What value do you put on giving your attention to this invite?
What value are we willing to pay for your attention?
The modern advertising and attention model has not changed since it was introduced in the 1920s, however, the platforms and delivery methods have radically altered. And with it transformed our lives.
The attention economy has the potential to fundamentally change the way we interact with organisations and brands. Technology, like facial recognition, now exists to effectively measure attention and emotion. But will it change the world for the better?
Join our panel for this discussion as we explore how we can design the online world to value our attention and a utopian future of advertising we’d like to see.
