Olympia Room Grand Hall

The BMS & PPC will explore the ways in which publishers are using digital platforms to create and share original and engaging live content to grow audiences and add a new dimension to campaigns. From livestreaming launches, stunts and performances to candid author interviews and readings, collaborating with media partners to increase outreach, live podcast recordings and using platforms such YouTube, Instagram stories, Periscope and Snapchat, live content is a new and powerful way to connect with audiences. Experts and ambassadors from leading digital brands and agencies will give insight, showcase their work and share how ‘live’ can be used effectively on campaigns of any size and budget.
