The power of storytelling for children well-being

Imagine a media environment where the reach and strength of the stories we tell were used to create social value and promote children well-being. We invite you to embark upon the world of storytelling and explore together how, through example and inspiration, the media industry and everyone of us involved, can become a powerful agent for change and contribute to a more inclusive society.

Let’s get personal: streaming intelligence at work

As media and technology continues to evolve in unexpected, exciting ways, one thing is for certain: personalisation is the future. Find out how the brands and platforms that are personalising with a purpose are earning their users’ trust and understand about Spotify’s approach to personalisation through their streaming intelligence — unique consumer insights derived from music listening behaviour. For marketers, this data presents a unique opportunity to connect with the right audience in the right moment and win.

Humanising your brand: why brands need to embrace empathy

The times of simply stocking shelves with your products and letting people know it’s there are long gone. We, as marketers, have had to think like our consumers and engage with them in much more creative ways. But now, if brands are to thrive, they can no longer sit on the sidelines of social issues – brands need to have a social conscience in order to truly connect with their customers.Recent research has shown that 70% of millennials say they are willing to spend more with brands that support causes or align with their own values. And millennials, as of this year, are spending more than any other generation. So, how do you make the step to have an authentic, heart-felt social message that is true to your brand and resonates with your audience? Join Adriana Grineberg, Facebook’s Regional Director, and Luciana Resende Lotze, SVP Marketing Latin America and Caribbean at Visa, as they discuss Visa’s Causas campaign, and why doing good is good for your business.  

Microsoft transparency & trust: a case study

As automation and artificial intelligence continue transforming the advertising industry, publishers and their technology partners are undoubtedly presented with new quality and transparency challenges. But how can publishers stay ahead of the pack ensuring access to brand-safe, curated, and highly viewable programmatic inventory?

Content that converts: master your native advertising success

  • Branding vs. performance campaigns - What's the right mix for advertisers?
  • The impact of video and transferring dollars from TV to digital
  • Attribution and KPIs: why working with a last-click model is not always the right answer

Scaling visual content creation across channels and borders

As Mary Meeker outlined in her 2017 internet trends report, adults are spending an average of 3+ hours per day looking at digital media on mobile devices. It’s no surprise that this behavior is creating a new paradigm, driving mobile ad spend and an increasing demand for engaging content with shorter time frames to get it done. In this session, Juliette Cuijpers, Senior Director at Shutterstock, addresses the problem of how brands have more options today to create content, yet are not set up to create content at scale. Actionable takeaways include how to scale content across multiple channels, learning which channels to prioritize for maximum engagement, and types of content that will resonate with customers.

Turning “likes” into brand impact: how to capture the power of social media in Latin America

It’s not enough for consumers to see your ads— you need to connect with them emotionally to have real brand impact. We’ll explain how to engage the Latin American audience with a branded content campaign that changes perceptions and drives purchase. Don’t miss these insights honed from Turner’s 700+ social advertising campaigns, launched from leading properties like Esporte Interativo, CNN, TNT, Cartoon Network and Great Big Story

TV real-time engagement: leveraging existing technology to optimize marketing outcomes

As people drastically change the way they consume video content, new challenges emerge for television. Beyond continuously improving the viewer experience and quality of content, upgraded metrics and analytics tools are essential, especially now that variables such as engagement are vital for brand’s marketing outcomes and ROI. Discover how partnerships between media and research companies are using top existing technologies from other fields to pave the way to more futuristic metric systems. From the use of “health-related” wristbands to real-life environment data collection, and all the way to “engagement spillover” these new tools will be at the core of marketing planning and optimization. Furthermore, they’re here to prove TV is anything but dead.

The creative revolution: the new storytelling

With the rise of mobile and AI, advertising has never been more personal or engaging before. Yet we continue to think like we did 10 years ago. In an age when our eyes spend more time looking at our mobile screens than TV, 80% of ads that run on mobile are recycled from TV with no optimizations or consideration for the digital user experience. Same applies for our metrics to success, there's more to reach and frequency like P&G expert, Alejandro Betancourt, will explain under precision reach, brand equity and sustainable advertising. From making shorter content without compromising branding, to optimizing ads with sound on/off mobile cues, it is an exciting time to be in advertising. Innovation and insights sit at the cross-roads for growth in digital. Dynamic creative optimization has never been easier to produce at high scale, quality and measurability. Thanks to an abundance in data and connectivity, digital campaigns can yield the same if not higher returns than TV alone, and Eric Tourtel from Teads will tell us all about it.

How a beer brand is breaking category codes

Skol, a Brazilian beer brand, part of the ABInbev portfolio, and one of the biggest beer in the world is breaking down all local category codes – based on traditional and often chauvinistic behavior – to maintain its bold and pioneering essence, leading key conversations and movements in the society.

Reinventing marketing as a force for good: P&G´s approach to gender equality

Gender equality is a priority at P&G. In this session, Alex Betancourt will explain the business case behind Gender Equality, and walk the audience through the strategy P&G is deploying globally, and more specifically in Latin America, from its three main pillars: advertising and brands, corporate programs, and internal engagement. The session will present current best approaches and work the company is advancing to drive gender equality as a core pillar of its diversity strategy

Sube la marea: the power of brands’ engagement

What is a brand's role in building an anthem to celebrate national pride for a historic achievement like qualifying for the world's greatest sporting event, and how a big idea powered by data-driven marketing helped connect an entire country of people through music, sport and wanderlust

Start with relevance and meet the value

Agencies and clients now understand the power and value that starting with the right audience in the right mindset is how a content can be relevant and connect with what matters to them. Start the spark with them, then you can complement with other media.

The new relationship: How tech companies and media owners are building strategic partnerships

As advertising goes deeper into the fourth media revolution we realize it's not the rules but rather the game itself that is changing. The fragmented media landscape once established by adversary competitors is now blurring into strategic business partnerships between the so-called 'frenemies' as a result of the evolution of the marketing industry in the digital age. Successful alliances between tech companies and media owners prove to be effective in closing the gap on issues around data, reach, targetisation, safety and video content demand. These partnerships evidence how today's game is all about pledging allegiance to one kingdom only: brands.
