COFFEE BREAK (2:25PM – 2:35PM)

III. Session 3: Brand Experiences As A Powerful Source Of Content  (2:35PM – 3:15PM)
Experiences are the new currency. In a world where people prefer to make memories over buying goods, it’s all about access, not ownership. And people are willing to spend. Seventy five percent of millennials would choose to spend money on an experience rather than buying something desirable (source). From secret pop-up parties, to temporary instagrammable museums, these massclusive events allow people to collect and flaunt experiences, not things. For brands looking to generate earned content, there’s never been a better time to fuel the crowd’s need for social currency
