SESSION I: THE FIGHT FOR @TENTION INTENSIFIES
Marketing success demands the right message being delivered to the right audience with the right presentation at the right time. That´s true whether the message is delivered by advertising, direct mail, publicity or any other channel. Yet media planning and marketing communication have been fundamentally altered by the proliferation of digital media and mobile technologies. Although traditional channels like print media are unlikely to go away soon, consumers increasingly demand interaction with them on social networks, via tablets and mobile devices, and in ways that were unthinkable a few years ago. Today the right media mix is defined by customer desires rather than by the brand team. The path to tomorrow´s media is studded with questions, doubt, and also fear of the unknown. Where is the new communication landscape leading us? What will media consumption look like in the future? And how will it be measured? What impact will it have on paper, print and packaging?

Embrace the challenge and adapt to change! Disruptions from inside and outside our industries´ traditional ecosystems force us to to create viable innovations which encompass concept development, business modeling and market readiness. Along the forest based value chain we find numerous examples of how the requirements of a new environment are translated into innovative products and processes.
