The Festival of Media held its first event in 2007 and quickly became one of the best events to attend if you are a brand, agency, or media company, and have an advertising, marketing, or content creation focus. Events are held three times a year in locations conveniently available depending on your continent, managed by the international events company C Squared. The global event has been in past locations such as Venice, Italy and Montreux, Switzerland with the Latin America and Asia events held in locations such as Miami and Singapore. The event has doubled in size since 2007 with the 2011 event including more than 700 registered delegates bringing together people from over 40 countries. Major brands are always in attendance and past presentations include insights spanning various industries from companies like: AT&T, Anheuser-Busch, Coca Cola, Kraft, L’Oreal, Nestlé, Nike, Phillips, and Unilever, and from global agencies such as: Omnicom, Publicis, and WPP. Media companies in regular attendance include: AOL, Facebook, Fox, Google, News Corp, and Twitter including marketing measurement companies like comScore, who will also be in attendance at this year’s global event.
The common theme bringing all of these brands, agencies, and medias together is not only how to evolve with the changing media landscape and latest digital marketing strategies, but to also celebrate great advertising and well executed campaigns. As such, the event also includes an awards ceremony and gala event where campaigns are celebrated by peers and recognized for creative and innovative work, constantly pushing the industry forward. As a proud sponsor of the Braves Awards which is celebrating the best in brand video and also managed by C Squared, we are privileged to be in attendance at this year’s #FOMG12 event which is returning to the location of Montreux, Switzerland and held on April 15-17th.
