Brands can no longer simply be a product or service that is offered in a store. They must shape the entire way people engage, shop, and buy. Brand experiences are not solely comprised of a website, an app, delivery options, the service you receive in-store, or the retail space itself. It’s all these things, designed as one seamless, frictionless experience. Successful brand experiences connect people, are driven by purpose and are led by the consumer. At the Conclave, discussions will revolve around creating meaningful relationships and experiences between brands and a generation governed by instant gratification.
