Mobile advertising, the segment with the most spectacular growth between 2014-2017

Conference Arena, part of MIG, is organising the 6th edition of the Mobile Advertising Congress on March 21st, 2015 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Bucharest. The Mobile Advertising Congress is one of the most critical events in the sector in Southeast Europe and focuses on the opportunities and challenges of the mobile environment as well as the latest trends in mobile marketing.

 “The increased interest in mobile is owed to the transformative impact smartphone use has had over customer purchasing behaviour. Personalised campaigns, location-based marketing and mobile payments are just some of this year’s trends that will transform brands in the eyes of the consumer. Changes are taking place rapidly, and access to the latest information in the most accessible manner and the opportunity to interact with the most important suppliers in the field make the 2015 Mobile Advertising Congress the event with the most visionary marketers per square meter.”Mădălina Vilău | Managing Director, Marketing Insiders Group and founder of Conference Arena.

“For over 6 years, Vodafone Romania has been dedicating this event to those interested in trends in the mobile advertising sector. This year, we have a new vision, and we’re blending together the communication side with the newest trends in the m-commerce sector. This way, our participants will be able to enjoy presentations and case studies curated by experts in the field who have accepted our invitation to be a part of the Mobile Advertising Congress.” Horațiu Dimulescu | Manager for M-Commerce and Wholesale at Vodafone Romania.

“The State of Affairs in Online Retail in 2015” is a study that has recently been published by Shop.org alongside Forrester Research and has found that 8 out of 10 US retailers selling their products online will increase their mobile marketing budget by 20% in 2015. The report also found that mobile purchases have increased by 50% compared to 2014.

In Romania at the end of 2014, there were 7.5 million smartphones, 22.6 million SIM cards and 9.3 million active subscription plans, according to data from ANCOM and 9% of all internet traffic in Romania is generated on mobile devices, according to a study realised by the research and consultancy company Gemius in 2014. Customers prefer to spend their time surfing the web from their smartphones on public transport, when shopping, at work and at home. The percentage of smartphone usage is almost constant throughout the day, except for the period between 9 and 11 p.m. during the workweek, and 9 and 10 p.m. during weekends when users are most active.

Mobile advertising is the segment with the most spectacular growth in Romania, and it’s projected to become more and more visible in advertising consumption between 2014 and 2017, due to mobile device acquisition and technological innovation that supports advertising, according to a study by Zenith Media. Mobile advertising is still lagging behind media consumption through mobile devices, which leaves a lot of room for growth in the field. According to the same study, in 2015 the mobile budgets of Romanian companies are predicted to reach 1% of total advertising consumption and 7% of investments in the digital sector. 

This year the Mobile Advertising Congress is on its 6th edition and will bring together visionary national and international leaders with expertise in the online environment, entrepreneurs, marketing professionals, bloggers and those who are passionate about technology and mobile advertising innovation. The 2015 Mobile Advertising Congress will take place on March 31st at the Intercontinental Hotel in Bucharest. The moderator of this event will be Cristian China Birta, “the most used blogger” by agencies amongst bloggers who have collaborated with agencies in 2014, according to a top realised by Revista Biz.

The event is supported by Vodafone Romania – Presenting Sponsor and Media Partners Marketing Portal, Manager.ro, AdHugger, GadgetTrends, Promo afaceri, Learning Network, 9AM, Romania Libera, Jurnalul de Afaceri, Orasul Meu, mediaTRUST.
