Event Overview

New, perpetually connected customers provide endless marketing opportunities, but when every moment is an addressable medium, how do you target the right moments to build relevance? How do you avoid the backlash from people who feel bombarded by your messaging? And how do you pick the right emerging technologies and marketing skills to build relevance with customers at exactly the right point in time? Get them wrong, and you will watch your competitors steal your share. At Forrester's Forum For Marketing Leaders 2013, we will unveil how to get these things right and drive enduring brand advantage with today's perpetually connected customers.


Forrester will help you prioritize:

  • Media planning and optimization techniques for creating relevance and brand preference.
  • Targeting strategies to engage your customers across all types of addressable media.
  • Tips to avoid a privacy backlash.


New Research To Be Launched

At this year's Forum For Marketing Leaders, Forrester will launch our newest big idea report. This report includes the Mobile Mind Shift Index, which measures the level of connectivity across different customer segments and the speed with which they're moving toward perpetual connectivity.
