How digital communication and web marketing can be effective in communicating, promoting and improving Mega Events


The course aims to provide the basic theoretical / practical information to become more aware of how to catch the opportunities offered by new technologies in the world of communication. A mega event like Expo2015 has online communication as a key medium for marketing and visibility.

The Summer School will enable foreign and Bicocca students visiting Expo to learn how to communicate online and do online marketing of a "big event" of global relevance, in addition to understanding the principles of digital communications strategy. Theoretical assumptions that determine the benefits and the feasibility of digital communications and digital publishing will also be discussed.
