Join us at Asia's most anticipated and influential Digital Marketing conference, taking your place alongside more than 100 senior marketers and digital strategists over 2 days of networking and learning.

Our Digital Marketing Leaders Summit have always been popular for good reason – but this will be the best in Indonesia yet!

The summit will gather the most influential, knowledgable and innovative digital strategists and marketers both regionally and across the globe. But they also must have that 'special something'; it could be a unique human touch, a truly individual mind, or the courage to take their organisation through hell and back- and win. We've found that these particular people can offer the best to our audience, and are able to get the best from them in return.

    Content Quality in the Digital Era

  • 11:00 – 11:45

    Streaming services such as Netflix have already had a major impact on traditional TV advertising, but this does not mean that traditional broadcasting will become extinct, of course, as live programmes and high-profile sporting events will still draw millions of viewers to ‘the box’.

    However, it is no secret that advertising rates are dropping for TV more generally, with many marketers now moving their attention and budget towards digital instead. As a result, we will soon see digital programming overtaking traditional TV for marketing purposes.

    Brands that have not done so already must therefore embrace the transition to digital.

    Indonesian consumers keenly spend their rising personal earnings on electronics and home appliances, striving for the personal comfort and entertainment that characterise a middle-class lifestyle in many parts of the world.
