The Rise of Geek Culture


Imgur's VP of Marketing, Steve Patrizi, will walk through key learnings from "The Rise of Geek Culture", a national survey commissioned by Imgur from millennial research firm, YPulse. This entertaining, meme-filled presentation will bring to life a tastemaking, affluent group that is really hard to reach and influence.


Here's a sneak peek at some of the findings we'll share:

  • Geek culture is going mainstream, and being a geek means something much more positive than it has in the past.
  • 1 out of 4 Millennials identify as being hardcore “geeks,” and they’re very different from their non-geek counterparts.
  • Geeks are some of the most influential cultural trendsetters, with enormous purchasing power, but they're one of the hardest segments for marketers to reach.


Drinks and appetizers will be served at 5:30pm, presentation starts promptly at 6:30pm (length is 45 mins), with more mingling time after.
