WHAT BRANDS CAN LEARN FROM K-POP

K-pop is exploding and brands have taken notice  it's become a globally recognized industry and mainstreamed into Western culture. Many American retailers have increased their K-pop merchandise and Mattel even has a line of dolls profiling the South Korean boy band, BTS. The success of the K-pop industry offers many lessons to brands on the power of social media, content creation, and influencer marketing. This will be an extended session to kick off the conference featuring K-pop experts and brands — so please arrive early. ANA appreciates the input from 3AF on the curation of this session.
