The next generation is poised to shape the future in significant ways. As a generation of change-makers, the more we learn about them, the more we can help them thrive through life and make their prospective worlds a better place. 

And that’s why our YMS LDN event has undergone a makeover. New year, new theme, new ideas. 

Enter: Futurescape by YMS.

Introducing Futurescape

Futurescape is the 2024 event that’s laser focused on the future. It’s your opportunity to hear from pioneers, experts, and empowered young people. 

With the online and offline worlds developing at an exponential rate, brands, and youth marketers need to do the same in order to thrive. That’s why Futurescape is future-focused and curious. It’s a marketing event that thrives on understanding, knowledge, and asking questions. 

Get ready to take your next learning further and beyond with Futurescape. Together towards tomorrow. 

What is Futurescape? 

An exploration into the future, Futurescape is set to be an immersive world of next gen learning. It’s the place for marketers, creators, strategists, and brand builders to work towards tomorrow, plugging into youth marketing like never before. 

Hear directly from Gen Z and experts as they speak about their own experiences and share knowledge, ideas, and insights. Futurescape brings passionate youth marketers together, and as a hub of networking and community, drives us to look forward.

Why have we made this change?

With over 10 years of experience under our belts, why the change? Richard Jackson, Head of Insights and Events at Pion, explains:

“Over the past 13 years, the YMS event has been cemented in uniting the youth marketing community. Whilst this still rings true today, we want the event to evolve at the same pace as the world around us. With this in mind, 2024 Futurescape is our vision for YMS looking forward. 

“With the launch of our exciting new brand Pion earlier this year, it felt like the right time to revisit the mission of YMS and what it means for the industry around us. When discussing this, the word future was at the heart of all our conversations. Considering that YMS is all around the future consumer, the future generation, this seemed the perfect opportunity to unite these elements.”
