When a brand advertises during the Super Bowl, the actual airtime of the
commercial is just one piece of a much larger, integrated marketing
campaign that encompasses everything from websites to social media to
paid search marketing to, yes, public relations.

In this session, learn how BRUNNER made the entire world care about 84
Lumber and what they stood for. Steve will discuss how they overcame
the network banning their first ad, how they pivoted their efforts from
creating a commercial to creating a short film, and how they made a
lumber company from southwestern Pennsylvania a global topic of
conversation for an entire month.

Why Attend:
Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes of a Super
Bowl commercial? Do you want to know how multi-million dollar
(literally) decisions are made? How a first-time Super Bowl advertiser
went from idea to the global agenda in six weeks? In this session, hear
directly from the Director of PR for the agency behind 84 Lumber’s
Cannes Bronze Lion winning commercial, “The Journey.”
