Would you take one for the team?

In the wake of the cult-status Netflix documentary, "Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened", event producer Andy King found himself in an unfamiliar position - one that presented him with the difficult challenge of embracing internet virality, meme status, and social media influence.

Who can forget the Fyre Festival scandal? It feels like only that unaware millenial elites were stranded on a desert island promised with infinite luxury and exclusive partying, only to be left fighting for survival, desperately trying to source food, water, and shelter.

Join event producer, human meme and the new face of Evian water Andy King for a Fyre-side chat as he discusses:

Fyre Festival 

  • How Fyre Festival - a highly publicised, influencer-backed experience crafted entirely using social media - ended up being an undelivered dream

The power of social media/online influence

  • From man to meme overnight. How a singular moment in a moment in a documentary transformed Andy’s life and how he’s channeling it into positive change.

Inspiring the youth through sustainability in events

  • How he’s using his newly-amassed audience as a force for good by launching an initiative to support production sustainability

The talk will include a 60 minute moderated discussion followed by a 30 minute open Q&A.
