Bath-based SearchStar, one of the UK’s largest, independent ‘pay per click’ (PPC) and digital media buying agencies, aims to challenge current thinking and provide professionals with fresh ideas and perspectives on the marketing industry and specifically, how digital advertising can deliver for both branding and performance advertisers.

Dan Fallon, founder and MD of SearchStar, said: “There is about to be a game-changing moment for the marketing industry. Predications have been made indicating that by the end of this year, global digital advertising spend will overtake traditional TV spend for the first time. We know that digital isn’t yet the complete answer but we want to look at the role it can play and how this role is growing, especially for younger and increasingly tech-savvy audiences.

“Our conference will look at how online branding can assist the performance of direct response campaigns, the rise of the social ad platforms and what best-in-class looks like for driving response in 2018.

“It is the place to be for businesses who want to get unique insight into how technology will change the way we build brands and what developments are happening in 2018 and beyond.”

In addition to informative and inspiring talks from leading professionals, delegates will have an opportunity to learn important tactics to help them stay on top of an ever-changing industry. They will have the opportunity to ask experts in-depth questions throughout the day and network with likeminded professionals.
