than culture, which makes culture the biggest cheat code for marketers or anyone with a vested interest in getting people to take action. With culture not only driving today’s consumption but also ushering the future of brand, this session is not to be missed.

Reasons to attend /


Learn about the trends and technologies that will shape the ad industry in the year ahead from Contagious’ expert editors and strategists, in a series of lively and case study-packed talks.


Understand the strategies behind some of the most innovative and effective campaigns of 2023, as the teams that created work give behind-the-scenes accounts of how they found their ideas and brought them to life.
