Why it’s time to get serious about “Shopper Marketing”

Disruption and opportunity are today’s paradigms in retail marketing.

In Australia, and around the globe, marketing is going through disruptive and transformative times. Led by rapid advancements in technology, powerful forces are challenging the retail status quo. Disinter-mediatory forces, amplified by a flat and borderless world, are changing the retail supply chain and the way marketers connect with their consumers, and vice versa.

As shopping behaviors evolve and new digital and mobile technologies emerge there is an exciting opportunity to close the gap between consideration and purchase. But are we ready?

Our panel of experts will share their insights and intelligence on what it will take to win with the always-on shopper and why they think we are falling short.

The IAA invites you to hear how they are making the online and offline shopping experience work for their companies’ brands, products and services.

Moderated by Paul Greenberg – CEO of the National Online Retailers Association (NORA) and co-founder of the DealsDirect Group, a pioneer in online retail.

Panel Speakers:
John Broome – Marketing Director, Kelloggs ANZ
Steve Brennen – Director of Marketing & Advertising Sales, eBay Australia & NZ
John Winning – Chief Executive Officer, Winning Group
Linda Barrett – Chief Marketing & Merchandise Officer, DealsDirect
Ian Cassidy – Managing Partner, The Station Agency
