The Future of Luxury & Successful Digital Marketing Strategies
Given that today’s “connected consumers” are continuously online, digital marketing is the starting point for brands wishing to reach new customers. But as these customers shift their attention to social media to connect with friends, share their experiences, and engage with brands, competing for their attention is becoming increasingly difficult. Analyzing the rich social conversations of these customers reveals a deeper understanding of your prospective customers to help your digital marketing efforts better achieve the three primary business objectives—acquire more customers, retain current customers and build brand value.
In this session, Nicole Seredenko, Associate of Consulting Services at NetBase Quid will share how luxury brands achieve this with examples from Chanel, Dior, and Balenciaga.
Join us to learn the importance of consumer and market analytics to:
- Plan campaign strategies
- Leverage audience insights
- Inform creative and placement strategies
- Increase reach and engagement
- Optimize campaigns in real-time

A massive shift in how organizations approach work has settled and led to a host of challenges. Now the role of how you impact the success of your team is even more important when it comes to overseeing a remote team.
You’ll be required to adapt to new ways of leading – considering different areas and various regions across a single country that encompass different work cultures and expectations. In addition, remote teams will also be able to take advantage of an array of benefits including flexibility and the opportunity to bring together top talent for the job (regardless of their location).
In this presentation, Olga Andrienko brings clarity to leading and scaling remote-based marketing teams with steps to produce outstanding results for your brand.

How (and Why!) to Supercharge your Most Important Digital Marketing Channel
The world of digital marketing is constantly evolving. And while today’s marketing leaders are quick to embrace the next, new technology, “tried and true” channels like email are too often left on the back burner – despite the fact that email marketing still yields a 36:1 ROI.
While email may be a tried-and-true channel, it too is always changing. As the end of the year approaches, email volumes double, deliverability gets harder and competition in the inbox soars – marketers have their work cut out for them.
Join this session with Guy Hanson, VP of Customer engagement, to learn the steps you can take to supercharge your email program, drive more conversions and plan for success heading into Q4.
- The current email marketing and deliverability landscape
- Strategies to improve your deliverability during the Q4 peak season
- Tactics to make your emails stand out in gridlocked inboxes (and get them opened!)
- How to “Supercharge” your click-throughs to maximize website traffic and conversions
Vice President, Customer Engagement (International), Validity Inc.

- How live event engagement compares to engagement across your marketing mix
- How you can construct an event strategy that drives deep engagement from all your events –in-person, virtual, hybrid, and webinars
- How you can capture those insights for immediate proof of impact

Re-Centering the “person” in the age of personalization: Tips to humanize and better engage your customer
As busy marketers, we typically learn everything about our customers from behind our screens. But the truth is, our personalization strategy is only as good as our deepest understanding of the customer.
This session provides actionable tips for marketers to become the internal experts on their customers, and build personalization from a place of true understanding, not just numbers on spreadsheets.
Senior Strategic Value Advisor, Adobe
Building Engagement in an Impersonal World
Marketers are fighting harder than ever to acquire new customers and engage the ones they have. But establishing relationships and personalizing marketing is becoming increasingly complex. Customers expect brands to understand their needs and are more aware of how their data is used. Targeting and personalization are under threat as data privacy concerns take center stage. And with budgets having to keep up with ever-growing media spends, marketers need to do so much more with less.
In this session, we will explore how marketers need to pivot towards being more authentic and how utilizing every channel you own in a coordinated way can support both demand generation and building long-term relationships.
We will discuss:
• A strategy to write your B2B success story
• The opportunity of leveraging your email as a promotional channel
• Why we feel the best kept marketing secret is engagement
