IAB to Host Mobile Forum at Cannes Lions


The IAB and its IAB Mobile Marketing Center of Excellence will chair a first-ever all-day forum devoted to the topic of Creativity in Mobile Advertising during Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.

On Tuesday, June 19, IAB President and CEO Randall Rothenberg will lead the day's series of panels - six sessions in all, including a final roundtable that will spotlight The IAB Creative Showcase: Secrets of the Mobile Superstars. On stage discussion during this session will feature Colleen DeCourcy of Socialistic, Thomas Fellger of Iconmobile, and Per Holmkvist of Mobiento. They will share examples of the best mobile creative, and offer insights on how to take advantage of opportunities in mobile.

"The IAB-led forum at Cannes offers potent insights from some of mobile's biggest superstars, who will show real-world examples of mobile marketing and advertising innovations," said Rothenberg. "Mobile is already resetting the boundaries for marketing and advertising, but it's critical that we not get caught up in technical gobbledygook and focus relentlessly on the one issue that matters most: creating fantastic unique experiences for consumers."

Rothenberg will serve as the Daily Forum Moderator for each session throughout the forum. The schedule of the day is as follows:
