Think Student Live, is the new event from Natives, launching this summer (June 19th, at Kings Place, London to be precise). We wanted our annual marketing show to be more connected to students, after all, they’re who we want to engage with. With that as our primary focus, Think Student Live was born; it will inspire and inform decision makers from both institutions and student-focused brands.

We’ve made the first release of tickets available, but be quick. With a massive 40% discount and just 25 remaining, they will not last long.  

We will be announcing our first speakers very soon, but expect some of the biggest platforms in the world, global institutions, big brands and our 2018 highlight, the live student panel. Oh yes, student marketers will hear, straight from the horse’s mouth, how students engage with social media and online adverts,  as well as their attitudes and feelings towards the sector and society.

As an agency, we ‘think student’ not only in our work but in our values too. The Think Student Live marketing show is all about arming student specialist marketers with unique insights to better engage with the student community. Our talks are going to be bursting with insight, poignant thoughts, engaging case studies and strategic advice.” Richard Campbell, Head of Marketing, Natives.

Tell me about this year’s theme…

Think Student Live: The right way to engage with your audience

Leave what you think you know at the door. No, seriously, leave it at the door! Institutions and brands need to be devising a marketing strategy based on the desires of students – this has never been more important. There isn’t room for error in making biased assumptions or predictions about the student market, or falling back on previous experiences. Your brand needs to be focused on engaging with students in the right way. This means on the right platforms, with the right messaging and at the right time.

Don’t shy away from technology. It’s easy to assume that incorporating artificial intelligence,   programmatic media, and automation prevents brands from becoming a student first; actually, you should be combining technology with a market-orientated approach to maximise results.

Think Student Live is going to help you achieve this. Delegates will leave feeling focused, ready to make their marketing strategy truly orientated towards the student audience.

So, get ahead of the game and grab your tickets now. Please get in touch if you have any further questions and we look forward to welcoming you all on the 19th June.
