It has been many things – reborn, loyal, awoken, inquisitive, victorious and fun, but true to the trends all along. Now, as it is coming of age, it will be even more professional, exciting and jovial.
The Media Trends Conference SEMPL, which will be held in Portorož on 24 and 25 November, is one of those rare opportunities, where you can find out from the internationally acclaimed experts from all over the globe how media trends are created, followed and adapted to their own taste.
If it was a narrow-oriented seminar for media planners in its childhood years, it has already grown into the leading regional conference in the area of marketing, media and communication by the time it became a teenager, but now, with coming of age, it focuses on development, innovation and new technologies.
“SEMPL is an event, a meeting point of strategists and creative minds, digital and analogue thinkers, with excellence as the underlying theme that we have been pursuing for a number of years and will continue to do so in the future,” promised the President of Sempl, Valerija Prevolšek.
Next to attending top-level seminars, you will be able to chat and hang out with other marketing and media experts from the region, keeping your fingers crossed that Semplers, the awards for the best media strategies, will land in the hands of the rightful owner.
This year's SEMPL is a story about 1,000 satisfied visitors, a story about a full conference hall, many inspiring seminars and presentations, a story about new ideas and knowledge, new business contacts, great party and you. If you were with us, you know what we talk about – and if you were not, you will come next year.
