On Digital Day 2021, the committee took a deeper look into how the digital audio and video landscape has evolved in the past 10 years. This event covered topics ranging from brand standards, agency best practices, platforms (new and old), tracking capabilities, metrics we may be discounting, connected TV, podcasts, streaming radio, and much more.
On Digital Day 2021, the committee took a look at the developing trend of gaming, which has increased with the various lockdown situations during COVID, including the sales of gaming consoles, handheld gaming devices, downloads, gaming subscriptions, the growth in gaming influencers, and time spent gaming.
In our July 2021 Mindful Mornings workshop, our panel of experts looked into strategic ways to combat the pervasive idea that advertising and marketing professionals can be too young (and therefore inexperienced) or too old (and therefore irrelevant) to meaningfully contribute to the Canadian advertising industry.
In our August OOH Special Presentation, our panel of experts refuted the misconception that OOH is an anecdotal medium with data that charts the science behind Canada’s return to life post-lockdown. Discover which consumer categories will explode in the new world, and hear predictions based on current behavioural modelling and analytic insights as to what this could mean for marketers and this medium.

For this upcoming Newspaper Day, moderated by John Tory, we will be discussing how publishers can work in partnership with Local Businesses in the re-opening of the economy and to support them in 2021. Many businesses and non-profit organizations have been shut down or are operating at limited capacity for months due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Understandably, a lot of business owners are eager to start up again and resume serving their customers more fully. We will hear directly from advertisers on how newspapers can assist and cultivate their existing partnerships during this process. Our panel, consisting of newspaper advertisers, will discuss the vital role that newspaper media have in navigating the new normal. The event will take place on April 27 at 1pm.
