Crystal balls warmed up for Marketing Today as Warner's Morse added to line-up

Put 16 November 2011 in your diary folks, because the Marketing Association reckons the list of big brains on the bill means the Marketing Today conference is shaping up as the biggest marketing event of the year.

The focus of this year’s conference is the future of media and marketing, and speakers like keynote Joi Ito, director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab, Warner Music Group’s director of marketing operations Eric Morse and local bods like Debra Hall, Paul Maher and Paul Thomson, will share insights into where consumers are moving, the exponential pace at which this is happening, and how this phenomenon is transforming the media space and those that operate within it or supply to it.

“This will be New Zealand’s biggest marketing event of the year – we have secured an impressive line-up of both local and international marketing and media experts and the agenda for the day has been designed to be interactive, so come prepared to participate,” says Sue McCarty, chief executive of the Marketing Association.

Morse, the latest addition to the line-up, is an award-winning digital innovator and has led content for RealNetworks and Smirnoff Ice, created data-driven product and branding strategy for Singer Sewing Co., and mapped out merchandising and branding programs for Coca-Cola. In 2002, he founded Trampoline House magazine, an early online “culture-discovery” destination.

He specialises in integrating multiple channels into cohesive messaging and engagement campaigns. Calling upon his work with global superstars and multinational brands, he will discuss his unique vision of where we’re going as an industry, and present a practical approach to turning top line ideas into bottom line results.

Win $50 by wishful thinking

Aah Christmas, what's not to love?  Parties, presents, yummy treats.  But gifts aren't always what you want, take reindeer sweaters, or singing fish ornaments for example. To make up for the bitter disappointment such gifts bring, we have two $50 gift cards to give away, for Subway and GrabOne.

Powershop disturbs the LucasFilm force as The Sound of Darth gets pulled

In our humble opinion, Powershop's 'Same Power, Different Attitude' campaign is one of the best campaigns of the year. But we wondered aloud a couple of weeks ago whether its latest execution featuring Darth Vader prancing through a field like Julie Andrews crossed the IP line. Turns out it did, and the LucasFilm patent lawyers have been in touch telling them to cease and desist. They've done as asked, but, with a dose of challenger brand cheek, they've also taken a leaf out of 42 Below's book and, with the help of its PR agency Sputnik, decided to have a bit of fun with the apology letter.

Stolen Rum's bold letter to Bacardi

Stolen Rum is a New Zealand-based start-up rum company that wants to bring back the romanticism and history of rum to a contemporary audience. The rum itself has been judged world class, and it's got the requisite feel good back-story, but an in-house cheeky guerrilla marketing campaign hopes to put Stolen Rum on everyone's lips—including the spirit-making behemoth it's competing with, Bacardi.

Don't mess with Mr Inbetween: TVNZ and Sky take us inside the Igloo

 When we asked TVNZ's head of digital Eric Kearley in early November whether TVNZ was working with Sky and would launch a set-top box before the digital switchover, he flat out said no. But last night Sky and TVNZ brought out the big PR guns and officially launched "New Zealand's worst kept secret", Igloo, the mid-play TV network that offers both pay and free-to-air channels. And while there's plenty to shout about with the new offer, there are still questions lingering about its modus operandi and whether MediaWorks will play nice.
