Where to Next with Experiential Marketing: A Year-Long Journey

Once the fastest growing brand activation discipline, Experiential Marketing has been upended by the advent of Covid-19. Many marketers shifted their strategies in the immediate and short term but as vaccination rates are rising and infection rates dropping, what are brands doing next? What is the next step on this return to “normal.”

Building on the success of our April panel, we’ve created a year-long series; each quarter, we will feature the biggest brands and the brightest minds as they share their thoughts on the future of the industry and share some highlights of their plans over a tumultuous year-long period.

Ronnie unveiled Bud Light’s Dive Bar Sessions, where she created a space to showcase over 50 emerging artists across SXSW, Lolla, Panorama and more. As Head of Experiential for Michelob ULTRA, Ronnie was behind the first-ever sunset mass meditation for over 2,000 people at SXSW with The Big Quiet and Grammy-nominated Miguel and the evolution of the successful ULTRA Movement events that continue to evolve in the current environment. In her current role as Head of Experiential for all of AB, Ronnie brings her deep love of consumer-centered experiences and strategy to help define the future of what experiential marketing should be, ensuring AB will lead the way, as evident in the programs and work executed in the midst of a pandemic when the team shifted their real-life events to some of the most-watched livestreams like Bud Light Seltzer Sessions Presents NYE with Post Malone as headliner.
