Tablets: Redefining Consumer Experiences

09 May 2013

As a nation, the UK is media and technology obsessed with over half of the population using two devices to connect and 30% using three or more devices to get online – four times higher than the European average*. So as the appetite for tablet devices increases, what are the emerging challenges and opportunities being presented to advertisers?

In Brand Republic’s next webcast we present a recent study by Yahoo! exploring the impact that tablets are having on consumer media experiences. This study explores how consumers love the ability to touch, hear and see everything tablets have to offer and how marketers can tap into this to engage and connect with these consumers.

Tune in live for the latest consumer research, creative insights and real business case studies:

  • Maximise the way this sleek, dynamic device interplays with other media to connect and interact with your audience
  • From the browsing renaissance to video and shopping (t-commerce), revolutionise your marketing to offer a rich and rewarding consumer experience through tablet
