Recognized marketing and communication experts in the jury

She will be accompanied by Valentin Bufolin, Head of Marketing at Lidl Slovenia, Jelena Čadjenović,  Director of Brand and Corporate Image at Vip mobile, Belma Hadžiomerović, Director of Marketing, Corporate Communication, and Sustainable Management at Raiffeisen Bank, Iva Kaligarić, Super Executive CEO at Señor, Mario Lovrić, Executive Director of UM Zagreb and UM Ljubljana, Lea Stanković, Executive Director at Communis DDB, Ivan Tušek, Head of Content and Creative Strategies at Degordian, and Dino Zupančič, Director and Partner at Agency 101.


President of the jury, Eva Aljančič, assured us that the best media strategy in 2019 in the region will have to contain surpluses in all elements that are part of the media strategy, and therefore have a good understanding of the problem or the challenge it solves, have a good strategy, creative idea, and confirm all together with the results. “We will search for emotions and reason. Goose bumps and Excel. Yin and Yang. As you wish. But both,”Aljančič added.

"SEMPL is showing more and more muscles in recent years, especially in the fields of programme and competition. The vibe outside the conference halls also leaves a very good feeling."
