12.11.2015 - Creating a live and vibrant mobile advertising market in South East Europe
As most local advertisers and agencies still consider mobile advertising as something that will come in the future, last year NTH Group organized a conference with the idea to educate the market and boost mobile advertising growth. The progress has been evident on the market since the first conference, so we are continuing with the second edition of MAD Conference.
MAD Conference program
This year we will split the program in two sections. The first one will be focusing on what is happening today and tomorrow in mobile advertising: trends, new formats, mobile marketing mix, optimization, etc.
In the second section, we would like to make a shift from “core” topics covered in the first section, and widen visitors’ horizons with non-standard forms of advertising, new mobile business models, etc. In any case, anything that is mobile and that can help companies to do their business better.
Some of our speakers:
- Matt Jones, Client Services Director, Mobile5 (UK) – one of UK’s leading mobile agencies
- David Skerret, Managing Partner, Nimbletank (UK) – works with clients such as Nike, BBC, Universal, etc.
- Tim Green (UK) – one of UK’s authorities on mobile payment who will be talking about the combination of advertising and m-commerce
- Representative from Gameloft, largest global mobile games developer, who will show the audience how to successfully do in-app advertising
There are more mobile devices than toilets in the world. Do we know how to use them?
The goal of the MAD conference is to show how a higher level of user interaction and engagement is achieved using mobile technology in mobile-advanced markets. In order to learn how we can harness the power of mobile technology and reduce the gap between mobile impressions and mobile ad income, last year we solicited the aid of top European mobile advertising experts. Here’s what they thought about the conference.
Alex Newman, Head of Mobile, OMD International, OMG EMEA, UK, winner of the Valencia Festival of Media award, Cannes Lions award, etc.
I really enjoyed the opportunity to travel to Zagreb and speak at last year’s MAD conference. The event is really pushing the mobile agenda in Croatia and a great way to learn about the latest mobile technology innovations, insights and trends.
