Advertising Conference (AdCon) is an annual marketing convention organized by senior BSBA Marketing students at the University of the Philippines Visayas in cooperation with the College of Management (UPV CM), Marketing Society Incorporated (UPV MSI), and College of Management Student Council (CMSC). Originally named Advertising Camp (AdCamp) until 2017, AdCon has been imparting invaluable insights, inspiring and groundbreaking perspectives, and driving transformative actions consistently for over two decades through idea-focused, science-based, and pragmatic plenary talks by field experts and professionals.
After a 2-year hiatus, ADCON makes a sensational comeback with the theme “Spill The Tea: Reinventing Experiences by Unraveling Marketing Psychology Hacks.” ADCON will come out in the open this year, featuring brave, unfiltered discussions about the psychology behind marketing in three of the biggest and most intriguing fields: Business, Lifestyle, and Entertainment!
On top of that, AdCon22 will officially host THREE virtual events.
Day 1: Business
AdCon22 Day 1 kicked off the conference on April 23, 2022, by focusing on the ever-dynamic and competitive business landscape with the theme: Mind on Your Business: Leveraging the Power of the Human Mind. AdCon22 Day 1 featured an exclusive look at E-commerce budol tactics, post-pandemic marketing strategies, and unusual (but viral) storytelling through a scientific and psychological approach granted personally by experts from industry giants.
