What makes Sunday Times Gen Next?

Research Study

Keeping track of how youth interact with, and respond to brands is an ongoing process. Started in 2004, the Sunday Times Gen Next study undertaken by HDI Youth Marketeers is now the leading annual youth brand preference and consumer behaviour survey, polling over 5,500 youths aged 8 to 23. Results are released in the Sunday Times annually, and it culminates in a glittering awards event that recognises the coolest brands and celebrities.

Interactive Showcase

The Interactive showcase area allocated to brands at Sunday Times Gen Next allows them the opportunity to interact and engage with youth through various displays, activations and competitions. If your brand is serious about capturing the youth’s hearts and minds: this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Youth Marketing Conference

With the success of the inaugural Sunday Times Gen Next Youth Marketing Conference hosted in 2015, we will be hosting the fourth youth marketing conference this year where marketing gurus in the youth space gather to provide the audience with insight into how to crack this audience. The event will allow delegates to gain insights on the marketing trends within the youth space.
