Brandweek was a weekly American marketing trade publication.

First published in 1986 as Adweek's Marketing Week, the publication changed its name in 1992 after facing a legal threat from the UK's Marketing Week magazine. Brandweek covered the world of marketing from big-budget ad campaigns to under-the-radar guerrilla efforts. The publication is part of the AdweekMedia Group of magazines owned by The Nielsen Company. It published 46 print issues a year in addition to and a series of e-mail newsletters focusing on shopper, digital, Hispanic and green marketing. It was merged into Adweek in 2011.

Brandweek's flagship properties included Superbrands[2] and Marketer of the Year.[3]

In January 2009, it launched its blog Brandfreak,[4] which took an irreverent look at the world of marketing and branding.
