Adobe & Cannes Lions 2012

Seminar: Is data killing creativity?

Monday, June 18, 9:30–10:15am

Marketing analytics give us unprecedented insight into audience demographics and preferences, but the question remains: How much data is too much? Do creatives risk compromising the effectiveness of their art with overanalysis, and what are the risks of trading the story board for the dashboard? Our panel of experts will explore how data and creativity are both competing and coexisting in advertising and marketing today. Join us.
