Webinar Overview

From 90210 to Gilmore Girls, there are decades of media representations of spring break. But as we know, Gen Zs do things differently – and their college vacation periods are no exception. 

Join three Gen Z college students for an in-depth and frank discussion about what spring break looks like for Gen Z. As a marketer, you’ll come away with an accurate perception of this legacy social event – and understand how to put your brand at the center of it all. 

We’ll cover: 

  • The myths vs the truths – 73% of Gen Zs think that spring break media representations are inaccurate, so we’ll hand over to our panel to share what it’s really like. 
  • The spending habits – from the heavy hitters like travel and food, to the sectors helping students to look and feel their best when spring break rolls around, our panel will share examples of what’s caught their attention in the past. 
  • Spring break personas – there’s no typical college student – which means there’s no typical spring break experience. Learn the different paths students might take, from international travel to volunteering weeks.
