AdNews May Edition: Industry bodies, Goodoil, AI

Ogilvy designs AdNews May 2019 edition

The AdNews May edition has landed and features all the latest industry goings on, big features, people profiles, deep-dives on creative, adland confessions and more. Subscribe here to make sure you get your copy.

In this edition our in-depth feature looks at industry bodies, their role within adland, purpose and achievements.

In an attempt to eliminate confusion over who does what, we asked 10 of the main peak bodies to outline key elements of their business, such as a mission statements, fees, board members and benefits.

We also reached out to a cross-section of the industry to check sentiments about the current lay of the land.

Described as “faceless organisations identified only by their acronyms” by one exec, and praised by another for a plethora of useful courses and events, it's fair to say there is some divide.

A big thanks to our cover agency Ogilvy who relished the challenge, presenting a trio of top ideas. Keep an eye out for Behind the Cover.
