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.

 Police investigating PM's radio show

The Labour Party is feeling vindicated after the Electoral Commission decided an hour-long radio show hosted by Prime Minister John Key last September broke the law. The EC are understood to have referred the matter to police. RadioLive could face fines of up to $100,000 if it is found guilty of breaching the Broadcasting Act.

Smart Kiwi beer, smart Kiwi design: Studio Alexander picks up international award for WilliamsWarn brand work

Gone are the days when homebrew was a byword for, as your dad might say, bloody undrinkable horse piss. Craft beer is one the major growth areas of the booze market and there are now plenty of interesting brews being concocted in garages, laundries, hot water cupboards, man caves and, of course, breweries all around the country. To tap into the growing number of refined palates, Ian Williams and Anders Warn spent five years developing the world's first personal brewery, WilliamsWarn, and the design and brand work by Studio Alexander has matched the quality of the product by taking gold in the international Graphis 100 Best in Design awards.

Win a trip to the ultimate crack

Ah Novus. The Auto Glass Repair and Replacement company behind one of the more divisive ads in recent history. This week Novus launches another campaign - again urging us to show them our crack. It is equally as, ahem, memorable, and looks to be made with much the same budget as the original. But this one comes with the chance to win a trip for two to the ultimate crack - The Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.  So get cracking and enter here. (ps you don't need to send in an actual photo of one's crack. There is an online entry form. Sorry about that Novus. Could you please just delete that email attachment I sent earlier?

Love in the time of Ondemand: iSky's tear-jerking break-up ad

In case you hadn't noticed, the way we watch TV is changing. Appointment viewing is still surprisingly popular and according to Nielsen's new Unitam figures, which factor in time-shifted viewing, just three percent of total viewing last week was time-shifted and 97 percent was live. In homes with personal video recorders (PVRs), time-shifted programming made up about nine percent of total viewing and people with PVRs watched about seven percent more TV in peak time than those in homes without. Away from the living room, however, the 'what you want, when you want it' culture and more reliable streaming means Ondemand content is becoming increasingly popular in New Zealand. And to push its online viewing platform iSky, Sky and two of DDB's up-and-coming creatives Jay Hunt and Pete Gosselin have created a very funny campaign about a woman spurning her old, decrepit and rather bitter old telly for a shiny, vibrant and cocky new laptop. And, just like 'Your Happy Place', the slogan 'Cheat on your TV' is spot on, too.

Wells goes up hill, down dale and cross country for Meridian's renewable tiki tour

Meridian Energy has released some consistently good ads over the past couple of years and created a point of difference by loudly banging its renewable energy drum. And, following on from its quirky West Wind and Ross Island ads, which were conceived by Assignment Group and shot by Perendale, the team has sent Jeremy Wells on another entertaining journey in an effort to celebrate the country the company generates all of its energy from—and, of course, get more customers around New Zealand to "sign up to a better energy future".

Wowing the Superbowl crowd

Super Bowl ads are known for generating buzz—and viewers—but not all creatives are created equal. Chrysler courted controversy and won kudos for a two-minute Super Bowl advertisement that was less a car sales pitch than a rousing political message in election year. Chrysler ignored the unwritten rules of Super Bowl advertising - to be brief and funny, for the second year in a row. But it was still voted best ad of the event. Volkswagen’s The Dog Strikes Back was a distant second and M&M’s dancing candy ad polled third (results here).

All Black under fire from breast-is-best brigade - UPDATED

Earlier this year All Black hero Piri Weepu recorded his third Smokefree advertisement, made by the Health Sponsorship Council and Base Two. His appearance in two earlier Smokefreee ads had been so successful they inspired both his brother, and his mum Kura Weepu, to quit smoking. But now, a furore by the 'breast-is-best brigade" has seen a two second clip of Weepu dropped from the new 2011 ad, for *gasp* bottle feeding his baby daughter.

Why are the malls not empty yet?

Apparently retail is dead. Online shopping is destroying it and, if you believe the hype,all the malls will soon be full of tumble-weeds. Due to constantly improving and sophisticated e-commerce, e-tailers like Amazon, or little online 'stores' set up and run through TradeMe it would seem that consumers have very little incentive to shop at brick and mortar stores any more. The social aspects of shopping are now being attacked by start-ups like Svpply. And group buying and the tipping point theory are still there as well. So why are the malls are not empty yet?
