Conference Theme: What Happens in Marketing, Stays Digital: Rethinking Marketing for Success in the Era of Unlimited Data 

The profusion of digital channels and the challenges of digital brands have created numerous new strategic dilemmas for marketing academicians and for marketing practice and policymakers. And once the cost of deleting data exceeded the cost of storing it, marketing scientists found themselves endowed with more digital data than all the quarters in all the slot machines on The Strip. Further, digital capabilities have changed how we study consumer behavior, and digital services have changed the questions asked by CB scholars. With this digital ubiquity in mind, we need not include a "digital track" at Winter AMA, but rather expect that digital will be included in every track. Digital is dead. Long live digital. Welcome to 2016 Winter Marketing Educators' Conference, bringing marketing scholarship to address managerially relevant challenges in the digital age.​
