The Brand Innovators Deep Dive @ Mars Food will tackle the topic of purpose-driven marketing. The best brands have always had a sense of clear purpose and this has only become more important in an age when study after study tells us younger generations of consumers want more than just a transactional relationship with brands–they want to feel a deeper emotional connection. Why does your brand exist? What problem does it solve? How can it make someone’s life better? Brands that successfully address these questions will lead their respective industries in the coming years and decades.

RoundTable Discussion – Purpose Driven Brands

A brand with a strong purpose not only helps the overall good of society but also helps customers know what they stand for through purpose-driven brand actions. Consumers can quickly find out if a brand is acting on their promise, so it is crucial for brands to be transparent, create connections and a strong relevance with their consumers. In this discussion, marketers address the tough questions: Why does the brand exist? What role does it play in customers’ lives? What challenge does it solve? How would the world be different without it?
