Consumer Tribe Summit

The innovators, early adopters and tribes shaping trends for 2019 and beyond

The digital-native members of Gen Viz are constantly connected – plugged into multiple browsers not to hide from reality, but to create it anew.

Deeply averse to being marketed at, these post-Millennial teens are constructing their own authentic experiences, and in the process, building new communities, identities, loyalties and priorities. In this landscape, the meanings of status and luxury have changed, and brands that push aspirational, product-led strategies will struggle to be relevant.

Our new Consumer Tribes Summit presentation reveals the demands and desires of Gen Viz to help your business engage with this key consumer tribe that is sending ripples across other demographics. The presentation draws on extensive interviews with youth culture influencers and sector experts as well as quantitative analysis and brand case studies.

In this presentation we examine:


The preference for highly visual forms of communication, the self-driven hacker mindset, the voracious consumption and creation of online content, and transnationalism and multiracialism.


The proliferation of Kidpreneurs, a hunger for realness from brands, the embracing of instant messaging for more private communication, and the appetite for a healthy lifestyle.


The rise of the Post-body Mindset where personality comes first, a move away from financial accomplishment as the main signifier of success, and teenagers taking more control of broadcasting channels.


To develop platforms that match the hunger for interactive content and self-determination, to speak to teenagers in a tone of voice they are accustomed to, and to turn away from unrealistic beauty standards.
