6:00 PM - Luton

At this event, we will look at how digital creative and content - why it’s important and how it’s changing and what we need to be thinking about in the future? The session will cover creative types, formats, and shapes as well as how dynamic creative is becoming more and more accessible. We will also look at how data can be used to personalise digital messages and how it can optimise them effectively.

Delegates will be set a challenge to write a campaign brief and create a campaign hook, utilising new ad formats, and exciting dynamic options.

This is the latest in a series of events being held at the University of Bedfordshire, Luton by the recently formed CIM/UOB Marketing Club.

The aim of the club is to give practising marketers an opportunity to take some time-out, challenge thinking, learn new skills and share experiences with the next generation of marketing talent. It’s also designed to give students interested in careers in marketing an opportunity to network with people already working at the coalface.
