Touch and Go – The activating power of the tangible

Over the past decade, we’ve seen digital prompt a new role for physical media as a channel of inspiration and experience activation – a role so compelling that digital pure-plays are taking note and rethinking the role of physical in their own business models. But what of the physical communication? Does print advertising still have a role to play in today’s hyper-digitized path to purchase? How can digital communications break the barrier and engage physically, for a more immersive, realistic experience? To answer these questions, we begin with an understanding of the human senses. Touch a fascinating sense, because it conveys movement, social interaction and quality of an object. As market researchers, understanding touch can open up new insights about perceived product characteristics and more. Diana Lucaci of True Impact will describe how Canada Post and True Impact undertook a major consumer neuroscience study comparing how the consumer’s brain responds to physical and digital forms of advertising. The research provides insight into the brain’s response to direct mail and digital advertising, and lays the groundwork for the optimal sequence of media.

This event is free and is open to all market research, insights and analytics professionals. It will be held at the Environics Research event space at Suite 900, 33 Bloor Street East on November 12, 2019. Networking begins at 6:30pm followed by presentations from 7pm-8pm and networking from 8pm-9pm.
