The Inside Track

The Inside Track
The International Advertising Association (IAA) is bringing back The The Inside Track. Designed to be an oasis of inspiration, each half day session takes you on a short trip into the mind of masters so that you can return to work refreshed, rejuvenated and inspired.

This time round The Inside Track tackles the challenges that brands are now facing as they roll out their digital strategies. Are Big Ideas still relevant or does technology drive the content? Which is more important, a strong brand message or an experience that keeps the target audience engaged?

Although each talk stands on its own, they are even more powerful taken as a whole, as each talk builds on the last to give you a cohesive picture of how to balance the brand’s messaging while fullling the audience’s needs for engaging and useful content.

Are Big Ideas Big Enough for Digital?
Is the Big Idea still relevant in the age of Digital? By right, they should be big enough to be expressed and experienced in all mediums. However, they sometimes get lost in translation when the digital team comes on board. In this seminar, you’ll hear how top CDs and ECDs from both ATL and Digital backgrounds deal with this when they inspire their teams (and themselves) to generate ideas.

Rethinking Digital Strategy
When ATL, BTL and digital campaigns are handled by dierent agencies, the digital strategy is sometimes treated as a separate spin-o that focusses on ad hoc analytics and KPIs instead of being an integral part of the overall brand experience.
In this session, our experts address how brands can integrate the role of digital into the brand strategy to give their customers a seamless experience across all platforms.
