Here is what happened @FestivalOfMedia #FOMG14 #FOMGAwards

all other stuff,PPT/ cool decks — thebrainbehind @ 15:34

What a wonderful Festival it has been! It was better and even more impressive than the one last year. Basically it was huge. So many presentation to see, so many people to connect. At one point you had to sacrifice which presentation to see over another one. I met so many awesome people B. Bonin Bough @boughb,Oliver Luckett @revilopark and Mona EltahawyV @monaeltahawy just to name a few. Some of the decks that I could get my hands on, I have already shared with you, but many more to follow so stay tuned! They will be published with #FOMG14.

During day one in my view, the show stole David Shing, he delivered tones of new digital insights . He talked about the future of digital and media, and how brands can harness this innovation to increase engagement with consumers, as we move in the “Age of Interest”. Check his interview right from the floor of the festival below

Then, I also loved the insights that Steve King CEO of Zenith revealed that I have already shared with you. See his interview below.

Also very inspiring was the presentation of Peter Espersen from Lego that he spoke about Building Communities. You can view his entire presentation below

Day 2 was even more impressive! My mind was blown away from the presentations that Mona Eltahawy @monaeltahawy and Oliver Luckett @revilopark gave. Mona talked about whether or not we have true freedoms while Oliver talked about how you Build Organic Social Movements. Both of them left me speech less! Yous guys just ruled!!!!

I also enjoyed the presentation from Jon Matonis which I have shared below and also the one Steve Hasker did from Nielsen (I wish I could get my hands on that one to share with you guys.

It was an amazing festival although in my view it should be a day longer. You simply did not have enough time to attend all the presentations and you had to choose one from another.

During the night everybody was dressed up for the awards. I had so much fun with Yury and Lara Ayoub Agha ‏ from Nissan Dubai!! You guys were simply amazing :-)

Starcom MediaVest Group was awarded Agency Network of the Year last night at the Festival of Media Global Awards in the Rome Cavalieri Hotel, with the most winning campaigns across different countries out of any agency. Starcom’s winning entries hailed from Poland, the Philippines, United Kingdom, Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Denmark, and Sweden. The agency came away with Gold for two campaigns: Marabou Chocolate’s ‘The Chocolate with 6,000 Names’ in Denmark, which won The Retail Award, and Prudential’s ‘Warsaw 1935′ in Poland, which was awarded Best Communications Strategy.

UM Australia walked away with both Agency of the Year and Campaign of the Year for their innovative social media campaign ‘XTL’, which encouraged Australian teens to call out disrespectful or inappropriate online behaviour with the hashtag #XTL (crossing the line). Produced by UM for the Department of Families, Housing, Communities and Indigenous Affairs, ‘XTL’ won the Gold for Best Social Media Strategy, as well as the Silver in Best Targeted Campaign and Bronze for The Utility/Public Service Award. The campaign became popular not only over Twitter and Facebook, but also on TV and print media, and 90% of teens surveyed reported using #XTL in the right context.

UM also won awards for two other campaigns in Australia: News Corps’ ‘Fast Front Pages’ (Silver, Best Communications Strategy) and ING Direct’s ‘Spend Your Lunch Well’ (Gold, Best Entertainment Platform). Check all the winners here

Ending I said it last year and I will say it again this festival is all about the connections you make and the people that you get the chance to meet. There is no other event in the world that can give access to such hi profile people from the media world.

IT WAS A BRILLIANT EVENT and C Squared’s organised the event perfectly. You can check more photos from the event here
