SoDA Session: “From Advertising to Product Creation”
The number of brands, full-service agencies and digital shops with innovation labs and product incubators has soared in the last 12 months. Join us at this event as thought leaders from around the world come together to talk about creating digital products that provide real and meaningful value to people. We’ll talk to leaders who have established unique programs that are allowing creativity to come to life in ways that transcend the typical client-agency paradigms.
