The AEF will host its annual symposium focusing on ethics and creativity in branded content. The symposium is designed to bring together the industry and academia to discuss in an open and unbiased manner the pros and cons of one of the hottest trends in advertising today. The morning will feature a keynote address by one of the industry's most prominent figures. In addition, students from Fordham's Branded Content marketing course will share their points of view on this controversial topic. We will end with a provocative panel discussion involving students, scholars and industry experts. The event promises to be thought-provoking, relevant, and packed with sizzle.
