New partnership with Campaigning Summit Switzerland - Friday, March 31, 2017

The EMScom Alumni Association is pleased to present a new partnership with the Campaigning Summit Switzerland, an event that brings together the thought leaders in campaigning, business development, innovation, marketing, communication as well as politics, lobbying and the economy. This interesting group of people will meet for the fifth time on March 31, 2017. The expert speakers and highly qualified participants will devote themselves to discussing those campaigns which have moved people, under the motto "networking, inspiration and learning from each other".

Chatbots, machine learning, artificial intelligence - what does this mean for campaigns, marketing and communication? How can companies, NGOs, associations and agencies prepare and how do we move to that point? 5 top international speakers will delve into these topics: Jonathan Ellis (British Red Cross), Operation Libero, Branding Expert Michael Brandner, future expert Yuri van Geest and Peter Metzinger with a surprise speech. There will be interdisciplinary BarCamps and the business campaigning workshops (new!) on the previous day.

EMScom Alumni can benefit from a 15% discount on the registration fee. Please send an email to emscomalumni@usi.ch in order to receive the discount code.
