Bauer Media at Ad Week

We’re really excited to be a Corporate Partner at Ad Week Europe this year and the team are looking forward to the event next week at the new venue, Picturehouse Central.

From providing the official radio soundtrack with #soundofadweek, to Grazia’s exclusive lunch with WACL at Fortnum & Mason and Terri White’s interview with one of the film industry’s greats, we hope our Ad Week programme gives our agency partners and clients, plus the rest of the media community, a real insight into our influential portfolio of brands and understanding of our powerful audiences.

I hope to see lots of you down there – here are all the details of our sessions.

Abby Carvosso, Group MD of Advertising, Bauer Media

Beyond Live
ITV Stage
The live experience has never been more important within the entertainment industry. In many cases it generates more money for artists than recorded music, but there is increased pressure to make the live experience even more experiential. Whether it’s the additional elements added to festivals or the desire to make everyone a VIP – it’s a booming industry.

The panel will discuss how things have changed, the future and whether a brand’s inclusion in an event can change the way we think.

The Power of Sound
The Sun Studio
The Power of Sound is an experiential presentation exploring how evolution refined our senses, affected the development of our memory, decision making along with human communication, which now defines our relationship with the arts, media and brands.

In addition to this, our executives are appearing on separate panel sessions. They are:

The Brexit
ITV Stage
Fuelled by Europe’s migration crisis and the interminable Euro mess, “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” by The Clash has taken on new meaning.

The implications for “Brand Britain” are without precedent as passions run high in both camps. Britain’s long uneasy relationship with the European Union has indeed boiled over and 23 June will surely be a day that lives in infamy, regardless of the result. This extraordinary extended seminar unites perspectives grounded in the two campaigns: "Britain Stronger in Europe" and "Vote Leave”.

Gossip Is What Makes Us Human

Gossip is a fundamental part of human life – it bonds us, help us communicate, builds trust & helps society grow. It is also a modern day fuel for branding.

This session will explore the overlooked power gossip has for brands and marketing in general, and why the sharing of this "content" is so important at unlocking high-value customers.

Panellists include ITV's Head of Entertainment, the Publisher of Heat and Gleam Future’s Brand Partnerships Director.

Rupert Staines MD EMEA, RadiumOne
Richard Howard Publisher & Brand Owner, Bauer Media
