UNILEVER ENTERS THE MAN CAVE
Recently launched, "The Man Cave" is a rich Channel Experience on the Xbox LIVE platform which enables Unilever to reach multiple male target audiences. In this session we will look at the strategy and design of this project through the lens of Integrated Marketing. We'll explore the benefits of a portfolio initiative across brands (AXE, Dove, Klondike, Degree) and the value of creating a long term channel strategy vs. creating one-off deals. Also shared are tips for securing both corporate and individual brand buy-in to move projects forward as well as strategies for leveraging newly available innovation cycles.

KRAFT MACARONI & CHEESE GROWS UP
For almost 30 years, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese was
marketed as a children's food. However, children do grow up and become
adults who still enjoy Macaroni & Cheese, but they don't want anyone to
know about it, because it's "kid's food". In order to change this
misguided image, Kraft embarked on a new rebranding campaign to market Kraft
Macaroni & Cheese as America's Favorite Family Food. Join Chris
Miles, Director of Advertising, Meals at Kraft Foods Inc. as he takes us
through the journey of rebranding an American iconic food for everyone in the
family to enjoy through an integrated campaign with TV, print, billboards,
online and social media.

MCCAFE: BUILDING MCDONALD'S AS A BEVERAGE DESTINATION FOR AFRICAN AMERICANS THROUGH INTEGRATED MARKETING
McDonald's and Burrell will discuss
how they brought McCafe coffee beverages to African Americans through an
integrated marketing campaign. McDonalds's and Burrell marketed the products in
a way that was accessible and appealing - based on the insight that coffee culture
wasn't very strong in the African American community. Seeking to attach coffee
to something cooler and hipper, Burrell and McDonald's launched an integrated
strategy that included TV, print, digital, radio, and national events. These
events included club appearances by up-and-coming R&B artist Dwele and
opportunities for consumers to sample the products, taking the barrier of entry
away by giving out the product for free.

Gatorade's G Series Fit is targeted to the 'fitness' athlete,"
with a "three-item line of products meant to be consumed before, during and
after workouts." The new series builds on Gatorade's strategy to focus on its
core athletic consumers rather than the lifestyle drinkers that had gravitated
toward it in years past. Dedicated advertising for the new products include TV,
print and digital buys. Gatorade featured several athletes during their
fitness routines in the campaign, including U.S. Gold Medal winning sprinter
Allyson Felix and swimmer Ryan Lochte. Join Andrea Fairchild, VP of Brand
