Canarias Comunica focuses on the synergy between virality and brand identity for success

  •  Jorge Sandua, from PutosModernos; Domingo Olivo, from Sony Music; and Amparo Cantalicio, from Meridianum Talent Lab, were the speakers at this 12th Canarian Communication Forum.

Capturing the audience’s attention is no easy task, but it can be achieved. The speakers at this edition of Canarias Comunica, the 12th edition of the Canarian Communication Forum, demonstrated this. Much-desired virality can be achieved through clever marketing campaigns with humour at the core of the message or genuine media hits.
