Spring 2019 Trustees Meeting: Right Channel, Right Content, Right Time

Overview

The proliferation of channels creates both challenges and opportunities to reach customers with the right message at the right time. Please join us for our Spring 2019 Trustees Meeting where B2B and B2C marketing leaders and academic experts will address these and related questions.

  • How can you facilitate search and create seamless experiences across multiple channels?
  • How do consumers form platform and channel preferences?
  • Which promotions best align with which channels?
  • What types of data and analytics are needed to personalize, target and time messages? How can (should) manufacturers and retailers cooperate in these efforts?
  • How can causal models improve attribution and determine the effectiveness of different channels and content?
  • What are the roles of marketing and technology in salesforce enablement?

MSI’s semi-annual Board of Trustees meetings are a unique benefit of MSI membership. For many Trustees, these are “must-attend” events—a welcome opportunity to recharge, connect with marketing peers, and take in new ideas and marketing insights. Board of Trustees meetings are developed around broad themes that are relevant across industries and company roles. MSI Board of Trustees meetings are “sales free” events where top marketers and academic experts share their knowledge, experience, and insights, and attendees benefit from a rich learning and networking experience. Trustees meetings are open only to Trustees from MSI member companies or their designates. You must be logged in to register.
