"The Seven Advertising Myths: Initial Findings from the Future of Advertising Project" with Professor Yoram Wind, The Lauder Professor, Professor of Marketing, Director, SEI Center for Advanced Studies in Management, Academic Director, Wharton Fellows Program.

The popular press and many marketing and advertising executives have strong beliefs about advertising and how it works. How many times have you heard that Tivo and other advances in technology have led to the death of the 30 second TV commercial , that emotion trumps rational messages, that message beats the media vehicle, that the best advertising is consumed in the home ,that social advertising spend is less cost effective than more traditional advertising spend, that click rates on display ads are the best measure of advertising effectiveness, that the “new consumers” are very different from the “old consumers’ in regard to media behavior, trust in advertising and brand influencers etc.

Are these and similar beliefs about advertising supported by facts or are they unsupported myths?

The session will report on and discuss some of the initial findings of the Future of Advertising Project and the results of extensive discussions among the 40 plus board members of the project on the validity of these and other beliefs.

Be ready to share your views on what is myth and reality in advertising and compare it with the initial findings of the project.
