The Conclave will discuss and debate the numerous developments of the past decade that has changed the very fabric of marketing activities. Consumers are socially networked and value-conscious and have heightened expectations of how companies respond to their demands. Along with the challenges, however, are the opportunities – marked improvement in the understanding of consumer behaviour and socio-economic environment, and the emergence of data collection and analytical techniques that give marketers unprecedented access to previously hidden aspects of buying behaviour.
exchange4media Conclave will also explore how creative directors and media planners are coping with the current ubiquitous and volatile media landscape. There will be discussions on the challenges for media owners through a time of huge transformation where media channels are becoming more fragmented and the media consumer is more empowered than ever before, affecting the conventional publishing and broadcasting business models.
