April 21st from 8:00AM - 10:30AM - Eat, Greet, and learn with your fellow executives
Google Headquarters, New York
The consumer's buyer's journey has gone digital.
According to Deloitte, $0.56 of every dollar spent in a store is influenced by a digital interaction.1 Meanwhile, 88% of consumers say that it is product content - feature bullets, images, ratings and reviews - that drive their purchase decision.2 And with the primary growth in retail coming from online sales, the mandate is clear: driving accurate, complete, differentiated product content to market is a competitive must for every brand manufacturer. Is your organization on board?
On April 21st, join us at Google HQ in Manhattan for a morning of expert discussion around how brand manufacturers are prioritizing product content and working with retailers to create great digital experiences and drive sales. Leaders from Google and Johnson & Johnson will share their best practices from the front lines of the battle to deliver the content consumers need to buy. Also, take advantage of the opportunity to network with ecommerce executives in your area who are similarly looking to win in this age of distributed commerce.
Plus, there will be eggs involved. Not just that "continental" stuff.
Space is limited, so register before !
