About the Festival of Media Global
Festival of Media Global was launched in
Venice in 2007 to worldwide industry acclaim. Drawing together the
global leadership of media agency networks with the most innovative
media owners and the world's most powerful and progressive
marketers, the Festival has become the premier forum of debate for
an industry undergoing profound structural change.
With "media" at its heart, the Festival of Media is
the only event that draws together themes such as branded content,
advertising and social media, free versus paid-for media models,
the future of measurement, procurement in marketing and
transformative consumer trends.
Known by some as "The Davos of advertising", the event attracts
leaders from international and pan-regional advertisers, media
agencies and media owners. It brings to the global industry a
cutting-edge conference, an exhibition for vendors and
technologists to promote initiatives to agencies and clients; as
well as a variety of networking and thought leader
2009, the Festival of Media launched a
Global Awards ceremony that is now one of the world's
largest advertising ceremonies by number of entries, attracting
work from more than 40 countries. Now in its seventh year, the
Global Festival - held in Rome, Italy for the first time - is
firmly established on the international calendar.
