Gaming Breakfast 2019 Presented By Unity and Zynga Ads

Posted By Administration, 2 hours ago

What an event this was! The speakers, the panels, the incredible amount of information offered to our 300+ attendees.

ThinkLA's Cannabis Marketing 2019: From Bud to Bloom provided the SoCal advertising community the latest information about the dynamic cannabis industry. With the legalization of hemp in 2018 and overall increasing acceptance, the cannabis market represents a huge opportunity for advertisers, agencies, and the marketing/media community; and California is leading the way. 

Brand marketers, publishers, agency professionals, and ad tech executives learned about the latest industry rules and regulations, how this is impacting wellness, what's working and what's not working for marketers, and how brands are building new, innovative marketing programs.

We had a great day of insight and information. Thank you for being there, and thank you to our speakers and sponsors!

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 29, 2019
Updated: Friday, March 29, 2019

Attendees at our ELC Live! event enjoyed a great conversation around brand authenticity... for real! Major thanks to El Camp and Ignited USA for hosting us, and thanks to our brilliant panelists:

Kasi Bruno, Managing Director, Research, and Cultural Intelligence, Culture Bureau
Matthew Brian Buchenroth, Head of Creative and Creative Entrepreneur, Pluto TV
Sybil Grieb, U.S. Head of Influencer Strategy and Programming, Edelman
Mia Von Sadovszky, SVP, Group Planning, Director, RPA

Brands are integrated into all aspects of society and, as consumers demand them to be more responsible participants, brands are expected to be more personal and transparent with their target audiences. Yet, in a world full of social media fads and temporary bandwagon philanthropy, can brands ever really be considered authentic? Join us for a conversation around brand safety, the use of social influencers and managing an authentic brand image in today's market. We asked: Are brands for real?
