Italian wine people: Meet the Agencies

Six Media Agencies, six case studies: from the role of PR to branding strategies in foreign markets, from storytelling to specific communication strategies for wineries, and even from networking opportunities on LinkedIn to the importance of a strong communication identity, the guest Media Agencies will present a concrete example of their daily work.

The goal of this session is to shed light on the role media agencies play today and the real value they bring to their clients. The audience will explore the main types of activities that a media agency can perform for its clients, find out the results achieved for the specific companies mentioned, and finally have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers.
