Everything You Need to Know About the Lovie ‘In Collaboration’ Report

Our first-of-its-kind crowdsourced study unpacks what it takes to collaborate in 2024—with insights gathered from Europe’s brightest in digital

We’ve noticed a surge in creative collaboration across Europe. There’s an exciting synergy across our industry, with a rise in partnerships that span cultures, brands, sectors, and technologies.

Inspired by this, we’ve embarked on our first-ever listening tour across Europe to crowdsource insights for our upcoming ‘In Collaboration’ Report, set to release Tuesday, 9th July!

A collaborative study, we’re bringing together the top digital minds in Europe to gather their takes on what makes great collaborations tick, through ‘In Collaboration With’—our rich event programme of online surveys, in-person workshops, and LinkedIn Live sessions.

Here’s a recap of our conversations so far, with a few more details on the release of our community-led trend report.
