Business development consultancy Ingenuity London has announced the upcoming launch of its first ever European new business event – Video Content Connect – at Amsterdam’s Movenpick Hotel on 5 June.
The event will focus on video content, aiming to facilitate opportunities for brands and agencies in this area. Great engaging video content is now one of the, if not the most, important marketing assets for brands across the globe. Covering everything from creative, strategy, production, animation and tech, the event will introduce brands looking to meet agencies who can create video content that helps them engage, educate and inspire consumers and customers alike.
Amsterdam was selected due to the number of notable brands headquartered there, the wealth of creative agency expertise in the city and proximity to London for UK agencies. Ingenuity’s move to take its new business events to Europe is part of a wider global expansion strategy for the company – including an event in New York planned for September – as it looks to build on continued success and growth in the UK.
The events are a crucial part of the new business consultancy’s integrated business development model that also comprises lead generation, content, PR, insight, agency recommendations and brand partnerships. This unique ecosystem gives Ingenuity a holistic and in-depth knowledge of the market which helps the team deliver intelligent, viable and timely opportunities for brands and agencies.
Charlie Dudgeon (pictured), head of European events at Ingenuity, commented: “After a decade of refining our events in London they have gone from strength-to-strength. We are looking forward to taking this proven format to new markets. Amsterdam is a creative hub for brands and agencies making it the ideal city in which to launch our events outside the UK.
“We’ve seen an increase in brands from European headquarters flying over to London to attend our events over the past couple of years, so now is the perfect time for us to bring the event to them.”
