Facebook, Social Chain, Taco Bell and more: Here's what happened on YMS18 Day 1

YMS LDN is back, bigger and better than ever! We've had a fantastic day meeting people from across the youth marketing industry, and gaining insights and ideas from the best in the business.

Our top 5 moments from Day 1

Here are just a few of the highlights from Wednesday at YMS...

  • When over 1500 people descended on The Old Truman Brewery, met by jugglers, graffiti artists, singers, dancers, coffee, croissants and a warm welcome from the Voxburner team.
  • The brilliant debates on our Innovation stage, including the Food Trends panel where Pret, Taco Bell and other brands discussed why "good is the new cool" when it comes to food.
  • The awesome freebies and games in our exhibition area. Did you win Bitcoin from Social Chain or try UNILAD's tasty mac and cheese? 
  • When CROWD. brought out their influencer panel's surprise celebrity guest, Geordie Shore star Scotty T. Did you manage to get a selfie?
  • Our incredible, female-dominated CEO panel, where we got insights from business leaders at Facebook, The Dots, Hippeas and more.
