How industry leaders in Hong Kong are finding stability

On 21 September Campaign Asia Pacific is partnering with WE Communications for a morning of intrigue—deep-diving into the tidal forces affecting brands in today's world including: tech-driven business models, heightened consumer expectations, unpredictable government regulations and excitable financial markets.
 
Since kicking off in 2017, WE Communications’ Brands in Motion report has lifted the lid on how brands create stories and adapt at the speed of consumer expectations. 2018's correlating event will dig further into those stories, and provide real-world examples and practical insight into their wins and fails.

08.55 Brands in Motion: The report
 
Which industries have seen the greatest movement and disruption in the last year
and are staying at the cutting edge of change? WE Communications’ award-winning
Brands in Motion study quantifies and analyses ever-shifting consumer perceptions
at multiple touchpoints—from geography and category to competition and
stakeholders—to better understand how brands can manage their motion relative to
the forces pressuring them. This year, it’s even bigger: eight markets, eight
categories, and more than 25,000 consumers and B2B decision-makers were
surveyed. In this session, WE Comms lifts the lid on the results and looks at how
brands can adapt as quickly as the consumers around them.
 
09.45 Panel discussion: Keeping up with the new consumer
 
The new consumer is socially-conscious and looking for a brand’s purpose as well as
their own. They have exponential expectations in this era of responsibility, requiring
brand innovation to be functional, ethical, and foster stability. Does the brand share
the same values? Emotionally, the consumer might be engaged but are the product, message and values aligning with the consumer’s own view? Where emotional marketing once conquered all, are we moving towards a world where rationality triumphs in the eyes of the consumer? In this panel discussion, Campaign Asia Pacific's Southeast Asia editor Faaez Samadi brings together industry thought leaders Fiona Tin, marketing & communications director at TimeVallée, and Alan VanderMolen, president at International WE to explore the opportunities the new consumer brings to brand purpose.
