Submit your paper before Fri 16 August and you could be winning hearts and minds on-stage at MAD//Fest London this November!

What are we looking for?
We want disruptors and innovators to fix an issue the industry need to get-to-grips with or pitch an idea that will transform the future of the industry. We don't want sales pitches, sanitised decks, meandering panels (that's right, no panels) and decks that are doing the rounds at other industry events. All sessions are no longer than 20 minutes. Your content should be punchy and to the point.

Our theme: Dare To Be Different
The definition of madness is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. But true innovation requires good ideas, leaving convention behind, taking risks, bravery, creativity, and frequently failure.

We all know that the world in which we live and the marketing and advertising game are changing fast.

Disruption, tech and cultural trends are changing the way we engage, experience, consume, buy, think, behave and structure organisations. Many established brands are feeling the strain and are looking to tech to remain relevant and successful. Emerging players plan to do things faster, better and cheaper.

Whether you're brand, agency, media owner, start-up or tech player, MAD//Fest is a celebration of the people and businesses who are pushing the boundaries of innovation and possibilities of marketing, advertising and disruptive tech.

Important information & advice
We work with an advisory board of industry leaders and select submissions that will deliver genuine value for our audience of brands, agencies, publishers and tech leaders.

We can't take incomplete submissions.

You must agree your content with MAD//Fest's Content Director prior to the event.

Solution & service providers
15% sessions are reserved for suppliers with genuine innovations, solutions and ideas who support MAD//Fest through sponsorship. We apply the same editorial principles to submissions from paid vendor sessions as the other 85% of independent sessions.

Agency/media/tech submissions: co-presenting clients
If you are an agency, media owner or tech provider and would like to be considered for a speaking lot at MAD//Fest, we strongly advise you to propose a brand client to speak alongside you. This is likely to be looked on favourably both in terms of selection, stage allocation and attractiveness to our audience.
