II. REFINERY29: HOW TO WIN IN THE EXPERIENCE ECONOMY (11:00 – 11:50AM)
While brands have traditionally been content creators through traditional advertising, today they must also be cultural curators to help fuel conversations and build true brand affinity. With recent data revealing that 78% of millennials would rather spend money on experiences over products, brands are increasingly looking for ways to create narrative-driven, experiential moments that build more meaningful and emotional connections. In this session, Kelly Markus, vice president for experiential at Refinery29, will share learnings drawing on the brand's work building its wildly popular 29Rooms experience. Merging the themes of mission, risk-taking, and authenticity, she will discuss how experiential delivers returns for brand partners that can help them meet key business objectives, catapult growth opportunities, and identify new audiences—a win for everyone.

Speaker:
Kelly Markus, VP, Experiential – Refinery29
