What’s Next in Digital: Social, Mobile and Emerging Media

Looking ahead to 2019 and beyond, this discussion will explore how the marketing and media industries will evolve as digital media and emerging technologies continue to drive every aspect of brand marketing and the marketing funnel in general. Social media is changing how brands build 1:1 relationships with their consumers; mobile is becoming the platform of choice for consuming media, entertainment, and for commerce; brands are publishing more original content than ever; and digital video continues to challenge television.

Lean in and learn how today’s foremost brand marketers are using new technologies and embracing new platforms like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, Snapchat, Facebook Live Video, and new digital and data tools (while also refining tried-and-true tools) to reach consumers.

B2B Marketing Tactics: Connecting with Your Customers

B2B and B2C marketing strategies have fundamental, indisputable differences… but can successful B2B tactics be applied to B2C businesses, and vice versa? B2B marketers face unique challenges like talent shortages, changing buyer profiles, commoditization, rampant consolidation, and increasing competition. This discussion will address B2B marketing trends to watch, key differences and similarities with B2C, and what lessons B2B marketers can take from successful B2C strategies, if any.

Keynote: Products, Packaging and Proof: Building Trust into Customer Experience

What if your food, your beauty products or your prescriptions could talk? Tell you where they came from, and where they’ve been? Who had access? If they had been tampered with? If your food was spoiled? If your pharma product was counterfeit and contained banned contents? Xerox’s VP of Customer Experience Eric Weaver will talk about Xerox’s foray into the world of products, packaging and public ledgers – how we sorted through the various flavors of blockchain to find technologies that enable consumers to engage with products in completely new ways, and are working to build full transparency into their provenance. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of how to build trust via CX, use cases for innovative engagement and packaging technologies, and how to sort the technological wheat from the chaff.
Eric Weaver, VP, Customer Experience Practice Lead, Xerox


The Intersection of Brand and CX

Like peanut butter and jelly, Brand and Customer Experience are so much better together. Companies can no longer separate the two and must pull together great experiences in order to drive the right brand outcomes. Come learn how GoDaddy has made the transition from having two separate strategies and dashboards to having one unified brand and experience strategy, even as the org structure hasn’t changed.
Lori Iventosch-James, Senior Director of Customer and Market Research, GoDaddy

Growth Marketing in 2018: User Acquisition to Influencer Strategy

With more products in the market and more ways for your competitors to reach your customers than ever before, growth marketing has become an integral part of the marketer’s toolbox. Successful marketing is no longer only about top-funnel acquisition–it’s about keeping customers engaged and growing your customer base simultaneously. This means focusing on acquisition, retention, loyalty, and activation of your influencers and customer base simultaneously, garnering brand love and staying top of mind throughout the purchase funnel.

What are the growth strategies driving acquisition, engagement, and retention? How are growth teams set up for success? What’s next in growth marketing, and who are the brands winning at growth?

What’s keeping them up at night? What are they excited about? What new technologies and platforms offer novel opportunities to engage their customers in meaningful ways… and which are just shiny objects? Will voice be the next frontier for marketers, or is it a fad? What smart home applications will be the first to gain mainstream adoption? Will emerging applications like VR, AR, and AI change the game forever, or will they fizzle out for marketers?
