This conference programme aims to give senior industry professionals access to new ideas, solutions and innovations to help take their departments and companies forward. The agenda is pitched at a high level and we endeavour to present new case studies and new thinkers on the programme each year.

Keynote and seminar sessions give a high-level view of the  industry, offering predictions and insights to help delegates form their future strategies. The interactive workshops and discussion groups complement the larger sessions by drilling down into specific issues, allowing delegates to share their collective experiences and to learn how their peers are dealing with similar situations.

  • Vom Storytelling zum Storydoing. Sind Sie bereit für den Konsumenten 3.0?

    Fabio Emch, Chief Executive Officer at jim & jim NextGen Marketing

    Vor acht Jahren war Instagram gerade geboren, Snapchat existierte noch nicht und Content Marketing war nicht viel mehr als ein „Buzzword“.
    Influencers wurden noch Testimonials genannt und das Konzept des „Besitzes“ war noch komplett in Takt. Und dann ging die Entwicklung plötzlich schnell
    und veränderte das Marketing (gerade zur jungen Zielgruppe) drastisch.

    Kurt Frenier (Vice President GM portfolio transformation PepsiCo Beverages) sagt dazu:
    “It’s an involvement culture, they (NextGen) do not want to be bombarded with products and offers, they want to be involved and be part of the creation.”

    Ist Ihr Brand bereit für diese anspruchsvolle Zielgruppe?
