Panel: Experiencing The Connected Car

coffey2 Hoppe Bartkus2 Coffas
Twenty years ago, General Motors' OnStar heralded the introduction of the first connected car. It wasn't until 10 years later, with the introduction of the smartphone, that retailers gained access to the commuting consumer. Today, automotive technology is getting smarter and according to Gartner, by the year 2020, there will be 250 million connected cars. So as our consumer goes about their day, spending up to 50 minutes commuting, what is the best strategy for retailers to engage them? Is it through apps or partnerships with the OEM themselves? Learn from our panel of experts on how each of their companies are addressing this issue and how it might help you in your marketing efforts.

Closing Keynote - THE IMPACT OF MOBILE PRODIGIES: IN PURSUIT OF THE MOBILE MOMENT

Bernard
Capturing spend and earning a place for successful brand messaging requires insights into consumer location data and shopper histories as well as the ability to granularly target consumers with relevant and inspiring content. This is especially important when it comes to Millennials and Gen Z shoppers. Inspiring these younger shoppers with relevant experiences not only builds positive brand engagements but also, when a mobile creative experience hits the right marks, one in four said they would then be motivated to buy. And yet, brands are still struggling. Among advertisers in 'Pursuing the Mobile Moment', a June 2017 commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on our behalf, 38% of the polled brands cited difficulty contextualizing historical location insights about consumers and 37% said they have trouble targeting customers with granularity. In this session, we look at how and why these challenges emerge, and what it takes to identify the right third-party partners so that advertisers can tap into the spending power that Mobile Prodigies are already bringing to bear
