THE AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL REVIEW TO HOST EVENT WITH DAVID DROGA DURING AANA GLOBAL MARKETER WEEK

21 March 2014

The Australian Financial Review has partnered with the Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA) to present an exclusive event with founder and creative chairman David Droga from Droga5 as part of the AANA’s Global Marketer Conference.

As part of the conference, The Australian Financial Review is hosting an exclusive breakfast with guest speaker David Droga, Australia’s most internationally awarded creative advertising export, for 30 of the nation’s leading chief marketing officers.

The AANA Global Conference is the highlight of Global Marketer Week and will be held in Sydney on 26 March, with 8 international speakers from Acer, Adidas Group, Kimberly-Clark, Unilever, Google and Diageo Reserve and 400 delegates.

Droga founded Droga5, which is headquartered in New York, in 2006. He was previously Worldwide Creative Director of Publicis Worldwide and Executive Creative Director of Saatchi & Saatchi London. In 2013, Droga5 was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies and was Adweek’s 2012 Agency of the Year.

The Australian Financial Review is committed to providing valuable insights from business leaders to the marketing community and we are delighted to secure someone of the calibre of David Droga to share his creative and business acumen with this influential audience,” Fairfax National Trade Marketing Director Chelsea Wymer said.

“This is a unique event for the AFR and one which we believe will generate a lot of interest in the marketing community.”

"In an intimate closed session, David Droga will discuss his view on the future of marketing and media trends on entertainment and brands. Droga5 made headlines with its estimated US$115 million deal to partner with Hollywood super agents WME who represent A-listers Charlize Theron, Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe and hundreds of others."

AANA Chief Executive Sunita Gloster said: “We are delighted that The Australian Financial Review has created this exclusive and valuable event as part of our Global Marketer Week. This is a great opportunity for marketers to hear one of the world’s most inspiring and successful creative business leaders in an intimate environment.”
