Visual Marketing Seminar

Past Events: The World’s First Visual Marketing Seminar – Boosting sales through actionable insights

The first PubLAB visual marketing seminar explores important themes around how drinkers make choices at the bar. Continued innovation in beer styles and formats makes for an increasingly cluttered “barscape” as more and more brands compete for visual attention. We define visual marketing as the configuration of visual brand assets to deliver effective POP messages and the first in our seminar series explores 3 related themes:

  • The importance of targeted messages;
  • Innovative ways to deliver them;
  • The application of science to measure their effectiveness.

In addition to our main presentations we have some interactive sessions designed to enlighten and entertain. These include a demonstration of the very latest technology based POP message delivery system and an opportunity for delegates to put our BrandFindTime concept to the test.

Introduction by Jane Peyton

9.15 – 10.00

The science of distinctiveness, attention and choice by Tim Froggett

Tim will present the latest actionable insights from visual attention research. “Barscapes” are increasingly cluttered and the old adage “unseen is unsold” has never been more relevant. Eye-tracking research allows us to measure visual attention (what consumers look at) and relate it to product choice. Insights gained from eye-tracking research can be used to make products stand out on the shelf and at the bar thereby increasing the probability of choice.

10.00 – 10.45

How not to alienate half of your audience by Jane Peyton

Jane will explore ongoing gender issues around beer marketing. Whether 18% or 80% of women find beer marketing “too masculine” there is still a significant sales opportunity around attracting more women drinkers to the category. Jane will discuss how offensive or sexist beer marketing can be bad business for brand owners and pub owners alike.

10.45 – 11.15

Targeting drinkers at point of purchase by Juha Karppinen

Juha will discuss the insight generation and innovative point of purchase communication capabilities of the Pint Please beer app. Digital technology allows for the aggregation of drinker data and possibilities for accurately targeted and brand relevant communication at point of purchase.
