At this Insights Studio, a global line-up of speakers from the U.S., Hong Kong and India presented their research on what drives influencer followers, consumers’ memory and recognition of brands, the value of sports sponsorships for brands, and disengagement in advertising.
These Journal of Advertising Research authors synthesized their recently published work and offered hands-on, practical guidance and methodologies that advance scholarship.
