Brand Innovation: What do The Next Five Years Hold?

In this high-energy, high innovation session, in-demand speaker Christina “CK” Kerley will show how digital, social, and mobile media have set the foundation for the biggest changes that marketers will experience within their lifetimes. Over the next five years, emerging technologies are setting ablaze computing’s next wave of wearable devices, igniting sensor networks that connect the physical world by transforming inanimate objects into intelligent systems, and producing big-data solutions that enable truly personalized, context-rich experiences for consumer and enterprise audiences.

Through this segment, CK will illuminate how these powerful technologies will yield unprecedented—once unimaginable—opportunities for your brands as we embark on the most innovation-rich era in all of human history.

NO STANDING STILL: INNOVATING TO ATTRACT NEW CONSUMERS AND EXPAND OCCASIONS

In the last 20 years, beer has been losing share to spirits and wine.  More recently, the craft beer segment is driving new excitement and interest to the category by offering a broad range of new styles and flavors.  HEINEKEN USA has a strong portfolio of leading, upscale beer brands and continues to have best in class marketing and advertising, such as Dos Equis’ Most Interesting Man and Heineken’s James Bond campaigns.  They also have an exciting opportunity to expand their current beer portfolio and bring new consumers into the category.  Standing still is falling behind in today’s environment.  This drives the need for innovation aimed at attracting new consumers and expanding the portfolio into new occasions.

TAKING THE “LESS IS MORE” APPROACH TO A NEW LEVEL

When the New York Football Giants and New York Jets decided to partner and privately fund a new $1.6 billion stadium in the Meadowlands, a revolutionary sponsorship model was developed to create the cleanest, clutter-free stadium in sports and take the fan experience to a new level.  By establishing five permanent partners, these national brands truly became integrated into the DNA of the stadium, as part of the architectural design as well as developing an activation strategy to deliver a best in class guest experience.   We’ll hear about the ingredient used towards building these unique, mega-relationships and the successful outcome in the stadium’s first four years.
