Advancing NBC’s Olympic Marketing Approach

While most Americans have grown up watching the Olympics, with the current fragmented media landscape and growing demand for personalization, the opportunity was ripe to reconsider our historical approach to promoting one of the world's largest sporting events, and engaging consumers in new ways to further their connection to this sports tradition.  

In this session, we will discuss how consumer insights set the foundation to transform our consumer engagement strategy for the planning and promotion of the 2018 Winter Olympics, and future Olympic games. We will examine the role data played in achieving scaled segmentation, and supporting an agile content engine to drive relevance by recognizing the differentiated values and behaviors of today's dynamic consumer.

Pushing the Data Envelope & the Quest to Know Everyone on Earth

In this session, we will talk about how data is now a driving force in determining what marketing is used in both the digital and brand sides of marketing. We’ll talk through some tests that we've done, but more interestingly where data is promising and where it falls short. We’ll also touch on personalization (the Quest to Know Everyone on Earth), where it is, and where it's going.
