Trevor Noah, Black Coffee, AKA, Nike & more named ‘Coolest Brands’ #GenNext2017

The annual Sunday Times Generation Next Youth Marketing Conference, Interactive Brand Showcase, Awards Ceremony took place on Thursday evening to reveal coolest brands of 2017.

Since 2004, Times Media has commissioned HDi Youth Marketeers to conduct the Generation Next Survey which polls youths aged 8 – 22 on what they believe to be “cool” or aspirational. The survey is conducted across more than 70 categories to determine the youth perception of brands, products, and celebrity.
The results of the survey are particularly relevant to brands and advertisers, with the Generation Next Youth Marketing Conference, Interactive Brand Showcase and Awards Ceremony attracting the attendance of SA’s leading business minds and marketers. The Awards ceremony in particular is increasingly where local celebrities choose to be seen, bringing glamour and huge appeal for their youth fan-base.
