Claudia Winkleman, Gabby Logan, Professor Green and Tan France join the lineup for Advertising Week Europe

Advertising Week Europe has unveiled additional speakers from across the worlds of entertainment and business as part of its 2023 event programme, which takes place at Picturehouse Central, London, between 16-18 May 2023.

The organisers say that attendees can expect a stellar line-up of brands, founders, influencers, presenters, futurists and politicians, set to deliver an agenda spanning innovation, creativity and tech exploring the theme of this year’s Advertising Week Europe — ‘Step Forward.’  

In collaboration with talent agency YMU, TV personalities Claudia Winkleman and Stacey Solomon, alongside social media star and Clinical Psychologist Dr Julie, will share their personal experiences and recommendations around building successful high-impact partnerships between brands, talent and creators.

BBC sports presenter, Gabby Logan, will be joining former professional rugby star, Ugo Monye, to discuss how brands and content owners can successfully cut through with high-impact storytelling in sport. 

Advertising Week Europe will also see other famous names take to the stage including musician Professor Green, and food writer and presenter Gizzi Erskine, discussing their newest culinary venture.

Ancestry DNA will take to the stage with Bradley Walsh and Sue Perkins to explore their family histories on stage and learn how their genetic traits may have propelled them to success, in sessions presented by UTA. 

There will be a live styling session featuring Queer Eye star Tan France, who will style Bridgerton and Derry Girls actress Nicola Coughlan. There will also be a discussion on music, fashion, London culture and how to reach a Gen Z audience with rapper Central Cee.

In-person attendees will also be able to enjoy Advertising Week Europe’s invite-only leadership breakfasts at Ronnie Scott’s, a series of Culture & Commerce lunches at BAFTA debuting with PWC and the Media Trust, and the Future is Female Awards in partnership with LinkedIn — which will recognize the industry’s outstanding female leaders. The agenda kicks off each morning with a standout discussion on the Great Minds stage, including ‘This House Believes the Golden Age of Advertising is Over’.
