iMedia Brand Summit: Man vs. Machine

February 22-25, 2015, Amelia Island, Florida

As witnessed in countless other industries, technological disruption in marketing is inevitable. Automation will deeply permeate media, advertising, and marketing, as well as products, programs, and processes. The real promise of marketing automation is seamless always-on, multi-channel marketing -- the ability to trigger the right brand messaging at the right time across all touch points. Marketers can benefit from programmatic buying and other automation, but will that efficiency undermine creativity and humanity?

iMedia Commerce Summit: The Future of Shopping

April 12-14, 2015, Minneapolis, Minnesota

The lines between online and offline shopping aren't just blurring; they've disappeared altogether. If your marketing strategies don't reflect this convergence, you will get left behind. Omni-channel marketing -- a seamless approach to the consumer experience through all available shopping channels -- is the new minimum consumer expectation. Are your e-commerce, shopper marketing, and mobile strategies aligned to deliver on this requirement?

iMedia Agency Summit: The Dynamic Agency Model

May 3-6, 2015, Rancho Palos Verdes, California

In the constantly changing marketing ecosystem, agencies continue to refine and redefine their value proposition in order to remain relevant. Brands are slowly moving programmatic technology in-house and developing automated, always-on programs for almost every marketing channel. When this shift becomes a broader reality, with agencies continuing to lose media dollars, will we see agencies become purely strategic or creative partners? Will certain agencies move downstream to provide services to the midmarket and below, essentially running marketing technology stacks on behalf of advertisers in an outsourced capacity? In short, what does the future hold for agencies?
