Is TV dying? Or is it just evolving? And what do the big changes mean for the important bits between the programming, the ads? Death, Taxes and TVCs, an event being organised by the generous folk from Pure Productions, will delve into this issue to find out what the future of television advertising in New Zealand holds. And while the inaugural event, which features a stellar speaking line-up, is an invite only occasion, StopPress has got five tickets to give away.
Gazing into the crystal ball and discussing their views on the topic will be Jason Paris, chief executive of MediaWorks, James Hurman, planning director at Colenso BBDO and Mike Hutcheson, executive director at Image Centre. So if you want to head along and quench your thirst for knowledge by soaking up the sage thoughts of these huge futuristic minds, add your own (reasonably short) vision for the future of television advertising (or advertising in general) to the comment wall.
The event is taking place on 23 September from 6.30 - 9.30pm and, importantly, the requisite drinks and nibbles will be provided.
