When it comes to creating emotional connections with consumers and building brand favorability, it's hard to beat music. Brands love music fans: they are passionate, loyal, social and there are multiple opportunities to reach them through sponsorship activations. The most successful partnerships start with data and insights that connect a brand's objectives with the right music partner, and most importantly offer something meaningful to fans. Matt Yazge, Head of Brand Sponsorships at Nielsen Music will lead a discussion with the global marketing team at Chevrolet on how understanding fans can help drive more successful brand music strategies. 

Get great insights on how brands are thinking about music, and discover how to leverage your artist's fans from the team at the forefront of strategic music partnerships.
