Have you taken your mobile from campaigns to strategy?

What past attendees are saying about the Mobilenomics Summit:

“I love being anywhere that has smart people having smart discussions, and I think this is a really good example of that. The people here are at the height of their industry and they’re having conversations that are going to shape the future of our business.”

      Jesse Wolfersberger, Director, Consumer Insights at GroupM Next

“Mobilenomics is unlike any other conference I’ve attended. This conference does a phenomenal job of getting great presenters who are on the leading edge of mobile work and present unfiltered content which provides great fodder for discussion and learning. The format is also really unique in that it offers a nice blend of presentation and interactive breakout sessions allowing attendees to hear from others in the room, not just those on stage. This is a must-attend event.”

      Angela Steele, CEO | Global Managing Director of Mobile at Ansible Mobile

“The opportunity to help shape a new forum where really bright people who are doing really interesting things can come together and share in an environment that puts joint value on the content and the networking I think was terrific. The track record speaks for itself. The facilities here, the support, the content was really terrific.”

      Tom Daly, Group Director, Global Connections at The Coca-Cola Company

BRAND AND AGENCY ONLY CLOSED DOOR MEETING: Before We Talk Marketing, Let’s Talk People

4:00 pm - 4:20 pm

VR, Innovation You Can Apply Today

How can marketers use virtual reality to create deeper connections with consumers, and provide them with experiences they'll never forget (and continue to evangelize)? What are the best practices and strategies for incorporating this new technology and making sure that the end result is both innovative and useful?

Friends With Holograms founder Cortney Harding will walk you the ins and out of creating great VR content, from coming with strategy and creative to finding the right partners.

4:20 pm - 4:40 pm

Practical Innovation for a Disruptive Future

How do you build a practical innovation strategy today when technologies like autonomous cars, robotics, and AI are right around the corner? Should those things play into your strategy or are they too far off to be meaningful? That's a challenge brands must solve to stay on top of their game today and stay relevant in the very near future.

Ben Gaddis will share an approach to innovation that helps marketers determine where and what they should focus on, identify the "constants" that keep brands from achieving innovation, and showcase case studies from brands who are on the right track.

4:40 pm - 5:50 pm

Group Wide Discussion: Applying Forward Thinking to Your Brands

Innovation is our end goal, but how do we get our teams (not to mention the C Suite) to this destination.

Fireside Chat: A Sports Drink That is a Lot More Than A Sports Drink

Gatorade has its challenges. Like most CPGs, it does not own most of its touch points with customers: retailers own the environment where the product resides, they also own the transaction (data!), and media companies own the space where most of Gatorade¹s messaging is seen. But this savvy brand is taking control of its destiny by evolving past pure product and into a services company that supports the active lifestyle of its target customer. Through developing low cost apps that train athletes and co-branded content Gatorade is balancing the challenges of customer data with real time messaging and culture. Oh yeah, and they have a roster of star athletes to boot. Find out how Gatorade¹s Head of Digital is driving data, creative, and innovation in this candid discussion.

11:00 am - 11:20 am

Technology, Mobility, And The Law: The Complexities Of Privacy And Data Security Compliance

We will explore the regulatory landscape, outline the FTC’s hot button issues, share insights on enforcement trends and provide best practices drawn from recently closed investigations. In this session, we will cover:

• Mobile Privacy/ Data Security
• Big Data
• Behavioral Advertising/Tracking
• Cross Device Tracking
• The Internet of Things

11:20 am - 11:40 am

Why Creativity Matters in the Mobile Age

Mobile is challenging everything we know about telling stories. Nothing on mobile is passive, with just a scroll of a thumb it is easy to open up any app and get access to content on demand. This behavior shift is setting a new bar for what it means to capture people’s attention creating a sense of urgency for marketers to understand the opportunities and challenges of the medium. Join Jesse Goranson as he shares global research that explores how these consumer behaviors are breaking conventional rules for storytelling through advertising.

11:40 am - 12:00 pm

A Brand’s Sanity Check On Moving To 1:1 Marketing

Increasingly, smart marketers strive to learn as much as they can about their customers. It is accepted the wisdom that the more data you have, the better you can market. But is there such a thing as too much data? What are the perils of collecting and using data to market to consumers? These and other provocative questions will have you question what you think you know about data-driven marketing.

12:00 pm - 12:15 pm

Why Identity Lies At The Heart Of The Cross Platform Measurement Problem

In this session Duncan will present the case for realistic cross-platform measurement - and what can be done in the interim while we wait for true measurement tools to catch up. Panels alone are not the answer; ultimately we need to work together as an industry. (Like Fox-Turner-Viacom have recently shown us is possible) and not rely on a single vendor to provide the answer.

Duncan will demonstrate key methods of evaluating the value of mobile video, as well as a path forward for the industry. Part of that path: consumers are willing to share data if their privacy is protected, so, as an industry our identifying and anonymizing of the consumer is the golden ticket to measurement.

