AdNews Melbourne Summit returns for 2019

By AdNews | 16 May 2019

AdNews is bringing its annual Melbourne Summit back for a third year on August 8 to the city's Arts Centre.

After an amazingly successful two years in the Victorian city, we are hosting our Summit once again, continuing with the single-strand, single-day event curated by our journalists and the industry.

The Summit brings together several formats: keynotes, presentations, panels and interviews and content exclusive to AdNews.

Themed "Surviving Change", it's an explicit nod to the changes happening within our business and the external forces that are also dictating its growth and innovation.

Early bird tickets costing $610.00 per person are available here.

Why attend AdNews Summit “Surviving Change”?

Among the highlights: REA’s chief economist Nerida Conisbee will deliver a keynote on how the economy will impact the advertising, media and marketing industries, while Clemenger BBDO MD Simon Lamplough will be in the room to talk campaigns that instigate change.

Deepend Melbourne/VERSA will be on hand to reveal how they instilled a radical culture change to support their employees, while VMLY&R CEO Aden Hepburn will be joined by Mediacom’s Willie Pang and others to discuss how agencies are now called upon to change their models to cope with the shifting demands of marketers.

You will hear this and so much more.

Our most up-to-date program is available here. There are many more announcements to come in the next two weeks.

The event will also deliver an exclusive research presentation on what AI can tell us about the journey of Women in Advertising from CX agency LIDA and Trade Desk will host an exclusive session on how an Australian API first promises to change adland.

They say change comes fast. Lucky you have us to keep track.
