How TUI managed it's digital marketing during the biggest crisis ever in modern tourism

The current pandemic has shaken many industries, but you can argue that travel has taken some very hard hits and ups and downs. This meant that TUI needed to question everything they do and how they do things. Consequently, creative testing, automation and measurement/monitoring became crucial pillars to manage the biggest crisis that travel ever encountered.

Plan what will happen, instead of scrolling through pictures of what already did

Over 400 million people come to Pinterest each month to find tomorrow's ideas. That means that we know what's going to be big in the future, even when it seems really small in the present.

Join Louise Richardson, Director of Marketing Europe, as she unveils Pinterest Predicts, a run-down of the top 100 trends across fashion, beauty, travel, food and drink, home and beyond.

Session's Topic

Our Economy, Reimagined

2020 was one of the most transformational years of our lifetimes. We faced situations that few of us had ever imagined, and that fewer businesses had prepared for. Yet well before 2020, we were already grappling with major societal forces - from climate change to the MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements. As the COVID-19 pandemic brought our global economy to a near halt, it exacerbated inequality through its outsize devastation on minorities. With profound societal and economic gaps so apparent, consumers are calling for action. We all know that we must act now.
In this presentation, Alvin Bowles will show that taking action to drive business equality is not only the right thing to do but that there is clear upside in doing so. He will discuss our work at Facebook to catalyze economic empowerment. More importantly, he will open a dialogue around how we take collective action. How do we - Facebook, our partners, and our customers - drive equality together? What should be our new scorecard for success and impact? Where do we go from here? Together, let’s reimagine our economy so that it works for everyone.

    How Deliveroo delivers from brief to ads in 30 minutes or less

    When you first think about Deliveroo, you probably think of getting great food to your house in less than half an hour. Awesome right? But behind the scenes is the real story. This story is one of high growth, huge challenges and an enormous opportunity ahead of us.

    Using Smartly’s Automated Ads and Video Templates, Deliveroo were able to effortlessly generate over 1000 hyper-targeted, bespoke ads for their local restaurant and grocery partners across the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, to let consumers know that they could still get food delivered to their house in their time of need.

    Building Successful Digital Creative Teams

    For many, LEGO has been a beloved brand long before they had the ability to purchase bricks themselves. For decades, the world's most reputable company has continued to evolve beyond toys to theatrical films and games while building trust, reinforcing brand loyalty and developing relationships with audiences.


    In parallel, The LEGO Group’s social media presence has grown from being non-existent, to a best-in-class, fun and engaging experience across leading social platforms, delivering meaningful and engaging interactions with millions of fans every day. In an ever-changing marketing landscape, James will take you through how The LEGO Group has developed a global and evocative social media content strategy across audiences and platforms.

    Finding Incremental Opportunities at Scale with Paid Social

    As your business starts to scale, you will naturally start to diversify and add new channels to your media mix. Over time you will notice that there is a significant amount of overlap across certain tactics, which can slow down your growth and create efficiency challenges.

    So how do you ensure that your ad dollars are reaching incremental customers? In this session, we take a deep dive into how we have explored incremental opportunities at Bombas.

    Our Economy, Reimagined

    2020 was one of the most transformational years of our lifetimes. We faced situations that few of us had ever imagined, and that fewer businesses had prepared for. Yet well before 2020, we were already grappling with major societal forces - from climate change to the MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements. As the COVID-19 pandemic brought our global economy to a near halt, it exacerbated inequality through its outsize devastation on minorities. With profound societal and economic gaps so apparent, consumers are calling for action. We all know that we must act now.

    In this presentation, Alvin Bowles will show that taking action to drive business equality is not only the right thing to do but that there is clear upside in doing so. He will discuss our work at Facebook to catalyze economic empowerment. More importantly, he will open a dialogue around how we take collective action. How do we - Facebook, our partners, and our customers - drive equality together? What should be our new scorecard for success and impact? Where do we go from here? Together, let’s reimagine our economy so that it works for everyone.

    Plan what will happen, instead of scrolling through pictures of what already did

    Over 400 million people come to Pinterest each month to find tomorrow's ideas. That means that we know what's going to be big in the future, even when it seems really small in the present. In fact, eight out of ten of Pinterest’s predictions for 2020 came true – despite it being the least predictable year in recent history.

    Join Louise Richardson, Director of Marketing Europe, as she unveils Pinterest Predicts, a run-down of the top 100 trends across fashion, beauty, travel, food and drink, home and beyond. This isn't your typical trend report. It's a not-yet-trending report - and for brands, it's a window into the future from the platform where people go to plan theirs. Louise will pick out some key trends and discuss how advertisers should capitalise on what's going to be hot in 2021.
