Only the Brave Win
Courageous marketing is innovative marketing, and innovation today is happening across channels. In this session the panelists will discuss what it takes to create a successful, cohesive multichannel marketing campaign. From channel selection to creative elements, from QR codes to customer data, what are the considerations for blending traditional and digital while maintaining the consistency of branding and design across customer interaction points? How do you balance risk taking and results? Our panelists will explain how as they share stories of their multichannel marketing successes.
3:15PM – 4:00PM
Data vs. Creative
In the battle to create a winning marketing campaign two forces are often at odds: data and creativity.

In this panel discussion two design-led and two data-led marketers will debate data’s ideal role in the creative process.