12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


Closed door presentations from major mobile partners, publishers, and cross-platform technology providers exclusive to brand and agency attendees. Hear case studies, exclusive research, and early industry announcements, and get a look at the latest mobile approaches by today’s leading media companies. (Mandatory for brand and agency attendees)

In this Roundtable discussion, we’ll discuss how you fit the pieces together, common barriers (and how to avoid them), as well as a hint of questioning whether a single customer view is even the right solution for your brand.

2:10 pm - 3:30 pm

Roundtable B: Balancing Creativity, Scale And Behavior To Connect With The Mobile Consumer

With a myriad of ways to connect with the mobile user, it is important to prioritize what strategies will best resonate with your target audience.

Nestle and the Reach Agency are Mobilenomics poster children. They are adding insights to data while developing compelling content and creative across a variety of screens and formats in the process. Along the way they are answering important questions, like, how to move content from TV to mobile and mobile to TV. Nestle is also questioning more and more of established thinking as platforms continue to evolve. For example, is there a place for long format video with millennials? Is video always the answer? Are GIFs better? In this fireside chat, our co-hosts will sit down with Raakhi & Karen to discuss these learnings, as well as how to capture attention in a feed based environment, the role of social creators, and more!

10:05 am - 10:25 am

Mobile Marketing and the Authentic Brand Story: Trolli Beardsketball, featuring NBA superstar James Harden

Periscope and Trolli launched a one-of-a-kind brand engagement experience featuring some really cool and innovative interactive technology that brings NBA superstar James Harden to the masses in a way that has never been done before with a celebrity influencer. This is also one of the very first brand campaigns to leverage Snapchat Spectacles!

Staying true to Trolli's Weirdly Awesome brand message, Beardsketball made its debut to much fanfare and media-buzz at the Houston Rockets vs. Golden State Warriors game. This quick highlight reel shows how Periscope's creative (including a super life-like beard net) came to life:
And through innovation, technology and mobile, the experience was as real at home as it was for those playing the game in person

This activation isn't just about really cool creative coming to life across all channels... It is a part of a bigger success story in that it proves how mobile marketing can be leveraged as a part of campaign strategy to tell an authentic brand story. Trolli has been such a leader in storytelling via Snapchat, that Snap Inc has referenced Trolli in its own "Success Stories" and also it's recent IPO filing.

In this session, Periscope will talk about how mobile has been a critical factor in reaching its key demographic - Gen Z - and become a central piece of the overall creative strategy. There will also be great storytelling on how brands can find and leverage a celebrity influencer (and social influencers in general) that is an authentic fit, which will fuel wild success especially for those companies targeting millenials and Gen Z.

10:25 am - 10:45 am

The Future of Mobile Advertising: Using Emerging Technology to its Fullest

Annual advertising spend on mobile video is expected to grow between 30% and 40% every year for the next several years, as mobile technology continues to rampantly develop and enrich the user experience. Smartphones now have advanced features that understand the context of a consumer and their environment. This has created the opportunity for advanced tech integrations within advertising that seamlessly weave interaction and individualization into ad creative. MAGNA has run several different studies over the past year that explore the burgeoning world of mobile advertising from different angles, so we put together a guide for how to best utilize the available mobile software and hardware capabilities from a compilation of our top research studies.

As the video ad world has changed with the advent of new video platforms changing typical video viewing behavior and social media shaking up traditional ad paradigms, we investigate skippable pre-roll ads and in-feed, auto-play videos, learning more about skipping behaviors, the effects of viewability, and what advertisers can do to maximize the impact of their campaigns. In addition to emerging mobile platforms, we also have the ability to capitalize on unique hardware supported by mobile devices. From this perspective, we look at how, when, and why to implement haptic feedback in ads – incorporating a third sense into the ad experience with touch, as well as how to use location data to individualize user experience. All of this culminates into a comprehensive guide about how to introduce intentional design into your ad strategies based on the medium, capitalizing on its unique properties and enhancing the effectiveness of your mobile ad campaign.

Welcome to the Fourth Industrial Revolution

As we approach the 10th anniversary of the launch of the original iPhone, it is clear that while mobile has disrupted nearly everything, we’re just getting started. What happens at the intersection of mobility, artificial intelligence, conversational interfaces, IoT, and more? How should brands be thinking about innovation in this new complex environment? How do we separate the parlor tricks from the paradigm shifts? Jeremy Lockhorn, mobile lead at SapientRazorfish, shares his point of view on where we (as an industry) have been in mobile - and where brands need to go next.

2:00 pm - 2:20 pm

Dial “0”

There is a powerful paradigm shift happening today and for the foreseeable future towards conversational interfaces.

Scott Smith will share how Moxie believes brands should be approaching chatbots and the usage of Artificial Intelligence carefully and with the proper fundamentals.
