Keynote: The Infinite Funnel: Untangling the Messy Web of Modern Consumer Journeys with Seth van der Swaagh, Google

Room: Concorde Ballrooms B&C
Rapid increases in technology and access to information have made consumers more curious, demanding, and impatient than ever. And boy what a mess this has made for marketers. Shopping and purchase behavior used to follow a neat and predictable linear flow. But now consumers move along a seemingly infinite array of purchase paths, resembling more a tangled web than any traditional marketing funnel. This change has been rapid, and is only becoming more complex. We'll talk about what this means for lead gen marketing and how savvy marketers can ensure they continue to connect with consumers in all the moments that matter.

Keynote: Missed Audience, Missed Opportunities: Engaging Disabled Consumers

Room: Concorde Ballrooms B&C
Sponsored by Accessibility Shield - More than one billion consumers are living with a disability—nearly one in five in the U.S. alone. It’s a staggering figure, encompassing an audience with tremendous spending power that not only buys differently but also interacts with marketing differently—a fact that has emerged as a much more significant legal concern for brands. Come learn about one of the biggest consumer segments marketers aren’t engaging with as we’re joined by Mandy Harvey, America’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer Winner and global disability advocate. Hearing impaired since college, Mandy will share her own heartfelt story as she illustrates the challenges faced by those who cannot consume content the same way so many others do. She’ll open your eyes to the audience, the nuances of connecting with it, and to Accessibility Shield, whose mission is to make digital content accessible for all. Get inspired to refocus marketing on this missed market. Mandy will be joined by Jason McKee from Accessibility Shield and Kenneth Kinney from Ai Media Group and "A Shark's Perspective" - Podcast.
