Consumer Engagement (CE) — building long term sustainable relationships with your consumers, trust, and communities and networks of users — is the holy grail of brand management. The Internet and digital media, in general, is impacting every aspect of Consumer Engagement. Powerful new tools, including digital video, social media, mobile devices and tablets, in-game advertising, content marketing, and gamification have empowered both brands and their consumers. As we move from an analog to digital culture and from mass communication to a more personalized approach to Consumer Engagement, it is essential that brand marketers embrace all of the online resources available to them to market their products and services to their consumers most efficiently. Brand Innovators Consumer Engagement will provide brand marketers, from Fortune 500 and other leading brands, with an important forum to share success stories and best practices about what’s working in Consumer Engagement.
“As technology continues to fundamentally transform the brand-consumer relationship, Brand Innovators is one of the few events where I can take back learning that will have a direct and real impact on my business. I look forward to driving the discussion on how big brands and companies can keep pace with this transformation and continue to satisfy the consumer.”
— Ashwin Nathan, Director, Digital, Frito Lay Portfolio, PepsiCo
“I don’t go to many big conferences, where the material is often watered down and its harder to have meaningful dialogue. Brand Innovators is a refreshing change of pace – a more intimate curated group of smart and driven people who have a lot of informed opinions. Its well worth the time.”
— Rich Lesperance, Head of Digital Marketing and Emerging Media, Walgreens
“In a sea of conferences fueled by pitches disguised as insight — brand innovators provides a respite where client-side peers can go to learn, refuel and be a part of a community. It’s been a long time coming.”
