AMASA presents ‘Marketing in a Recession - to Spend or not to Spend?'
Join us on Wednesday 2nd July where AMASA (the Advertising Media Association of South Africa) hosts Millward Brown's Marketing Sciences specialist Hendrik van Vuuren who will lead a thought-provoking discussion around what many of us in the marketing, media and advertising industry are talking about - to spend or not to spend in the threat of recession.
Global talk alone may be enough to trigger a recession whether underlying economics dictate it or not. It's been proven that an increase in marketing spend during tough times can gain a long-term advantage for a brand. But many marketers, constrained by budgets and circumstances, will not be able to use this strategy. Will this leave their brands in peril?
Join us in finding out what strategies the global research experts suggest for South African marketers in these trying times.
The AMASA Meeting begins 16h30 sharp on the 2nd July 2008, Inanda Country Club, in the Ballroom, 1 Forrest Road, Inanda, Sandton. AMASA members free, non-members R50.
