Nice summary article here from the BBC’s Rory Cellan-Jones on how advertising on mobile is changing and where we can expect it to head. His report comes from Mobile World Congress, the annual event dedicated to all things mobile, and his key points are around local search, video-on-mobile, and advertising-in-apps. There’s also a good summary video here. While we’re at it, a nod to BBC Click for their technology content generally.
Some of the themes and trends in these articles will also be discussed at ad:tech Sydney. We’re not just about mobile, we take the key issues and discuss those in depth in relation to the marketing and advertising potential. Here are a couple of the sessions at ad:tech that pick up those major themes:
We spent some time thinking about this council and what we should name it. Last year we had the ‘Mobile’ council but since the iPad’s launch, the expectation of other tablets in the market and the morphing of many devices to a mobile environment it made sense that we made the group more ‘universal’ in its appeal.
We know we could host a two day conference on mobile technology, the changes, the opportunities, the impact on products, businesses, marketing and advertising. What we’ll be trying to do is synthesise everything down to the most pertinent issues for you. There’s lots that’s happening in this space but we want to program the topics that matter most to the digital media and marketing community so we’re delighted to be working with this group of local industry executives to shape and guide the content on Unwired Media:
Justin Baird, Senior Product Specialist, Google
Hanno Blankenstein, Director, S&C
Darren Burden, Director of News & Platforms, Fairfax Digital
John Treloar, Managing Director, ANZ, Oolaya
Oliver Weidlich, Director – Design & Innovation, Mobile Experience
Jennifer Wilson, Director, The Project Factory
