VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Just a few more days to get tickets for the BC Chapter of the American Marketing Association (BCAMA) Breakfast Speaker Series on January 31, 2013. We are featuring four of Vancouver's powerhouses in advertising to share their insight into key trends for 2013. Presenting their thoughts are marketing experts Lance Saunders (DDB Canada), Alvin Wasserman (Wasserman and Partners), Lance Neale (Station X) and Ute Preusse (Cossette), followed by a panel discussion. Reprising her role as moderator for the panel discussion will be Claire Booth.

Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity for find out how these great minds think! Find out what fads to stay away from and what key trends to adopt.

Lance Saunders, Executive Vice President and Managing Director at DDB Canada, has successfully demonstrated they can rise above the fads by winning four awards in the Communication Arts' 2012 Advertising Annual. He will share some secrets of their success with big cultural game-changing patterns that will impact the way we think about branding and communications for the next five years. He also promises to keep it jargon free from not expounding on things like "brand ecosystems" or "creating digital strategies for a post-digital world."

From Wasserman and Partners, we have Alvin Wasserman, President of the largest full-service advertising agency in BC. Having worked on major accounts in retail, packaged goods, travel, communications, entertainment, union, public sector and social marketing, he has helped shape some of BC's best known brands across the country.
