Adapt or die – learn the secrets top brands use to manage their martech strategies

The talent wars. Culture and organizational challenges. Managing change. Disruptive business models.

The speed of change continues to accelerate and rewards those who adapt faster than their competition. Ever increasing customer expectations in a technology-powered world and the need to respond with improved customer experiences are the drivers of change. Without a complete overhaul of an organization’s behavior, many marketing technology initiatives will fail to deliver expected results.

“Technology changes exponentially, but organizations change logarithmically.” – Scott Brinker

Martec’s Law may be the greatest management challenge of the 21st century. Understanding how to manage relatively slow-changing organizations in a rapidly changing technological environment is an epic challenge.

Attending the MarTech Conference helps you see the complete picture. We’ll talk about how to frame the scope of the issues, select appropriate technologies and how to transform into an agile, customer-focused organization. You’ll learn new strategies to guide you through your own digital transformation journey.

Dive into martech strategy with case studies and executive-level discussions on marketing technology management, strategy, and investment led by candid discussions with leading CMOs and VCs.
