Key highlights of the day two:
We had excellent presentations from our Keynote speakers with Phillip Schindler of Google kicking off the session and Alban Martin from Orange sharing their visions Our first panel discussions followed - Simon Waldman chaired the discussion on ‘Making Integration Win’ with fascinating views from the panellists and then Guy Phillipson of IAB UK chaired the lively and thought-provoking ‘Spending Shifts’ panel. Both discussions continued by the delegates over the coffee break. Our keynote speaker from CNN International/Turner Didier Mormesse discussed his view of the current state of play based on audience research. After a typical Belgian lunch and more lively debate, delegates were treated to a session from John Mangelaars of Microsoft on his perspective of the industry today and where it’s going. This was followed by two further panels on ‘Long Tail, Short Tail’ chaired by Michael Nutley of New Media Age and ‘Winning business in emerging markets’ chaired by Thomas Duhr of United Internet Media. Chris Clarke of agency LBi rounded off the day with a light-hearted look at creativity and some brilliant videos and Alain Heureux, President of IAB Europe closed the session by telling everyone where the drinks were! Delegates enjoyed a lovely evening meal and finished off the evening drinking and dancing in the Belga Queen restaurant and bar, one of Brussels’ trendiest night spots.
On day three we had two sessions running concurrently. The MIA Project group session, discussing the findings of the research project into Internet audience measurement and other important measurement issues. The ability to make online advertising accountable is a topic that came up frequently throughout the event and so it was great to have this session at the end of the Congress. Running concurrently was the mini Research Showcase on Social Media.
