1. “Alexa, order Heineken”: How voice tech challenges brand and channel management

In this presentation we explore the potential of AI platforms, in particular Voice assistants, and share our latest global findings on Voice consumer behavior.

With the drivers to use Voice technology outweighing the barriers, it is just a matter of time before this AI platform will become mainstream. Like the consumers, brands and leading CPG companies are piloting and testing Voice; yet, they are facing increased pressure as the retailer role is getting stronger. With companies like Amazon, Alibaba, Baidu, and Google changing the rules, brand companies should follow suit or lose out.

Join this session and learn how brand and channel management can address these voice technology challenges to stay ahead.

3. Young ESOMAR Society award pitch: Uncovering how consumers learn

Analyst Kevin Benny, was named 1 of 5 global finalists in the Young ESOMAR Society award competition.  He’ll have 60 seconds on the main stage to share his take on Intelligence Marketing:

Market research functions to identify behavioral and cognitive trends within a population, and subsequently leverage them to generate purchase intent by educating consumers on a target product. Success, henceforth, necessarily depends on the cognitive abilities of the consumer to process and retain functional product information. By this logic, developing a dynamic framework that defines how consumers learn could radically enhance the field of market research.

Attend this session to learn more and root Kevin on!
