NETWORKING BREAKFAST (9:00 – 9:45AM)
INTRODUCTIONS & NETWORKING "FIRESTARTER" SESSION (9:45 – 10:00AM)

One of the benefits of ANA Committees is the ability to share and learn from fellow marketers in a "closed door" environment and to leverage and share knowledge and insights with marketing peers. Often times, many marketers have similar challenges in areas like measurement, content marketing, digital advertising, social media best practices, walled gardens, working with influencers, programmatic, how to tap into new technologies like VR, AI, and AR, agency management, etc. During introductions, we will ask members to share 1-2 "hot topics" or key areas of focus/challenge in the digital & social space as a way to facilitate more one-to-one networking between members with similar challenges during coffee breaks and lunch.

III. WHAT EVERY MARKETER NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT VOICE (12:30 – 1:15PM)
Voice has been a largely uncharted territory for marketers. In fact, 69% of marketers believe Voice is not the "next big thing". But our industry has a tendency to confuse revolution for evolution. So there is no confusion: Voice will be a revolution, and marketers need to be ready to navigate it. Hear from the experts at advertising agency 360i, as they share key learnings from their past year spent exploring the Voice landscape, building Voice skills and exploring its potential for disruption. Gleaning from 360i's recently published Voice Playbook, this session will equip marketers with actionable advice and tangible next steps for capitalizing on opportunities in Voice.
