We’ve long trumpeted the exciting, eclectic creative scene in Barcelona and now a new event talking place in March will harness this energy with an array of international speakers. The Internet Age Media, or IAM Weekend, promises to connect “the ecosystem that is shaping the future of design, fashion, technology, visual arts and music, from a media perspective.”
It’s an admirably ambitious mission and one which sets this event apart from many of the others on the creative conference calendar. This year’s theme is evolution, “exploring questions about media fragmentation, content curation and the rise of niche communication” and the speakers include Booooooom’s Jeff Hamada, NOWNESS’ Anne Bourgeois-Vignon, Offscreen’s Kai Brach and our very own Alex Bec. They’re joined on the programme by the likes of Filip Visnjic of the Creative Applications Network, Katie Dreke, global brand director, advanced concepts at Nike, and Julius Wiedemann, director of digital publications at Taschen.
The 300 delegates will be able to enjoy talks, workshops, masterclasses, networking opportunities, roundtable dinners and outdoor events over the three days, which aims to initiate ongoing conversations between the key players.
