NETWORKING BREAKFAST (9:00 – 9:45AM)
INTRODUCTIONS & 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.  In this session, 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.  

I. HOT WHEELS: KEEPING A 50 YEAR OLD BRAND RELEVANT AND COOL WITH SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT AND INFLUENCERS (10:00 – 10:45AM)
In 1968, Hot Wheels revolutionized play with the first toy cars that not only looked great but also performed better than anything else out in the market. 50 years and many generations later, the brand is bigger than ever. With continuously changing trends and consumer behaviors, and a fast evolving media environment, it's more challenging than ever for a heritage brand to remain relevant and top of mind. A unique approach to engaging and building partnerships with creators have driven significant growth for Hot Wheels on YouTube and made the brand cool among the cool kids. In this session, Mattel will share insights on this campaign.
