Web Summit Day 2. I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Colm Boohig for Storyful, on how Caspar and I built @influencer and the direction we see our company and the rest of the industry heading in. We spoke a lot about video content, a topic that is continually coming up during discussion about the future of influencer marketing and social media. As our attention spans get shorter, still image is increasingly less able to hold our attention. As followers want to get closer to creators, video is increasingly the rawest and most authentic way to make this connection. There is no doubt that video holds an important place in the future of influencer marketing, especially as formats like VR and AR become more readily available. I’m excited to see what the future holds for video. Have you adapted your marketing strategy to integrate this medium yet?
Briant "Beehigh" Biggs is the Director of Mobile Roc Nation and the founding partner Chairman of Unanimous Games. He is the older cousin of Jay-Z. Prior to the birth of Roc Nation Briant, Jay-Z and childhood friends founded an independent record label, Roc-A-Fella records. The label was a success and signed a partnership with Def Jam Music Group.
In addition to its three keynote speakers, the conference will be filled with panel discussions covering various topics on the state of influencer marketing in the GCC.
ITP Live will also reveal the results of our influencer marketing survey at the conference and all attendees will be provided with a free report.

KEYNOTE SESSION: BRIANT BIGGS, ROC NATION
Founder of Roc Nation, Briant Biggs, talks about the changing landscape on digital and social media in the world of music and gaming. He'll shed light on unique collaborations, concepts and how the influencer economy is shaping the way of the future.
CONFLUENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
What are the most promising strategies for attracting, engaging and converting ideal customers? How does a marketer find the right influencers? In this session, we'll talk to industry experts and highlight case studies that show we can use the right tools to create an impact.
THE RISE OF MICRO-INFLUENCERS
Various studies have shown that micro-influencers have high rates of engagement. And brands are keener than ever before to tap into the power of their word-of-mouth marketing (as opposed to partnering with the idolized celebrity influencer). The only issue? Finding the right and relevant pool of micro-influencers is time-consuming.
In this session, we will discuss the pros and cons of using micro-influencers and highlight campaign success stories.
GAME ON: GAMING INDUSTRY AND INFLUENCER MARKETING
Is the gaming industry taking the market share from every other form of media? With the game industry growing new products and technology and raking in billions of dollars, we ask our international panelists if this is just the beginning of monetization for the gaming industry.
