SEMPL joined forces with the media company Media24 again and prepared a special issue of the SEMPL 24/7 magazine. Along with interesting interviews with the key speakers at this year's conference we also reveal why are the winners of the Sempler Awards more focused, smarter and more confident.
In addition to opinions of long-time friends of SEMPL, we explored an exciting world of virtual reality with Simon Gosling, while Kusuma Chumpuree-Reyntjes revealed that viral hits can be predicted with as much as 90% probability. Both speakers revealed what they will be talking about at SEMPL and why it pays off to know more about VR and video advertising.
We also present the last year's Sempler Award winners, while Darko Bosnar (Imago Ogilvy, Croatia), the winner of the Grand Sempler, and Marko Vičič (Futura DDB), last year's jury president, speak in detail how to convince the jury.
