AMA Atlanta: Giving Marketers The Remote: Advanced Entertainment Advertising Strategies
October 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Entertainment companies are planning to forge new paths as some predict we are entering an “attention recession” and screen fatigue where consumers will spend more time outside than in front of their screens. We will be engaging entertainment brands to determine how they are pivoting around programming, content accessibility and advertiser opportunities to keep viewers and marketers engaged.
