Art and Science: Getting Claim Substantiation Right

Advertising claims drive the type and level of evidence needed to support the claim. As a result, supporting advertising claims is both an art and a science. What kinds of claims require sensory testing of consumers? When are technical measurements sufficient? What constitutes “competent and reliable” scientific evidence? This expert panel will examine the unique challenges of advertising claim substantiation across a range of industries and review issues relating to comparative claims, NAD trends, and best practices.
