The World Cup in Qatar might seem like a long way away but for TV planners, buyers, and the broadcasters it has been on their minds for quite some time, The Drum even wrote about it as far back as 2015.
In the episode, John and Mark discuss the "conundrum" of TV planning between September till December with brands having to create campaigns that cover back to school, Christmas, and Black Friday on top of the World Cup.
