1:00 PM Vision break: What happens when the screen goes away?

Modern marketers know how to sell on the screen — from TV, to desktop, to mobile. But new technology is evolving beyond the screen. In an ever-increasing voice-driven world, what will we do when our customers interact just by talking to us? Conversion rate and user experience expert Jeffrey Eisenberg will talk about the unprecedented challenge marketers face in the age of Siri, Alexa, Google Home, and Watson. Plus, everyone will get a copy of Jeffrey’s new book. Learn more about Jeffrey here.

9:00 AM Vision Break: Social search and rescue

As social media leaders at big brands, we know that when a crisis hits, our teams will be right there in the middle of it. We’ll meet Bill Moore, the CEO of the walkie-talkie app Zello (and co-founder of TuneIn). He’ll tell us how Zello became a mission-critical tool during hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, how they responded in real-time during the crisis, became the #1 app on iTunes and Google Play, and even survived a hack. Learn more about Zello and their amazing story here.
