MarketingPulse Debuts Next Month
Global Creative Minds, Brand Owners Convene to Examine Innovative Marketing

HONG KONG, Feb 6, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), MarketingPulse, a regional premium conference for marketers and brands, will debut on 21 March at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), featuring world-renowned brand owners, marketing and advertising experts and top creative minds. The inaugural event is tailored for corporate executives, brand representatives as well as marketing and advertising agency representatives to hear about the latest marketing strategies and trends.

Innovative Ideas from Mars to Van Gogh

Speaking at the session "Innovation Shapes New Marketing Frontiers" will be legendary advertising figures Joshua Grossberg, Group Creative Director of McCann New York, and Peter Lefebvre, Creative Director of Leo Burnett.

Mr Grossberg is behind the successful 2016 Lockheed Martin promotional campaign "The Field Trip to Mars," which used virtual reality (VR) technology to lead a group of primary-school students on a Martian adventure. The groundbreaking promotional campaign, which successfully leveraged cutting-edge technology, captivated the industry and the media, earning the agency numerous advertising awards, including the NYF Advertising Awards and the Webby Awards.

In a 2016 project for the Art Institute of Chicago, Mr Lefebvre recreated the room featured in the Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh's The Bedroom and listed it on Airbnb to give the public an up-close look at Van Gogh's masterpiece. The cross-sector collaboration quickly went viral and successfully promoted the Art Institute's Van Gogh exhibition to online audiences. That same year, Mr Lefebvre was named one of 2016's top 10 creative directors.

Creative thinking from content to media

In addition, the conference will explore an array of topical marketing subjects, including the Asian and Chinese markets, content marketing and big data applications. The conference has also invited several creative marketing gurus to host interactive sharing sessions to discuss the latest trends.
