Location: Dubai, UAE
In September, the CMO Council will be holding an Ethical Brand Caucus with leading marketers, academics, media representatives and CSR experts at The Meydan Hotel in Dubai. In addition to the caucus, the afternoon and evening program will include a reception, panel discussion and IMAX film screening of The Naked Brand (www.thenakedbrand.com), a documentary on the future of advertising produced and directed by ad industry “change agent” Jeff Rosenblum.
Participants will explore the growing imperative to develop and maintain ethical brands in an age of consumer-driven transparency, accountability and responsibility.
