MOST REQUESTED KEYNOTES
DIGITAL TO PHYSICAL - CONNECTING THE DOTS IN AN OMNI-CHANNEL WORLD
Over the past few years customer expectations around brand engagement and interactions have changed drastically, largely driven by the ubiquity of mobile, the growth of Big Data and advancements in both IoT and AI. Now customers expect a seamless and consistent brand experience regardless of where, when or how they are engaging or buying - online and off. For brands, this shift in expectation requires a holistic, integrated approach focused on creating frictionless customer experiences that span both digital and physical touchpoints.
In this session, we'll look at best-in-class examples from brands leading the way in omni-channel commerce and experiences, learn how to optimize the ever-evolving connection between digital and physical and gain insight into how user expectations are affecting your brand from the outside in.
FUTURE FOCUS: 5 CONTENT MARKETING TRENDS THAT WILL RULE IN 2019
The marketing landscape is evolving at an exponential rate as consumers and brands rapidly adopt new technologies and behaviors, so much so that 76% of professional marketers feel “that marketing has changed more in the past 2 years than in the previous 50”.
To help brands and marketers leverage this disruption to create opportunity instead of being crushed by it, this session will explore emerging trends in content marketing that can help future proof your marketing strategy and brand in 2019, and beyond.
F*#K THE OLD BOYS CLUB: HOW WOMEN ARE REWRITING THE RULES OF BUSINESS
For years the “Old Boys Club” dominated formal and informal business relationships and decisions across industries and verticals. These exclusive clubs, both physical and metaphorical, have been the bastions of true power in business, media and government, and they have traditionally been off limits to women and minorities.
But, in the age of #metoo, women and their allies are breaking down old power structures by focusing on building the same types of support and mentoring infrastructure that men have always been able to take advantage of with one key difference- they’re intentionally putting diversity and inclusion at the forefront of these organizations, institutions, and communities.
The Invisible Frontier: Voice UI and What It Means For
Your Brand/Content Strategy
In 2017 35.6 M Americans used a voice-activated assistant device at least once a month, a year-over-year increase of 128.9%. And it is predicted that 50% of all searches will be voice searches by 2020.
Consumers are rapidly adopting voice-based services and technologies, and are more frequently utilizing these devices and tools at home, on-the-go, and at work. Brands need to rethink their approach to content strategy and development as well as how they think about 'search' in a world where the interface is increasingly invisible. This is the Invisible Frontier.
In this session, we will share research and data on the current state of the industry, where it is going, and how your brand can get started with building a strategy and plan for leveraging Voice UI in 2019 and beyond.
