NZME delves into the archives of ad:tech 1987—UPDATED

This year’s edition of ad:tech again saw some of the most influential members of the industry assemble for a day of brain expansion/occasional brain explosion. And as part of its sponsorship of the event, NZME has delved into the back catalogues and uncovered some fantastic footage showing a panel of speakers (with a remarkable resemblance to several current NZME radio personalities) sharing their thoughts on the future of the video game industry. In addition to sensational graphics and a great example of a sweater on the shoulders, the clip provided scintillating debate, as well as some classic contrarian opining by one speaker.    

NZME are the proud premiere sponsor of ad:tech New Zealand 2015 and we have managed to find this footage from the ad:tech conference way back in 1987. Check it out. #adtech2015 #throwback

UPDATE: It turns out the clips are part of a trilogy, with the third instalment set to be released tomorrow.

At the event, NZME was also giving away this magnificent ‘car of the future’ (or a trip to Ad:Tech Sydney 2016) to a lucky someone who got in on the hashtag action.
