Opening Keynote

Deloitte Digital: The New Digital Divide and the Age of Smartphone Commerce
As historically bricks-and-mortar retailers attempt to build their digital business, they continue to focus on, build and measure things that customers do not value, or more simply put, the wrong things. As a result, these retailers are steadily losing market share in sales, shopping and search. Consumers have not stopped going to stores, but digital has altered their behavior. This session will discuss:

• How consumers are researching more across all their devices and more so on their mobile devices

• How Holiday 2015 became a tipping point for commerce for consumers actually buying on their smartphones

• How it is not just about the Buy button


Paul do Forno, director for Deloitte digital customer experience and commerce, Deloitte Consulting LLP

Strategy Analytics: Mobile Advertising’s Role in the Larger Advertising Market
There is no doubt that mobile advertising is growing by leaps and bounds. In 2015, advertisers spent $19.1 billion on mobile ads in the United States and $44.3 billion globally, up nearly 37 percent and 40 percent, respectively year over year. By itself this sounds like quite an impressive feat, but mobile advertising does not operate in a vacuum. How does this compare to what advertisers are spending in digital overall? Or on desktops? And despite the sky-is-falling prognostications regarding television advertising, it continues to grow. So where is all this money that is expected to flow into mobile advertising going to come from? This session will examine where mobile advertising fits in the larger advertising market. Some of the key issues that will be addressed include:

• What is mobile’s share of digital advertising? Advertising overall?

• Which segments are growing fastest: search, display and video

• What is driving this growth?

• What impact are macro trends in digital advertising having on mobile advertising?


Michael Goodman, director of digital media strategies, Strategy Analytics

10:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.


10:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

GfK: Making Mobile Ad Targeting More Effective: Passive and Custom Research Joining Forces
To target more effectively in a mobile environment, marketers and advertisers need deeper information about consumers. Many targeting profiles currently are based simply on location. Understanding where people are, though, does not tell us who they are or why they are there. Digging deeper into consumers’ mobile use is a huge challenge, though. Mobile operating systems create ever-changing obstacles, and applications are walled gardens – rich in insights that app owners mostly keep to themselves. For advertisers and agency planners, a bigger insight and effectiveness payoff can come when passively collected data is supplemented by learnings from other sources – primarily custom surveys and syndicated databases. Here, traditional research modes and offerings find common ground and a shared purpose with the new “MR-free” world of passive data collection. Key topics include:

• How offline data can make mobile targeting more effective

• The market researcher’s new role as data integrator

• The key part research panels play in creating richer mobile data

• How passive and custom work together to illuminate purchase journeys

McCann Truth Central: Unearthing Gen Z: A New Species Changes the World Order
If millennials are their own breed of mobile consumer, the Snapchat-wielding Generation Z is surely a new species entirely. Those under the age of 20 are living in a complex, post-authentic world where “Finstagram” is the “real” Instagram, the notion of “live streaming all day” is a viable career option and mobile bullying is an everyday reality. Only the marketers most tapped into evolving youth mindsets will survive in this complicated new world. Attendees will learn:

• How are teens using mobile phones today and how that differs from millennials

• What do marketers need to know about new modes of expression and the emergent language of Gen Z?

• What are the new rules of engagement and how do brands engage in this new youth landscape?


India Wooldridge, senior vice president and director, McCann Truth Central

3:15 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.


3:30 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.

Luxury marketers have been relatively slow in embracing mobile solutions. Typically, luxury shoppers can search for and research what they wish to buy digitally, but actually buying what they want on mobile devices many times is not a pleasant experience from the consumer’s perspective. Takeaways from this presentation will include:

• Which luxury categories’ consumers are currently buying via mobile devices?

• What are the current obstacles to buying luxuries digitally through the eyes of the consumer?

• Why digital and mobile solutions are critical to luxury brands and retailers’ success in the future

• Which luxury marketers are currently innovating using mobile and digital to enhance the luxury shopper’s experience


Bob Shullman, Founder/CEO, The Shullman Research Center

Raffle for Dom Perignon

4:30 – 5:15 p.m.

Closing Keynote

Boston Retail Partners: Mobile and Retail: The Future is Now
Mobile technology has long been evangelized as the future of retail. From empowering both associates and consumers to easing and securing payment processing, mobile devices are believed to hold the answer for how shopping was always intended. But for too long, mobile technology has been considered more for its promise and less for its practical application. Data from the Boston Retail Partners 2016 POS/Customer Engagement Survey, along with real-world case studies, will show that mobility and retail are no longer far-off partners. This session will focus on:

• How mobile technology can be broken down into three main categories for retailers

• How mobile technology can help retailers ensure that employees are offering a consistent and informed message to their customers

• How personalization remains a key differentiator for retailers looking to drive more sales via mobile technology

• 2015 and the first half of 2016 have seen tremendous advances in the mobile payment processing space. If the future is now for mobile technology and retail, what is coming next?


Ryan Grogman, vice president, Boston Retail Partners

5:15 p.m. – 6 p.m.
