2019 ANA Masters of Marketing Week

Join a who's who of CMOs and other industry movers and shakers who will share their remarkable stories of mastering brands and driving results in ways that didn't even seem possible a few years ago. As one past attendee noted, "This is unquestionably the biggest and best gathering of senior marketers in the country, and it's a great opportunity to confirm and learn about the latest trends and recent best practices." By any measure, ANA Masters of Marketing Week is the industry's premier annual event, attracting more than 3,000 attendees.

In addition to the general session stage, we are bringing back the Masters Second Stage, which is now bigger and better than last year's space. This enlightening forum is perfect for learning what's new, what's next, and what matters. At these thought-provoking sessions, you will hear from a range of best-in-class speakers, from companies including Chobani, MediaLink, Ford, and The Hershey Co.


 

"Today's most valuable brands have moved from comfort, peace, and belonging to experience. As marketers, this is something we cannot underestimate as we look to build brands that will win in today's economy."

 

- Alicia Tillman, CMO at SAP
Featured speaker at the 2019 ANA Masters of Marketing Week


You will walk away from each presentation feeling more informed and inspired about using traditional and digital marketing tools, evolving technologies, content, and data to reach target audiences and grow market share.

Session 1 – IT'S ABOUT TIME

Connecting with the consumer has never been more challenging for modern brands. Consumers are faced with endless content options and choices in media and entertainment, which means that the new currency of engagement is our time and attention. In this session, you will hear original consumer research on the drivers and motivators for how people tune in to content and platforms, their sentiment on advertising, and how brands and marketers can tap into new consumption patterns – like binge watching – to make their message stand out.

Session 2 - PART 1 – NEW MARKETING REALITIES: THE INTERSECTION OF TECHNOLOGY AND CULTURE

The 2019 AEF Symposium will focus on an exciting inflection point in marketing and advertising – the intersection of technology and culture. Advertising has entered new frontiers in creativity and commercial consumption as new technology is enabling new means to communicate and connect with consumers. Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Data Driven 1:1 Messaging, and Machine Learning are extending new ways to deliver deeper brand engagements with audiences. We are past the point of tech being a novelty or the primary focus. Now tech is enabling seamless cultural participation.

Agencies and marketers are experimenting with new forms of communication, new levels of disruption, new strategic partners, and new media that go well beyond TV, radio, print, digital and social media. The Symposium will explore what’s new and what’s next to extend culture cues to brand transformation. Attendees will emerge from the session with new methods, ideas and best practices they can adopt and adapt to distinguish their brands in this new world of marketing.

THE REAWAKENING OF CHIPOTLE

Since its founding in 1993, Chipotle had essentially created the “fast casual” restaurant category by serving responsibly sourced, classically cooked, real food without artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. However, around 2015, the brand began to lose its relevance and allowed others to usurp its leadership position in fast casual. In 2018, Chipotle set out to be more visible, more distinctive, and more culturally relevant. In this session, learn how Chipotle’s new marketing team is driving its new mission: to reinvigorate sales, celebrate what is special about Chipotle, be more innovative, and elevate the company into a purpose-driven lifestyle brand.

THINKING SMALL ISN’T SMALL AT ALL

After 20 years of aggressive price promotion and inconsistent messaging, one-time market leader Pearle Vision found itself struggling in the highly competitive optical retail landscape.

BUILT TO SUCK

According to master provocateur Joseph Jaffe, the corporate era is rapidly coming to an end. The biggest reason? The central operating system that powers the corporation, namely size, will be its downfall. Size is no longer a growth enabler; it’s a growth inhibitor. To respond, corporations must figure out how to “embrace their heresy” and deliver on four key pillars: Digital Disruption, Talent Resurrection, Customer Obsession, and Corporate Citizenship. Is there hope for the corporation? Can brands be saved? Where does marketing fit into all of this? Mr. Jaffe has the answers.

WOW, NO COW: BRINGING OATLY TO THE U.S.

At the beginning of 2018, very few people in the U.S. had ever heard of oatmilk or really thought about putting those two words together to describe something to put in their coffee or pour on their cereal. Fast forward to the fall of 2018, when the international press encouraged its readers to #PrayForBrooklyn in response to an article depicting oatmilk demand far outstripping supply and the impact it had on the people of Brooklyn. In this session, learn how the Swedish oatmilk brand made its way from early ’90s university research to irreverent sustainable food cult (the post-milk generation) to U.S. third-wave coffee standard, bucking best practices, norms, and market research along the way. Hear about the challenges of and solutions for the “Great Oatmilk Shortage of 2018” and what’s next for Oatly in the U.S.
