Who are this year's top brand marketers? And would Arnold Schwarzenegger run for president if he could (spoiler: yes). Adweek's panel of writers and editors is back to talk about our annual Brand Genius issue, along with the return of REI's #OptOutside, annoying drones, why marketers love being called f*ckfaces and our favorite ads of the week.
It's one of the biggest weeks of the year for marketers, with the ANA Masters of Marketing conference underway. So our panel of Adweek editors and writers is talking retail, gender shifts and the rise of Jet.com. We also chat about Trump's late arrival to the ad scene and Wieden + Kennedy's new leadership shifts.
Will Samsung's explosion problem drive the brand out of the smartphone game? How many people watched the second presidential debate, and where? Is L.A. the next great advertising city? Does New York smell like trash? Our panel of Adweek editors and writers weighs in on all the week's weighty issues in marketing, media, advertising and tech.
Who made Adweek's annual Young Influentials list of 40 power players under 40? Our panel also talks about the slew of new Google devices coming to market, and we reflect on the loss of our globally respected colleague, Noreen O'Leary, who lost her battle to cancer at age 59.
