Excuse Me!: Do Marketers and Chat Really Blend?

Saturday, March 14
2:00PM - 3:00PM

Sheraton Austin
Capitol Ballroom
701 E 11th St

When messaging apps first exploded last year most analysts saw little role for advertisers in these havens of chat, disposable and private messages. Now even ad-averse leaders like WhatsApp are looking for ways to bring brands into the conversation. But is this the right environment for marketing? Do chatters really want to be distracted from one another here? And what have advertisers gotten from early partnerships with Kik, Tango, LINE and SnapChat? Both marketers and message app providers explore whether chat really is a new medium they can bank on.
