    2013 is drawing to a close, and at Networx, we're taking the opportunity to review the year that's been, and to consider the year ahead. What were the highlights (and lowlights) in marketing campaigns this year, and what trends can we expect to see in 2014?

    Join us on Monday, 9th December at the Tilbury Hotel, Woolloomooloo, for Marketing Trends 2014. We'll be speaking with key thought leaders in the industry to gain a better understanding of where marketing, communications, PR and advertising are heading, and the implications for your brand.

    We'll look at new media platforms, new technology, where traditional marketing fits within the mix, and what it will take to engage and retain consumers over the next year. 

    Our Industry Panel includes:

    • Alex Hayes: Editor of Mumbrella, and previous editor at B&T, will share his insights into big picture trends across marketing, PR, advertising and media. As editor of Australia's most influential trade marketing and media website, Alex is well positioned to discuss what worked this year, and what didn't.
    • Craig Rispin: Business Futurist and Innovation Expert, will make predictions for the year ahead and beyond. Craig will provide tips on how we can stay ahead of the curve, though this may mean betting on the future.
    • Rob Belgiovane: Founding Partner and Executive Creative Director of Belgiovane Williams Mackay, (BWM), will provide an agency perspective of what's trending in marketing and what their clients' focus will be for 2014.

    Topics covered include:

    • Top campaigns of 2013.
    • Brands and categories (globally or locally) that will be leading the way in marketing in 2014.
    • The changing traditional media landscape and how PR's can adapt. 
    • The future of digital, social and mobile. Will the current leaders (Facebook, Twitter, Instragram) be as popular in five years, and how do we build a long-term strategy with the digital landscape constantly changing?
    • The future of traditional marketing and disciplines - e.g. PR, advertising, DM? How will these evolve in the next year and beyond?
