11:05-11:40 - Consumer centric digital advertising: Delivering real consumer value with mobile ads and making them more effective for leading beverage brands.
Mitchell Reichgut, CEO, Jungroup

Mobile puts people in control of the content they consume and everything else they do, from health, to commerce, to entertainment, and travel. Brand messaging however is one area that is lagging. Brands are still disrupting consumers with flashy ads, and people are fed up, opting to pay to eliminate ads and/or  block them altogether. 

Respecting the will of the consumer is more important than ever before. Imagine a world where reaching affluent or tech savvy consumers on mobile becomes impossible- this could become a reality. Find out how best-in-class beverage brands are developing the “right” creative for the right “context” and delivering real consumer value through brand messaging. The panel will cover best practices for reaching the ever increasing ad-intolerant consumer.
