I. NBA INSPIRES AND CONNECTS WITH MULTICULTURAL MILLENNIALS (9:45-10:45AM)
We've all heard the buzzword – multicultural millennials – every major organization is trying to strategize new and exciting ways to reach this segment. They are the fastest growing population segment in America and the most diverse cohort in American history. Since 2006, the number of multicultural millennials in the US has grown 31%, which far outpaces the general 12+ year old population (+7%). Beyond the numbers, the NBA has made it their priority to understand and evolve with this dynamic consumer segment. Hear how they are creating strategies and allocating resources to help them identify, inspire, and connect and further deepen their roots with fans.

IV. ACHIEVING CULTURATIONAL CHEMISTRY WITH MILLENNIALS (1:20-2:20PM)
As millennials have come of age, many brands are seeking to better understand how to connect with them as consumers and as employees. This session explores the undeniable cultural and generational diversity that millennials bring in an effort to help strengthen those consumer and employee relationship dynamics. We will discuss the importance of understanding, appreciating and respecting the differences that exist between millennials and their generational counterparts and how to leverage the unique value of those differences. Additionally this session will explore the myths and realities that drive the cultural and generational gaps that exist and how to best bridge those gaps.
