III. RETHINKING "DIGITAL" - WHAT'S NOW AND WHAT'S NEXT
(1:00-2:00PM)
Digital trends continue to evolve at breakneck speed, causing consumers to reevaluate the very definition of "digital." Social media platforms are growing both vertically and horizontally - fragmenting like so many other forms of entertainment and creating a growing need for real-time marketing. And to top it off, the "Internet of Things" is upon us, giving rise to products tailored to the "quantifiable self" while 3D printing threatens to completely remake how we we produce. In this session, Richard Goldsmith, Director, Social Media - R/GA Chicago and Jeff Canzona, Creative Director - R/GA Chicago for a overview on where we stand today and a preview of what's to come.

Speakers:
Richard Goldsmith, Director, Social Media - R/GA Chicago
Jeff Canzona, Creative Director - R/GA Chicago
