The Brand Innovators Deep Dive @ Mars Food will tackle the topic of purpose-driven marketing. The best brands have always had a sense of clear purpose and this has only become more important in an age when study after study tells us younger generations of consumers want more than just a transactional relationship with brands–they want to feel a deeper emotional connection. Why does your brand exist? What problem does it solve? How can it make someone’s life better? Brands that successfully address these questions will lead their respective industries in the coming years and decades.
