Welcome to this special episode of Brand&New in Boston, Massachusetts recorded during INTA’s 2019 Annual Meeting. This unique event, a must for education and networking, is attended each spring by more than 10,000 members of the IP community and beyond, from over than 150 countries. So Brand&New could not miss it!
Today’s episode is dedicated to a generation of people born in the late 90s to early 2000, post-millenials, called Generation Z.  This cohort of millions of kids, teens, and young adults, exposed to social media and new techs in their upbringing, shall redefine the relationships with brands in the future.  That’s why INTA researched this group, and released a multi-country study, Gen Z Insights: brands and counterfeit products, which explores Gen Z’s relationships with brands and attitudes toward counterfeit products. Brand&New's guests are well-versed in this demographic and others.
