As news about the advertising industry continues to be depressing with clients cutting budgets, taking work in-house and generally questioning the value of advertising and ad agencies, this presentation will highlight six new types of creativity that can inspire a modern creative revolution and bring prestige back to the agency business. But, it requires acknowledging some deep changes occurring with clients and consumers that are forcing agencies to adapt or die. And the starting place for adaptation is recognizing where creativity still retains the power to drive brands and deliver growth.

Brands face a ‘Bermuda Triangle’ when it comes to connecting with consumers: They LACK THE DATA and tools needed to plan against an increasingly untrackable audience, the content they can reach audiences in is often low-quality at best or FRAUDULENT AT WORST and consumers are increasingly AD-BLIND anyway, addicted to apps and utilities.

As Artificial Intelligence continues to progress, both the tech capabilities and the human fears are on the rise. While AI is expected to create 15 million new jobs over the next 10 years, experts also anticipate 25 million jobs will be replaced by automation in that time period. Beyond affecting the labor force, AI stands to alter our society through changes in transportation with the likes of automated cars, advancements in the military with drone developments, and a redesign in healthcare with automated diagnostic and treatment capabilities. Kick off the Cognitive & Machine Learning Track with a thoughtful debate on the risks and rewards of the technology set to transform our lives, for better or worse.

The passion of sport is never more apparent than during the World Cup. As the 2018 competition approaches, learn how fans participate in the games, get insights into viewership ratings, and hear from a broadcaster and sponsor on the football phenomena of the decade.
Streaming services have become all the rage, offering subscription models to eliminate advertising. This opportunity is concerning for creators attempting to distribute their content, raising many questions. How does a company generate revenue through advertising? Are we training new generations of video viewers to watch without brand messages? Will that make digital video consumers hostile to pre-roll, in-stream banners and the like? What will that mean to the YouTube’s, Vimeo’s, and Facebook Live’s of the world? Panelists discuss the new world of video and how streaming services are changing the game for advertisers and viewers alike.

In a bid to engage those who are switching off from ads, more brands are beginning to act like commissioners - creating and commissioning content that their consumers are actively seeking out. As an industry, branded entertainment is something we are becoming increasingly familiar with. Most of the big changes surrounding this trend over the last few years have resulted in the emergence of editorially-led agencies and production companies who are turning the traditional advertising supply chain model on its head. These new creative shops are using their networks and expertise to approach communication from an audience-first perspective. With fierce debate over the effectiveness of branded entertainment vs a traditional commercial approach, what is the most successful way to create engaging content?

Today, technology is an inseparable part of our lives. One in five people is never offline. Billions more keep their smartphones glued to their sides, 24 hours a day.
But, as both hardware and software become smarter, we will start to move beyond screens. A new paradigm will emerge, which will see our relationship with technology change forever. Virtual assistants will autonomously organize our lives, bots will run businesses and our brains will become super-charged via a connection to the cloud.

CEOs have entered a golden age of opportunity in which to tell their company story and join the conversation. This new era is marked by the recognition that CEO engagement is particularly critical to corporate reputation and is facilitated by high demand for content to help grow the business. Today’s CEOs are expected to be seen and heard and to be on the scene internally and externally and digital can make the difference, helping to manage the whole chain of reputation from monitoring to positioning with mass precision.
All brands need to understand the importance of content marketing. At this point, however, few know and understand the best way to create an effective content strategy, which manages to direct traffic to websites in a much cheaper way than paid traffic.
This discussion will dive into practical cases of how you can achieve a successful content marketing strategy.
