SPEAKERS
greg swan

Greg Swan is the Head of Digital at Fallon and he will be giving this years keynote titled: 

WTF is Advertising in 2020? 

It’s a crazy era to be in advertising and marketing communications. Instagram is losing its likes. The FTC is redefining the definition of an “ad.” And influencers are using #ad even when they aren’t being paid! In era of demetrification, deepfakes, A.I. and #sponcon, what even is advertising as we look at the year to come? Join Fallon’s head of digital and social, Greg Swan, for a conversation about the trends to watch in the coming year, and real-world examples of how creatives and brand strategists are adapting to the changing nature of our industry.
