BREAKING DOWN
TO BUILD FORWARD

RETHINKING ENTRENCHED DYNAMICS OF THE BRAND BUSINESS

It's time to break free from all of the old mantras of brand building. In an era of near-constant upheaval, what's working and what should we let go? Where do we push forward and where do we tear down?

At this year's foremost brand-strategy conference, Brandweek will convene the marketing leaders of today and tomorrow to drill down on the business of brands: the personalities, products, services and concepts that distinguish one company from another. We'll unpack case studies that examine the challenges, the opportunities and the value of brands and their force in driving communities of common values, cultural shifts, and, ultimately, business growth.

Set against the vibrant backdrop of the desert, you'll embark on a four-day journey of discovery that will equip you with the insights, inspiration and connections with industry and cultural power players to drive brand, personal and professional growth.

ADWEEK’s Brandweek brings together many of the top practitioners from the world's leading brands to interact, inspire creativity and create action. Whether you are part of an online startup or entrenched international organization, this conference will spark new ideas to help you elevate your brand and expand reach in new and relevant ways.

The 2023 Speaker Lineup

Brandweek was unlike any event of its kind.
From CMOs and CEOs to Academics, you can mingle
with people from leading brands while sharing ideas and visions
in a casual yet fun environment.

This was by far the best professional event I have ever attended. The speakers and content were fantastic. The community that Adweek has cultivated is helpful, optimistic, supportive, intelligent and kind. This is an event you need to attend!

BRANDWEEK BUZZ

A can’t-miss event for anyone serious about brand marketing.

Brandweek is an amazing event for any/all those who truly must be in the know—stay connected with the clients, the colleagues and innovation in our ever-changing world.

A transformative experience that solidified my beliefs about the future of our industry.
Most valuable industry event I've ever attended. Speakers and content were top-notch. Location and venue were superb.
Brandweek exceeded my expectations. To be in a room with some of the best marketers in the world — and to hear the similarities between our challenges and our stories — was incredibly inspiring. I came back to my office full of ideas and insights to guide the team.
Brandweek provided brand marketers with vision, inspiration and real-life examples to tackle the unknown with conviction.
It's the best place to talk about the importance of brand without all the clutter and concerns of day-to-day work.
Marketing conferences are a dime a dozen, so to deliver an industry event that is meaningfully elevated and differentiated is a tall order, and one which Brandweek delivered in spades.
I would describe BRANDWEEK in one word: EXTRAORDINARY.
It's hard to justify time away from daily responsibilities but Brandweek was curated in a way that over-delivered my expectations. I made valuable connections and learned a lot including ways to improve our business. It really felt like a community of peers openly sharing opinions and insights, and the social aspects were really fun and everyone was just so nice which made connecting with new people really easy.
Brandweek was amazing! The speakers were dynamic and diverse. I captured many gems for my marketing toolbox from the panel of leading and seasoned marketers!
