How do you design and develop interactive media experiences that reach new audiences and create new branding opportunities with new ways of earning money in mind?
At the SPOT Interactive Conference in Aarhus May 2nd 2013, we aim to find the answers to this question. We live in a world full of new and exciting technologies that change our media behaviour as we go. New interactive media formats gain ground and new possibilities to reach and engage our audiences have risen.
At the SPOT Interactive Conference you will get to meet successful International and Danish media innovators, who will share their experiences and valuable insights on the above and give their perspectives on content marketing and audience engagement.
The spoken language at the conference is English and the program consists of three keynotes, a panel debate and a row of dynamic presentations inspired by Pecha Kucha. We will add more names to the program as we go along.
