In an age of increasing automation and digitization, the real connections between humans are becoming fewer and further between. Individuals are wary of brands advertising to them, of being manipulated by media, and this scourge of disconnection is tearing at the fabric of society at large.

Coming together to celebrate and re-integrate is such an instrumental aspect of being human. How can we ensure that the authentic connections of days of yore aren't a relic of the past?

Brands big and small are trying to capitalize on this need to connect authentically, but some merely pay lip service to this idea while some succeed at creating a true community that serves the larger mission of the brand.

Come hear from some of the visionaries that are prioritizing people and the connections therein.
