"A rare chance to discuss the key advertising topics of the day with some of the world’s leading specialists – very special."Oliver Bray Partner RPC London, United Kingdom
"Great opportunity to learn and exchange ideas and experiences. It helped me because I learnt from my colleague’s experiences. Think there are many conferences and lectures and their content is almost the same; basic overview. Instead the strength of this Forum is that few people are around the table and can discuss, this allows to go in-depth in the analysis."Ernesto Apa Partner Portolano Cavallo Rome, Italy
