As a seasoned advertising professional counting more than 16 years he's a vocal voice for advertising and brands as a force for good and his book "Goodvertising" is the most comprehensive book to date exploring communication for good.

Topic:-

OVERVIEW


Advertising is being fundamentally challenged. Forward-thinking brands are turning away from empty sales pitches and snappy jokes to conversations about what matters to people and planet like water scarcity, unemployment and online privacy. In a radical transparent world there's no room for self-serving brands. Through global examples Thomas will show how brands are turning challenges into success stories where profit goes hand in hand with people and planet, which he dubs: Goodvertising.

He is a graduate in Econometrics and holds the diploma of the MRS. He has been a regular speaker at ESOMAR, MRS and other industry conferences and has won the best case study at ESOMAR congress. In 2009, he was awarded the MRS Fellowship for his outstanding contribution to the UK research industry. He has worked for two of the biggest global custom firms IPSOS and TNS. He established BuzzBack's European presence in 2007 because he recognised that clients were demanding a more agile and custom response to their needs, something that large agencies struggle to provide.


Topic:

OVERVIEW


It is a 'bitter pill' to swallow but marketing is, almost by definition, not authentic. Given the increasing demand for authenticity from consumers we thought it was time to explore this issue in depth. Are brands trying too hard to be "authentic"? Orare they being inauthentic at their attempts at being authentic? What does authentic even mean? Can you really have an authentic positioning? Can brands be successful presenting themselves to consumers in a real way? What might be the rewards of embracing authenticity? In this presentation Martin will share some research – from UK, USA, China, Brazil and France - exploring this thorny issue.

  1.  * Consumer perceptions, especially what comes to mind when authenticity is
  2.       mentioned?
  3.  * Visual and verbal cues that trigger associations
  4.  *  How products associated with authenticity make consumers feel and ways to
  5.       communicate or motivate behaviour
  6.  *  How to talk about and position within authenticity in a way that's meaningful


Martin will leave you with some valuable insights to enable you to look at authenticity in a balanced and considered way. In his book The Fourth Industrial Revolution to Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum says authenticity is the sensibility of 21st Century so it's much more important than a mere trend.

Rotem's current position at eyeo in business development puts him in charge of innovative partnerships with various ad-tech companies. Rotem is also a member of the Israel Bar Association and has a background in corporate and antitrust law.


Topic:

OVERVIEW


The rise of programmatic ads, rich media formats and advanced retargeting led to a peak of revenue earnings in the online advertising business. However, often unconsidered in this new approach are users, who face a poor UX which seldom respects privacy. Users, who choose ad blocking tools to opt out of this negative experience, can present a new opportunity rather than an obstacle allowing advertisers and publishers to create a sustainable second ecosystem on the web. Industry leaders who recognize this chance to adopt their advertising strategies based on user choice and user rights have the opportunity to increase their ROI and their products' image.

Main take-aways for the audience:
• Understand users' wish to browse the web without annoying ads

• Learn how to monetize this sophisticated target group

• Increase your ROI and your products' image by being part of a sustainable ecosystem that respects users' wishes

Proactive, performance-driven professional with over 16 years of experience leading innovative market-building initiatives in a variety of corporate (& volunteer) environments. Deep retail, entertainment, consumer sensing, media, digital and technology expertise. Thrives on delegated responsibility to tackle major growth challenges. Go-to executive for both strategy and implementation. Proven builder of key customer/partnering relationships, new business opportunities and professional networks in the dynamic and changing markets.
Proficiency in formulating, developing and implementing yearly business strategies to ensure attainment of revenue goals and profitable sell-through (EBITDA delivery)
Amit thinks that voice search and artificial intelligence are two important technologies/developments a smart marketer should keep his eyes upon.
Voice Search is undeniably going to change the future of search on Internet. It's fast, It's convenient, it allows you to search on the go, and it's just cool. Even better, as the technology behind voice search services like Siri, Alexa and Cortana etc improves, it's becoming increasingly reliable. Because of this, smart marketers are developing ways to tailor their search strategies for voice search.
Though the artificial intelligence is at its nascent stage, its future developments will help us amplify and catalyse the humans to do things better and faster. It's tempting to believe that artificial intelligence can do just about anything.

OVERVIEW


Innovation may not necessarily be about doing something new. Often it is a case of simply doing something better, perhaps using new technology. In starting to think and innovate with the mobile we do not always need to be 'blue sky', we can also take a hard critical look at the things we already do. In this presentation we outline a new approach to conducting product evaluations, both shelf tests and in-home usage tests.

Following this presentation, the audience will:
• Learn that mobile can deliver powerful consumer insights
• Be inspired to identify mobile opportunities when and where a fit exists
• Be amazed how motivated participants can be when undertaking product "missions"

OVERVIEW


Start-up marketing gives a whole new meaning to "finding balance." Building a marketing strategy in a start-up/small company can be both exhilarating and frustrating for this reason. On the one hand, you wrestle with limited resources and on the other, you have big expectations and goals to achieve. In effect, the marketing strategy must let you run before you walk. The trick is to support trailblazing growth, create future markets, yet stay nimble and disruptive.

  • • What makes start-up marketing exciting?
  • • Achieving accelerated growth
  • • The need of the hour is disruptive marketing

In Europe & US, 'Net Positive' image of a business is important to get customers. Are these brands adopting similar approach while marketing in the developing regions? There must not be replication of the use-and-throw economy or excessive consumerism like that of the affluent West. The true marketing potential may be in creating progressive and sustainable economies which have answers in conserving resources, using alternatives, societal upliftment, innovating sustainable solutions, and building clever campaigns to stimulate collective consciousness.

Take Away:
1. Be sustainable at the beginning yourself
2. Address the exigent need of moving consumers towards sustainable actions
3. Fluff is enough!
