Honest Ads: 50 Years of Advertising Industry Self-Regulation

May 18-18, 2021 | USA

For the last 50 years in the advertising industry, companies have held each other to a higher standard. In response to the pressures and criticisms of consumerism that had mounted during the previous decade, in 1971 the advertising industry created a mechanism of independent self-regulation that has stood the test of time and technological innovation.

On May 18, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the advertising industry’s system of self-regulation, join the founders of what former Federal Trade Commission Chairman Robert Pitofsky calls “the best example of self-regulation that I am aware of in American industry,” to talk about why this system works, the challenges faced by advertisers and regulators through the years, and the memorable moments in advertising’s history that we will not soon forget...as well as some that we wish we could.

Ad Age Next: Multicultural Marketing

June 29-29, 2021 | USA

In an era when some brands and agencies have increasingly deemphasized multicultural marketing efforts in favor a “total marketing” approach, many diverse voices in the industry are claiming the shift ignores Black and Brown consumers in favor of “general market” consumers, a euphemism for a majority white population that ignores what America looks like today. Generation Z is the most diverse demographic in U.S. history. It’s also the largest and most valuable consumer base for marketers. Although the latest census data still projects America becoming a majority minority country by 2044, the truth is we are already a multicultural society. And after the social justice movement brought about a moment of reckoning for the ad industry in 2020, today’s American consumer has forced brands to wear their values on their sleeves, or risk consequences.
