Jenelle Tilling, chief marketing officer for KFC-owner Yum! Brands, will discuss the need for speed and cutting through noise in the rapid paced world of fast food, with a panel later in the day featuring IAB Mexico’s Jesús Benitez, Banamex’ Ernesto Nava y Lara and Coca Cola Media House Alejandro Castillo on the best ways to use mobile advertising in the region.

Influencer Gina Ybarra will receive a live brand brief on stage which she will then read and dissect as part of a panel on how brand influencer partnerships can be heightened. There will also be a presentation uncovering the almost untouched media hub of Cuba with Local Planet’s Manuel de la Rica, and Maria Givens from LVMH will discuss the social conundrum of the luxury market in a fireside chat.

Founder partner Teads will provide a keynote on measurement of video engagement, and Telefonica’s Dan Rosen will discuss the key drivers of ad context. Clear Channel and Millward Brown will also provide keynotes on digitalisation with OOH and the ROI of video ad campaigns respectively.
