The Association of Advertisers in Ireland (AAI) has kicked off its 2019 with details of its forthcoming #AAIToolkit series of seminars which will be held of February 5th.
Called “Yoh, Propagandhi” it will discuss the topic of “Brands, Politics & the Broader Implications for Corporate Activism in 2019” and will be presented by Paudge Donaghy and Trista Vincent.
During the seminar, attendees will hear whether or not marketers have been too hasty in their embrace of cause-aligned marketing and whether they have become confused about the benefits of clear and relevant positioning with partisan platforming.
The event is free to AAI members and costs €35 for non-members. To book a place, visit www.aai.ie
The AAI is also encouraging members to attend two other events which are being held over the coming weeks.
