A new meeting place for communication and promotion agencies: Agency Brands Dating

At the 10th edition, we launched a new meeting event dedicated to agencies specializing in communication, promotion, marketing, PR etc. It was something quite different to the Pitching Sessions: the licensors exclusively adapted their property presentations in a 10-minute bid to win over the agencies.

In total, nearly 40 account managers participated in the event, attending presentations by: Nickelodeon Consumer Products, Nelvana, Mediatoon Licensing, Les éditions Albert René, TF1  Licences, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, and Glénat.


The agencies have since shown their appreciation for the pace of the occasion:

"It was a great idea, really well structured and really well paced.
Well done to all the team who organized the forum and thank you for thinking of the agencies!"

Anne-Laure Delalandre, Pole Marketing Operational, Nineteen Group

"I really embraced the idea of Brand Agency Dating, as much for the quality and content of the presentations, as for the fast paced dynamism and friendliness of the event. And let’s not forget the lunch spread which was top notch! Thank you again!"

Hélène Dablin, Associate Director, Yakacéfé
