MarTech can be a cloudy subject. But this year, MarketingTech Smart is going to clear it up by breaking it down – into three key panel discussions. At the end of the day, you’ll walk away with a plan you can use every day.

Each of the unique panel conversations will focus on one facet of the customer experience:

  • Channel: Where is your customer searching?
  • Creative/Content: What content are you sharing with them?
  • Data & Analytic: What information do you know about them, and how can you optimize it?

Experts in each area will share their knowledge and provide insights into what’s now and what’s next, so you can walk away with the real information you need to build the plan that’s smartest for your organization and your customer.

Whether it’s getting a handle on the best channels to choose, leveraging data and analytics to get better insights, or figuring out what content works, MarketingTech Smart shares the tools, applications and upcoming innovations you need to know to get the business results you want.

Agenda and speakers are subject to change. Check back often for updates.
