NETWORKING BREAKFAST (9:00AM – 9:30AM ET)
INTRODUCTIONS (9:30AM – 9:45AM)

Session 1: Re-thinking in Store Experiences (even if you don’t sell at a store!)  (9:45AM - 10:30AM)  When many think of in-store experience they consider in store sampling as a trial driver only. What if that was only part of the story? The impact of in-store sampling goes well beyond same-day trial and sales. These experiences also influence future purchase decisions. In-store sampling drives newly converted shoppers to repeat purchase, setting the stage for brand loyalty. Our recent analysis shows that 87% of product dollars on sampling day were from shoppers new to the product AND these shoppers had a 78% re-purchase rate within the next 12-months! These learnings can be applied across industries, channels and verticals.

Speaker: Brad Hajart, General Manager Brand Connections

II. Session 2: Conversational Commerce and Omnichannel Conversion (10:30AM - 11:15AM)

Hear from Butterfinger and their agency Brandshare as they showcase how they leveraged conversational commerce with add-to-cart technology as part of a targeted e-commerce sampling campaign to accelerate purchase conversion for their reformulation campaign. Brandshare will also highlight how other brands across various categories, including beverage, laundry and personal care, leveraged inside the box connected sampling campaigns to drive similar success.
