AHAA's Most Aggressive Agenda To-Date Reaches beyond Hispanic Marketing
MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AHAA, in partnership with FIAP and Circulo Creativo, has announced its most powerful conference agenda to date. Four C-suite level executives have signed on to spearhead a series of can't-miss sessions taking place at the AHAA 2013 Conference between April 29th and May 1st at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel in Miami. In addition to WPP CEO Sir Martin Sorrell, AHAA is pleased to announce the following additions to its lineup:
- Laurence Boschetto, CEO and President of Draftfcb
While much of the industry still looks at the business from either an "above-the-line" general advertising perspective or the more measurable, "below-the-line" marketing services point-of-view, Laurence is a staunch champion of integration – both in terms of how Draftfcb thinks and how it connects its clients with an increasingly in-control consumer. He believes in big, holistic ideas that ignite engagement and create an emotional response, while driving business results across marketing channels and platforms. During this session, Laurence will share his winning perspectives and insights, including his firm belief, that the people who make up the agency should reflect the rich diversity of consumers with whom the agency connects on behalf of his clients.
- Adam Ostrow, Chief Strategy Officer of Mashable
With U.S. Hispanics more likely than the average American to own or plan to buy smart phones and tablets, and U.S. Spanish-language broadcasters rapidly expanding their second screen and connected TV offers, mobile is redefining the Hispanic marketing mix. As CSO for Mashable – the independent news site with 25 million unique monthly visitors and 10 million social media followers – Mashable executive Adam Ostrow responds to the new challenges social and mobile are creating for publishers and advertisers…from curation and user experience to second screen impact, brands as content creators, and more.
- Mark Tutssel, Chief Creative Officer of Leo Burnett Worldwide
One of the industry's most awarded creative directors, Mark Tutssel oversees work in 96 global offices and believes deeply in the power of ideas and creativity to transform human behavior. Today, with opportunities exploding for people everywhere to engage with brands and one another in unexpected ways and at unprecedented speeds, the big, crazy, courageous idea is more powerful than ever. This session will spark conversation – and inspiration -- with brands and agencies alike.
Jam-packed with a stellar selection of who's who of the marketing executive elite, the AHAA 2013 Conference is poised to attract a diverse collection of media, marketing and communications agencies, brands and corporate partners who are seeking to deepen their strategic marketing arsenal. With the theme of "Thinking under the Influence," attendees will be treated to content highlighting the Hispanic influence that is currently driving much of America's evolving culture and therefore the marketing industry as a whole.
"This year, our conference goes well beyond Hispanic marketing," said Roberto Orci, Chair of AHAA and CEO of Acento. "With the multicultural consumer shifting to be the central focus of truly successful marketing strategies, companies wishing to grow and remain relevant need to rethink the way they do business – and where they invest their marketing dollars. Agencies have been saying this for years… Now it is coming from the mouths of top-ranking officials of from our nation's biggest and most respected companies."

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
