Contextual Integration /

A session at Most Contagious 2013 NYC

Wednesday 11th December, 2013

12:05pm to 12:45pm (EST)

It may be clichéd, but the analogy of integrated marketing being like matching luggage remains apt. An idea is taken and then adapted from its original intended channel to work on any number of other platforms, be they mobile, social, experiential, etc. The only problem is that people don’t live their lives according to media silos. As more marketers begin prioritising consumer-centricity, a new age of integration is starting to emerge – one based not on media channels, but on an individual person’s specific context. At Most Contagious we’ll be exploring how time, location and even intent are now being considered by the most technologically-savvy marketers to deliver hyper-personalised experiences.
