INTRODUCTIONS (9:30 – 9:45AM)
I. ARE YOU READY TO ROCK? THE ROCKSMITH MUSIC GAME EXPERIENCE (9:45-10:45AM)
In 2010, music video games in which users play along to rock songs using fake instruments went from selling millions of units to mere thousands. That same year, Ubisoft released "Rocksmith," a music game that lets you connect with any guitar and actually learn to play. "Rocksmith" faced the dual marketing challenge of introducing a new franchise and differentiating itself from the plastic instrument games. Attendees will learn how an innovative partnership with Epiphone/Gibson and Guitar Center helped "Rocksmith" find its audience and revive the genre.

IV. THE PURCHASE LOOP (1:30-2:30PM)
The traditional purchase funnel – conceived in 1898 – no longer reflects the dynamic process of brand engagement, consideration and purchase. New national research identifies the 6 consumer behaviors that define a loop-like model, along with purchase paths that vary significantly by category.
