our team on the ground


who is behind ZCannes

UTA Next Gen exists as a Generation Z consultancy & marketing agency run by real Generation Zers. We work with clients to more authentically & powerfully engage with young audiences through research, strategy, & implementation!  In order for brands to understand Gen Z, they have to talk to us, not about us. Last year we launched ZCON as the first ever conference with only Gen Z speakers. Over 500 influencers, business leaders, and change makers came together irl to empower the next generation & make change.
