It has been reported that a substantial number ofU.S.
based multinational companies’ primary source of growth and profits are linked
to global markets.  New generations of consumers are growing at a rapid
pace in China, India and many
other emerging markets. However, it’s not business as usual when communicating,
connecting and branding on world-wide basis. During this full day conference, we
will examine case studies from leading multinational companies who will share
their lessons learned from a communications and branding perspective. 300
communications and marketing professionals from both the corporate and agency
communities are expected to attend the conference.
