What does Latin America mean for a European superpower?

Understand the challenges and opportunities for Latin based businesses in Europe. What areas does Latin America lead the way, and what can Europe learn from this? How is Latin America perceived by the rest of the world in terms of business, culture, economics and politics?

Be bold, be brave, be inclusive: how much does LATAM media represent society

OOH and the connected consumer

How OOH continues its transformation journey, adapting to the increasingly complex digital media space and always pursuing the interaction with consumers to continue allowing brands to meet the desired audience

The attention economy

Attention is a scarce resource and it's the fundamental core of what all creators of digital content - from publishers, to advertisers, to platforms and beyond - are seeking. Viewability and humanity are pre-requisites to meaningful engagement and measured attention, but they're just the beginning. Just as attention paid across digital channels continues to morph, so too must the way the industry transacts.

Mobile advertising: challenges and solutions

Mobile advertising is the only channel today that connects shoppers to brands and bridges digital investments with real-world results. How can advertisers make the most of this powerful channel and gain user acceptance while driving business KPIs?

Stop, look and listen – how to truly engage with millennials

Snapchat and IMS will explore the challenges of connecting with a generation of people whose habits, behaviours and trends are evolving by the day and how advertisers can use one of the most engaged platforms in the world to connect to the millennials of Latin America, and not only that but provide an ROI that the most cynical of bosses will find hard to ignore.

Getting media right

The Unreachables

Who are The Unreachables? They’re a growing audience of people who aren’t tracked—and therefore can’t be targeted or measured—with traditional tools and platforms. They consume media on mobile devices and OTT. They’re “cord cutters” and “cord nevers.” And they represent tremendous buying power for brands.

Future of measurement

Marketing effectiveness, challenges and opportunities to optimize media investments.  Investigating the current methodologies, such as marketing mix modeling, and the evolving landscape of this type of analysis to drive business decisions.

Why branded content is key to engage with the new breed of sports fans

P&G delivers real personalization through Voice activation

Join P&G + iProspect as they share live demos of how brands are grappling with Voice Activation throughout the consumer journey. The evolution of technology and human behavior has given marketers more opportunities to connect with their audiences than ever before. In an effort to accomplish the desired one-to-one communication at scale, brands have entered the journey of simplifying the customer experience through connecting the dots between all points of data. In this context, there is a new player that will finally allow brands to do just that: digital assistants. Powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning, digital assistants have the ability to help brands steer away from mass media messages and onto relevant targeted and completely personalized messaging.

The rise of the bots

Chatbots and intelligent messaging have changed how business takes place in a mobile-first world, making it the new wild West for brands. We have moved past the stages of basic chatbot implementation. Now we have sophisticated tools for advertisers to acquire chatbot users, and grow their audience. Ultimately, these new tools enable engagement, create a conversion. These integrations remove friction from commerce and empower brands to build 1-1, real, and meaningful connections with customers. It's personalization at scale.

In this new world, our relationship with technology will change forever. We will, both virtually and biologically, Merge together.

As on demand begins to take an ever increasing grip on the TV eco-system digital video is coming into its own and engaging with consumers across the region. The variety of platforms and devices mean that a new set of rules are coming into play as consumers begin to view live events in ways that were previously unheard of.
