Watch 'Delivering the goods: FMCG brands on TV' on demand


'Delivering the goods: FMCG brands on TV' took place on Thursday 12th March. You can catch up with all the sessions from the morning by selecting to watch them above. 

FMCG businesses are experiencing a wide range of disruptive pressures; from the changing patterns of demand in the global marketplace, cost volatility of materials, growth in own label and online grocery providers, to the rise of the conscious consumer, voice technologies and direct to consumer entrants.

Effective communications will have a critical role to play in successfully navigating the challenges and opportunities that come with this for marketers. Our event delivered the inside track, with the opportunity to learn from FMCG TV success stories; explore category benchmarks for effective advertising, and indulge in the creative driving these businesses.
