1:00 - 1:45 PM — Case Study Presentation from Registria - Powerful Mobile Moments that Transform Your Customer’s Journey

Speaker - Chris McDonald, CEO, Registria

With smart technology advancements like IoT and chat bots becoming more and more a part of the digital and mobile conversation, it's important brands recognize that using more technology in the customer journey does not necessarily lead to better and more meaningful interactions. We need to remember that our customers are human, and at the end of the day, they appreciate human experiences—especially when it comes to the customer experience.

Today, using the latest technology the right way allows brands to move from simply “managing” customer relationships to connecting with them, and ultimately, creating high-impact moments for your customers. Chris McDonald, CEO of Registria, will share case studies from global brands like Electrolux, Whirlpool, and Sony who have transformed their customer’s journey to build powerful mobile moments that drive increased loyalty, satisfaction, and ultimately - more sales.

1:45 - 2:45 PM — Roundtable Discussion on Industry Challenges
2:45 - 3:00 PM — Networking Break
3:00 - 4:00 PM — Keynote with Q&A — Cuisinart: Bridging the Physical with Digital and Mobile to Connect with Your Customers

Speaker - Mary M. Rodgers, Director of Marketing Communications, Cuisinart

As consumer behavior continues to evolve, companies that leverage data and insights to understand consumer preferences will be the most successful. This session will show how Cuisinart’s sophisticated use of analytics with digital, mobile, and social tactics has led to dramatic improvements in consumer connections in traditional and digital channels, both in-store and online.
Mary Rodgers of Cuisinart will discuss how technology is impacting the role of the CMO and how to succeed in a decentralized organization. Attendees will learn how Cuisinart’s evolved strategy has enabled the company to:

  • make smarter choices possible and improve efficiency

What attendees are saying:

  • “What I took away from our local DMA event was that no matter how different in size and scope one company is from the other, we all are aiming for the same thing: how to make our product better. Being able to brainstorm and relate to fellow marketers on an actual level is very important to what I do because it can be directly applied back to my job and help me with my day-to-day functions.”
    Jeff Eldersveld, Director of CRM and Analytics, Columbus Blue Jackets

    “The February Atlanta DMA event had a very enthusiastic audience. The topic of inspiring and engaging your customers continues to be one of the most important discussions for marketing leaders and strategies continue to evolve.”
