In late November, IAB Canada held a one day conference "The Big Day: Genius Edition" in both Montreal and Toronto. We were lucky to have folks available to cover both. This first recap, session summaries and videos is submitted by new contributor, Adele McAlear in Montreal …
Nearly 200 people braved Montreal’s first snowfall to attend the IAB’s Interactive to the Max Big Day in Montreal on November 20, 2007, highlighting the newest trends in online marketing, presented by Marketing Magazine and the Interactive Advertising Bureau of Canada. The day had a great mix of case studies, two keynotes and six panel discussions, giving attendees a wide base of knowledge and experiences to absorb. For marketers looking for new tools and tactics that they can add to their toolbox, the day was a great way to hear what worked, and sometimes what didn’t.
And, unlike the Big Day in Toronto and the Roadshow case studies that took place across the country, the content of the Montreal conference was presented in French and English, with an emphasis on the Quebec experience. I give full credit to the organizers, who clearly understand that new marketing is all about knowing your customer.
My three session reports include:
- The Roadshow Case Studies
- Keynote: Sean Moffitt, Agent Wildfire Inc. – Let’s Get Wiki – Building Your Brand in a Customer Controlled Marketplace
- Breakout Session: Widgets: Tools for Branding and Beyond, moderated by Mitch Joel of Twist Image
