IAB MoVi 2018


The Power of the Digital Consumer was the theme for IAB MoVi 2018, IAB Ireland’s annual Mobile and Video Advertising Conference.

We have entered a new era of brand creation – one in which Direct Brands are forging strong customer relationships, winning meaningful marketing share, and reshaping the way startups and incumbents alike are taking consumer goods and services to market.

IAB MoVi addressed this topic throughout the morning with a range of presentations exploring the Mobile and Video opportunity to really engage, excite and respect these consumers.

Below are links to the presentation or to websites for further information:

The Digital Savvy Consumer

  • Jimmy Larsen, Director, RedC Research presented brand new IAB Ireland commissioned research on the Digital Savvy Consumer identifying the key trends in the path to purchase, interaction between traditional and digital channels, adoption of new shopping technologies, drivers and barriers of digital channels, and segments most likely to embrace the new digital opportunities.   Check out the presentation here.

What Builds Brand Love?

  • Anita Caras, Director, Sales Data Insights for Oath EMEA, took us through an in-depth Oath report in partnership with Kantar Consulting, eliciting the opinions of 150,000 consumers across 13 markets providing the drivers of brand love and individual brand scores.    When you feel love for someone or something, it pushes you to do all sorts of wonderful and crazy things so it makes sense that love is also the most important ingredient for building a successful brand. Love is what takes a brand from good to great, from awareness to affinity and from buyers to followers. But how do we take advantage of this understanding and dig deep to comprehensively explore the drivers behind Brand Love?   For more on this topic, please go to love.com/uk

Using Video to power Consumer Engagement

  • Justin Barrett, Senior Director Operations, Brightcove EMEA presented around how Video moves us.  The most effective videos tell a story, they evoke emotion, get to the heart of your audiences’ pain points or desires, and present an actionable solution.  However, as the use of video becomes increasingly sophisticated, brands are looking for new interactive ways to keep them one step ahead of their competition.   Delivering impactful digital experiences has become a key strategy to power consumer engagement.   Download Justin’s presentation Brightcove NEW_Engagement video trends IAB.
