The opening at the Main Marketing Stage was marked by a presentation given by Alain Heureux, President and CEO of IAB Europe, who pointed out interesting facts about the digital industry in the region and highlighted the challenges and opportunities for online business.

Next on the agenda was a presentation by Marc Bresseel, Vice President, Global Marketing, at Microsoft Advertising. “Good advertising lies in stories well told; stories which emotionally touch the consumer. Digital world is the one which creates new ways of storytelling,” Bresseel said.

One of the most expected lectures was undoubtedly given by Rick Kelley, Head of Mid-Market Sales in EMEA, Facebook, who presented interesting statistics about the social network.
