Critical Issues in Marketing

2018 is a critical year for marketing and key issues marketers face that weren’t imagined in 2017 and it’s all about disruption!

Facebook’s data breaches of almost 100 million customers; cyber hacking in Japan which cost a company more than $630 million USD in losses; online fraud which cost online merchants over $58 billion USD in 2017; intellectual property fraud which is estimated at over $600 billion USD; platform dominance – are Facebook, Google and YouTube too big and why they can’t stop consumer fraud on their platforms; and  “are ad agencies dying? since consulting companies and Facebook and Google are working directly with clients and bypassing agencies.

M2 is planning a three-part series in May, June and August to explore these issues in cooperation with Vietnam Marcom and the Vietnam Marketing Association.

M2 – May 8th will feature:

  • Customer service and how it impacts corporate asset & brand value
  • Database & Privacy issues & the new EU data laws
  • Intellectual Property Theft
  • Mobile Advertising & Marketing – Who knows if its working?
  • Online fraud in digital advertising, KOL marketing & social media

M2 – June will feature:

  • What brands want from their agency and media partners
    – an interactive session between brands and agencies
    * Co-organized with Vietnam Marcom & Vietnam Marketing Association

M2 – August will feature:

  • Consumer fraud & Identity theft
  • Creating relevant content for different market segments
  • CyberSecurity for companies, enterprises & online businesses
  • Identifying the Right Technologies for your Digital Business & Enterprise
  • The digital transformation of corporations
  • The Future of Advertising Agencies & Media Companies

Sign up now for the first in this three-part series “Critical Issues in Marketing” – an M2 – Marketing & Media event on May 8th / Tuesday from 6:00 ~ 9:00pm at the Hard Rock Café in District 1.
