It's one of the largest television audiences every year for a sporting event. But it's also the pinnacle for marketing with some viewers tuning in just to watch the ads. Which is why slots during the Super Bowl can command up to $5m a pop. In our opening event of the year, we look to uncover some of the secrets to those campaigns and look for what lessons can be taken and applied to everyday marketing. 


During this podcast, you'll discover:

  • Why the Super Bowl and large sporting events are attractive platforms for advertisers.
  • Why creative advertising is critical in the age of digital marketing.
  • Sponsorship-linked activation through advertising and how it works to achieve sponsorship objectives.
  • Ambush advertising associated with sporting events and Super Bowl.
  • Cases/Examples of the successes and failures associated with Super Bowl.
  • Sports consumption and how is it evolving among younger segments.
