December of this year and January of next year is the time for companies to do their strategic planning. For those working in the overwhelming majority of corporations, the annual planning process plays an essential role. In addition to formulating at least some elements of a company’s strategy for the next 12 to 18 months, the process results in a budget, which establishes the resource allocation map; sets financial, operating, and marketing targets, and aligns the management team on its strategic priorities. The operative question now is as companies go for the preparation of the strategic planning event, how can they plan properly for the brands they are pushing and the markets they are trying to conquer if they don't begin with understanding the media habits of their target audience and consumers?
This is where the input of Media Outlook 2016 comes in.
2016 will be an interesting and exciting year for the media industry in the Philippines as the National Elections and ASEAN integration take center stage in the country.
The Media Outlook 2016 will present more than the usual economic forecasts we get from different media groups. Very few forums touch on the topic of marketing communications, particularly trends and forecasts for the coming year. These relevant questions should be addressed – Will TV continue to be the dominant consumer touch point?, What is the future of TV?, What is the state of out-of-home and billboard advertising? How fast are Filipinos becoming digital? How’s uptake for radio and print media?
These are just some of the questions that a Panel of Experts will answer and provide information in the Media Briefing.Who Should Attend
CMOs, Managing Directors, Advertising/Marketing Managers, Brand Managers, Category Managers, Product Managers, Corporate Communication Managers, Media Planner/Managers, Publishers, Advertising Suppliers, Entrepreneurs, Academics, Students, Government, and those involved in media, advertising and marketing.
