Reuters Events are making waves in the virtual events space with their newest board level meeting uniting the world’s most influential CMOs to set benchmarks, showcase innovation, and map the future of marketing. With a huge focus on interactivity, this meeting is set to be a 2020 must-attend.

Reuters Events have launched Strategic Marketing USA (Nov 5-6, Online & On-Demand), another edition to their strategic series of board level meetings. Rather than discussing the how to’s of marketing, this is the meeting place of the world’s most influential CMOs where news will break, benchmarks will be set, and the marketing leaders attending will pioneer the way forward.

“We are amidst the most dramatic shift in consumer expectations in a lifetime. The entire fabric of our lives has changed and, in turn, so too has the way we want to interact with brands. Marketing must change to align with this shift, now.” – Jasmine Kees, Strategic Director, Reuters Events.

Four essential themes for 2020:

  • CMO Strategy & Trends: CMOs share their plans for keeping brand relevancy in an ever-changing world, honing brand purpose, reinventing a legacy, and creating a culture of innovation.
  • Customer Insights & Understanding New Consumer Behavior: Customer needs, wants and expectations have changed. It’s time to fully understand your customer and their journey to unlock data-driven personalized experiences.
  • Agile Content & Creative: Cut through the noise with impactful interactions that inspire and create a lasting connection. Use this shared global experience to connect on an emotional level, telling stories that are hyper relevant, but grounded in brand.
  • Digital, Social & Influencers: As we follow social-distancing guidelines, the channel of choice for many is social and influencers are at their most impactful. Video, influencers and the formula for social success.

“Thinking it terms of functional boundaries – where marketing produces “traffic” and product drives “conversion” and customer service “saves” the experience, is very much outdated. The role of the CMO, or a chief growth officer, is to do everything it takes to drive the growth of the business – be it through advertising, PR, product, or customer service. We need to stop being functional specialists, often speaking about the brand most of the time, and become true business leaders, who are able to use a wide toolbox of functional expertise to grow the business.” - Alex Weinstein, Senior Vice President, Growth, Grubhub

CMOs and marketing leaders shaping the future of marketing weigh in as speakers, including:

  • Penny Baldwin, CMO, Qualcomm
  • Ira Rubenstein, CMO, PBS
  • Evan Jones, CMO, Fender
  • Leela Srinivasan, CMO, SurveyMonkey
  • Kevin Peck, SVP, Global Branding, AT&T

“Brilliant brands, brilliant missions, and brilliant minds all in one place to share, listen, and learn from – it’s a collaborative, crowdsourced economy” – Alison Herzog, Director, Global Social Business & Digital Strategy, Dell
