Elle has launched the Elle Weekender – a new interactive consumer event that will encompass fashion, beauty and wellness.
Taking place in November at the Saatchi Gallery, London, the Elle Weekender will be a three-day immersive event that will bring together a mix renowned and emerging brands to create a unique shopping experience and bring the bold content, culture and products within the magazine to life.
Activations will be housed across two floors of the iconic gallery and will include:
Victoria Archbold, managing director, events and sponsorship, Hearst Live, says; “Changing consumer habits means shopping is set to be driven by experiences and interactive technology rather than the act of buying. The Elle Weekender will enable personalised interaction with customers through unique installations, pop-ups and talks that showcase brands in an innovative way that we know appeals to Elle readers.”
Anne-Marie Curtis, editor-in-chief, Elle UK, says; “The Elle reader is smart, stylish and savvy. We know that they love to feel connected to the Elle brand and are influenced by our expertly curated content, so I am thrilled to launch the Elle Weekender which will enable readers to become fully immersed in the Elle world. With a combination of leading retailers, aspirational brands and insightful talks and sessions, the Elle Weekender is set to be an unmissable event.”
Tickets will be available to purchase in Summer 2018.
Hearst is a member of FIPP.

“That’s what I thought. I’m ready for this. And I was excited. I had spent five years in digital; I was excited to be able to return to the media I had fallen in love with, which was print. That was the thing that defined my decision to become a magazine person in the first place. I had been a maniacal print obsessive for my whole childhood. And spending those years in digital really helped me have perspective on consumers and consumer behaviour.” - Kate Lewis, chief content officer, Hearst Magazines14th Feb 2019 Features
