Keynote — The Rise of the Mobile Consumer

Chuck Martin, CEO of the Mobile Future Institute and best-selling author

The mobile consumer is exerting huge influence at retail, and current patterns indicate that trend will only increase. This session will explore the 6 stages of the Mobile Shopping Life Cycle — each thriving with opportunities for marketers to engage with m-powered consumers and to influence their choices. We’ll explore the strategic touchpoints that can turn window shopping into cart-dropping.


Global Goldrush

There are more than 6.5 billion mobile phones in use worldwide and in 2013 shipments are expected to reach 1 billion for the first time. While growth is being fueled by developing markets like China and India, U.S. penetration is at close to 100%, with mobile ad spending up 145% for the first six months of 2013 to $3 billion, according to PWC. Who is benefiting and how can your brand get in on the action?

Keynote — Never Mind Black Friday, Here’s Mobile Monday

Matevz Klanjsek, Co-founder and CPO, Celtra

As the holiday season is quickly approaching, retailers will again be looking at online sales to save the day. All eyes will be on mobile and mobile will indeed play an increasingly important role, but in quite a different way than most marketers will expect. With the number of mobile ads more than doubling compared to last season, but retail sales on mobile devices expected at a rather disappointing 15% of total online sales, what is the role of mobile advertising in the e-commerce world and why is mobile more important than what the numbers are showing us?


Lunch Hosted By Clear Channel Media + Entertainment



The Connected Car

Forward-thinking auto manufacturers are making custom digital environments part of their brand experience. Smart phone and music sync, unique content offerings and always-on hot-spotting = complete multimedia mobility. In 2011 Nevada became the first state to enact laws for self-driving vehicles. This year’s concept cars feature windshields doubling as display screens and integrated Google Glass. The concept of leisure time behind the wheel is prompting a reevaluation of the personal transportation experience. Join us for a look at the innovations poised to send your marketing into overdrive.
