Our Conference is special, because the participants are undergraduates and Doctoral students, outlined Prof. Valentin Goev. Do your research papers by yourselves even if they don`t look well, don`t use copy-paste option because if you do it once you`ll do it every time. Do not give up if you don`t succeed at once, be tough and persistent, there are enough places for Doctoral students at our university, encouraged the participants in the Forum Prof. Goev. He reminded that the title of PhD had not gone unnoticed by the employers in our country and in Europe.

The Conference becomes a Faculty Forum, every year the number of participants grows and it gives an opportunity for common events for undergraduates and Doctoral students, pointed out Prof. Dimitar Dimitrov. The Dean appealed the participants to take active part in the scientific research activity of UNWE. The employers come when they see that you work and have desire to present new ideas, pointed out Prof. Dimitrov.

Traditionally at the opening of the Conference it was presented one of the reports – it was entitled New Technological Solutions for the Media Marketing Communications elaborated by the Doctoral student Georgy Minev.

The Doctoral student Georgy Minev

Internet gives a large amount of information which is used by the media. The power of the brand is important to trust the data. The media should also have a reliable brand to be recognizable. The great challenge to media marketing is the permanent creation of a product. Another characteristic stamp is that the life of news is too short, pointed out Georgy Minev. The media should generate incomes and they come from advertising. Over the last ten years the quality of the news has changed and the serious employers look for opportunities to advertise in the investigative media, said the Doctoral student.

The undergraduates and Doctoral students were awarded Certificates of Participation in the Forum.
