How crazy do you have to be to start a VR project?

powered by Direct Media Serbia

Do you really love innovation or do you just admire it? Why do we love virtual reality and what do we need to know about it? Can VR become a new medium? How can you convince a Client to participate in a project that lasts for several months and seems to have no end? How can you animate everyone around you to support your project which seemingly has no sense?

If you are a true fan of VR, find the answers to these questions in a virtual interview with:

Best Of Regional Neuro-Marketing Cases by Valicon

Inspiration or revelation, problem illumination or solutions do not come as accidentally and suddenly as we thought. More often they come quite deliberately. The inspiratory phase in the creative process can be accelerated through clear insight into a problem that is not visible at first glance. The main challenges lie below the surface. The details below the surface will be shown through neuro-marketing measurements with the help of electroencephalography (EEG) and “infrared” tracking eye movement as well as the most famous-movie-car-transporting-company “Krstić and son.” What are the additional business transactions and how do you, in the pre-war society of 1941 open up a new revenue stream? Who did not pay for the ticket? Old man? Only the old man? What ticket? Plane ticket!!!! “Who’s singin’ over there?”

Croatian Telecom as a start up accelerator

powered by Hrvatski Telekom

Even though Croatian Telecom is mostly known as Croatia’s largest telecommunications operator, this is also a company that is engaged in many other activities – for example, they sell electricity and even help creative students and start-ups in the realization of their ideas. HT’s STEM HUB, HT Innovation Camp, hackathon and a general sponsorship of the prestige Idea Knockout competition in cooperation with the Bug tech magazine are only some of the activities with which Croatian Telecom formats the restless ideas of juvenile creators. Considering the fact that one of the main prizes of the game is a trip to Las Vegas, then the best question for this lecture is – how?

The New Era of Marketing: How Can Technology Make You More Successful in Your Job?

powered by SAP

Evolution is transforming marketing into an increasingly technical function. This happened because of the predominance of digital channels in high volumes of business as opposed to being just a channel of communication. In the process, big data – huge amounts of information that marketing organizations gathered from consumers across all interaction points – provided additional tools for marketing in order to add value in using digital channels. This was further reinforced by improved capabilities in experienced management technologies that enabled contextually relevant communications and interactions and mass personalization. This session will explore how exactly can technology help marketing functions to perform better; what the leading brands are doing and why a scientific approach is needed in creating a new era of advertising.  As marketing is tasked to simultaneously inform and inspire, technology is here to help do it with ease and impact. See it live!

Post deadline – stories from the field

powered by Profil

Croatian bookshelves have recently received a unique literary edition that offers an insight into the world of domestic foreign policy journalists. “Our man on the field” in this case is a powerful collection of experienced reporters from print and online media, conveniently gathered with a common goal to share what they have never shared with the public – how they feel when the cameras turn off, what can we learn from a Polisario soldier about Yugoslavia, why it’s important to have Vegeta in the Seychelles and just what kind of memorial residue they carry from Lampedusa, Ukraine, Syria… The report collection “Post deadline – stories from the field” were written by 14 current and former foreign policy journalists – Bisera Fabrio, Ivana Dragičević, Boris Orešić, Renata Rašović, Ana-Bella Leikauff, Jasmina Kuzmanović, Nataša Barac i Zorana Bajt, Elizabeta Gojan, Dragan Nikolić, Hrvoje Krešić, Josip Šarić, Jerko Bakotin and  Snježana Pavić. According to the publisher, Profil Knjiga, the collection brings reports and stories about interesting locations described in an unconventional and very personal manner. It can be found in bookstores starting September 13th and its first promotion will be at the Weekend Media Festival.

Unleashing Creative Potentials

If creativity and innovation are key to growth and development of individuals and organizations, what can we do to maximize their potential? What are the challenges and limitations that don`t allow us to be creative 24/7 and when we prefer? Once we have identified limitations of the creativity and innovation processes, we are able to manage them and use them to create meaningful innovations that bring value. Meaningful innovations shouldn`t come as a result of random events and ingenuity of individuals, but rather as an end result of a structured process within the company innovation system. A structured innovation system allows creative ideas and innovations to be generated as logical conclusions, rather than random events. Hence a company does not depend on market movements and fluctuations, but is able to create and drive markets and perceptual monopolies that are a meaningful source of long-term competitive advantage. Therefore, the lecture “Unleashing Creative Potentials” will give insight into the value creation process and introduce tools that are key to achieving creative and innovative potentials and that enable us to manage them.
