Letter From the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher There are only two things Canadian marketers can be sure about in 2016: that technology will continue to disrupt the way they do everything from buying ads to gleaning insights for data-driven decision-making, and that the way they tell brand stories needs to become a lot more sophisticated to build trust. Neither of these are challenges that can be overcome by a single individual or organization. It requires a community of peers who can connect, learn ideas and share them widely. That’s where we come in: Marketing is the platform where Canadian advertisers, agencies and creative professionals will solve their most difﬁcult problems and celebrate their successes. The editorial journey we take with our audience can begin anywhere but will live everywhere: This includes live events that spark new relationships or strengthen old ones; online articles that inform, educate and inspire; conversations on video and social media that bring ideas to life; and a print magazine that provides the permanent record of our industry’s best practices. Given our history, reputation and loyal audience, Marketing is also the premium showcase for organizations who want direct access to Canada’s key decision-makers. This media kit will provide you everything you need to get started with us. Let’s start innovating together. 2

“How will ad blocking technology affect marketers’ ability to connect with their audience in 2016? What will the role of the CMO look like in the next year? Who are the next generation of creatives and other professionals you need to watch?
