Coco Con: Media

In this edition of Coco Con, we will focus on this ever-changing world and the current landscape as it relates to the digital age. With the advent of social platforms, the digitizing of traditional media, true power of advertising and the rise of influencer marketing, we will explore how those intersections affect us all and what we can expect in the future.
