Recap: XOMAD #InfluencerLed Uprising

Celebrating the #InfluencerLed Uprising.

On Friday the 13th #teamXOMAD celebrated the beta launch of our new tech platform in downtown Los Angeles. 500+ influencers gathered in an industrial warehouse to usher in the #InfluencerLed uprising. 

A haunted walkthrough showcased zombie madmen and made a statement about the end of the madmen era of scripted marketing…and earned a lot of “Oh hell no’s”.


We get it. The 60’s mad men advertising freaked us out too.

From the invite list, to live art, special effects makeup demonstration, music, food vendors, and cocktail menu, every detail of the event was curated by influencers and embodied XOMAD’s commitment to influencer creativity and authenticity. Influencers tagged brands they want to work with, and displayed them on an interactive art piece and call-to-action called the tree of creative intention

We had an amazing time and hope you did too (though it definitely looked like it!). We are stoked to kick off the influencer-led era with our new collaborative platform. Can’t wait to see what you create on it!
