Brands have got much cleverer at extending the brand experience. On the one hand consumers have the opportunity to engage with, talk to and talk about brands as never before. On the other hand, they have better things to do with their lives and continue to be blissfully indifferent to most of the 1600 brand messages they receive in a typical day.

So, how can you get your brand talked about?

In a search for non-traditional marketing and the growing use of the internet and mobile devices - buzz, word of mouth, viral marketing and blogs are attracting increased attention as a potentially inexpensive way of reaching targeted groups of consumers.

This conference highlights:

To buzz or not to buzz – what motivates a person to talk about a brand, or to influence others

Online WOM is measurable – how can its impact, effectiveness and ROI be measured?

And to put the quest for word of mouth in context, a controversial Keynote Address from Robert Heath will challenge whether engagement is necessarily a good thing.
