Eat, Drink and Debate the Top Five Trends for the New Year!

By every measure, 2015 was a vintage year for digital. Consumer adoption of new technologies and platforms, including social media and mobile, surged and consumption of original content for the Internet, user generated content, and branded entertainment online, continued to grow by double digits. Fortune 500 brands responded and invested billions more in digital media and advertising technology this year, trying to keep up with these changes in consumer behavior.

What are the major trends and opportunities that brand marketers need to know about for 2016? Join us at our Brand Innovators Napa Valley Retreat as we reflect on the year that was, and take a look at what’s in store for the New Year ahead.

Our invitation only event will be taking place at the historic Indian Springs Resort & Spa in Calistoga, Friday-Sunday, December 4-6. Known for the restorative powers of their mineral pools, fed by thermal water from local geysers, the resort has hosted innovators and visionaries for over 100 years. We have also organized inspirational wine tastings and pairings at some of the most prestigious estates and eating establishments in the Valley.

For additional information, please contact Brandon Gutman at, today.

We look forward to harvesting your thoughts and ideas with us in Napa!
