Multi-Screen Marketing Members Only Conference presented by Microsoft Advertising

This event is over.

Today's consumers interact with media throughout their day including their home, work, and everywhere in-between. Multi-screen marketing leverages several different platforms including mobile, tablet, PC, gaming, television, cinema, and video. According to a recent study conducted by Microsoft Advertising and Wunderman, in the past 30 days seventy-five percent of consumers 35-64 years old made a purchase online, communicated through social networks, watched a user-generated video, sent an instant message, and/or played a game online. Consumers are constantly engaging in more activities across multiple screens-how are you tapping into this captive audience? Hear how top marketers such as Microsoft Corporation, Post Foods, Six Flags Entertainment, Turbo Tax, and Volvo Cars of North America, LLC have launched successful and innovative multi-screen marketing campaigns by capturing their audiences' attention.

Join us for a fun and informative day presented by Microsoft Advertising hosted by Microsoft Corporation in New York City. This event is free to ANA members and limited to ANA members and invited guests.

Volvo is gathering speed in the mobile arena with their new cross-platform advertising campaign promoting the S60 model. As Volvo realized that consumers are using their mobile devices to conduct research and shop, Volvo worked with its mobile agency to develop a mobile website where consumers only need to push a button to view images, videos, and additional information on the S60. Find out how Volvo is embracing multi-screen marketing and interactive video ads that have resulted in a higher response rate compared to other types of media running during the same time.

TurboTax took over three hours of NBC prime-time and digital and was the sole sponsor of the movie "National Treasure". TurboTax was the only advertiser for the 35 minutes of commercial time during the broadcast which included regular spots along with special "shows within the show". In those custom spots, three teams competed on a treasure hunt to win $50,000 for charity and the winning team was revealed at the end of the show. This was a dual screen experience, and viewers were able to play along online or on their mobile devices. Discover how TurboTax broke through the clutter during tax season through an innovative sponsorship on multiple screens.
