Signalling Success: the event

Pour your coffee, find a comfy spot on the sofa, and join us on the morning of Thursday 5th November from 9.30am - 11.00am

First revealed last month, our fascinating new piece of research focuses on the principle of media signalling, which suggests that the perceived cost and scale of an advertising channel can enhance brand attributes in the eyes of the consumer.

The media channels you select can impact the brand message your audience receives, and in Signalling Success, we set out to showcase how these signals differ between advertising channels and how they can be used to optimum effect for brands.

Now is your chance to see the full presentation from house51 - who conducted the research - as well as invaluable insights from behavioural scientist and author Richard Shotton. Plus don’t miss a lively panel session, including the peerless Rory Sutherland.
