The Conference starts in:

Where one’s voice is being heard

In a world of a strong online presence and social media serving as a tool for expressing one’s personal voice, we are witnessing changes in the dialogue between brand and consumer reaching another level of connection. There’s a growing demand for accountability and transparency resulting in the need for a different spin on branding strategies.

During this year’s Branding 360, we will focus on methodologies for solidifying brands’ reputation and safety and the pitfalls that need to be tackled alongside.

How can you engender public trust in a world of fake news and outrage culture? How do brands thrive in an environment that is critical and unforgiving? Take a peek into what ethical branding is and its potential in the Hong Kong environment – will we be heading in a direction where ethics come first?

Join this one-day conference on 14 November 2018 – a programme jam-packed with speakers that deliver inspiring stories and thought-provoking insights.
