the summit

Brand Innovators Made in America will look at iconic American brands and their impact on the world.

From Campbell’s Soup and Chevrolet to Kellogg’s and Kleenex to Sears and Starbucks, America is home to hundreds of the world’s most iconic brands. For more than two hundred years, entrepreneurs like Levi Strauss, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, Sam Walton and Steve Jobs, to name a few, have changed our lives and improved our standard of living, by creating new and useful products that never existed before. What is it about America that inspires us to innovate and invent new products, if not whole new industries, improve people’s lives, and constantly challenge the status quo? And, why have American companies excelled at marketing their products to the rest of the world, finding loyal customers in virtually every country on earth? Brand Innovators Made in America will look at the DNA behind America’s most successful brands and why these brands continue to drive the world’s economy.

Brand Innovators Made in America will also address how digital media and advertising technology — including digital video, social media, content marketing, Big Data, E-Commerce, and Internet enabled phones, tablets and automobiles — is impacting how American brands engage with their consumers.

Please join us at Brand Innovators Made in America at The Ford Motor Company Conference and Event Center, Thursday, July 10, 2014.

This event is complimentary to qualified brand marketers from Fortune 500 and other leading brands.

the buzz

“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.”
