Future-proofing your Brand Experience
Future-proofing your Brand Experience
With limitations comes opportunity...
The past year has proved that brand experience must be an approach and a relationship, not just an activation or a tactical event. Brand experience’s focus should be creating big ideas and campaigns that can be amplified across multiple touch points and marketing channels. Seizing the positive, we firmly believe the pandemic is expediting changes long overdue in the world of brand experience – pushing creativity, innovation and integration harder than ever before.
Amplify works with some of the most innovative and progressive brands all over the world including adidas, Adobe, Amazon, BrewDog, Converse, Facebook and Smirnoff. We are known for being thought leaders in our industry and were determined 2020 would be no exception. We helped clients, existing and new, navigate the challenges of the pandemic; always ensuring any marketing investment delivered long-term gain to evolve and future-proof their brands, not just create 'quick fixes'.
This session builds on previous webinars sharing the key principles we at Amplify have identified as most important for brands, as featured in Campaign's 'The Year Ahead for Experiences'. We match theory with concrete examples of work we believe pioneers and exemplifies this approach for brands including Dr. Martens, Google, YouTube and for one of the biggest global product launches of 2020 with PlayStation®5.
