Content may be king, but in the new world of digital and online driven communications is branded content the Holy Grail… or just added filler?

Join 200+ industry leaders for this year’s Critical Issues Forum as we examine the disruptive potential, and the role of public relations, in branded content. Hear from a wide array of experts and media luminaries as they share their insights on its effectiveness, ethics, and future models of content creation.

The Forum will also feature a special segment on the pros and cons of buying, owning, renting or building marketing content. The day will end with a laugh with “Punk’d, Parodied and Brandjacked: What we can Learn from the Masters of Satire.”
