6 July: The Marketing Investment Balancing Act: Short-term sales or long-term brand building?
Everybody agrees that there is a need to invest in achieving both short term sales, and brand building to protect longer term sales. The challenge is in deciding how to divide the limited marketing spends, and how to measure and prove it's working. In this session, we will discuss how different companies are making those decisions, and what they have learned in the process.

Analytics uses historical information to learn from the past and predict the future. In times of disruption, these predictions can become invalid. So, should old analytic models be thrown away, or are they still useful? In this session, we will discuss how different companies are using a combination of historical and current information to make better predictions.
For many years, AI/ML has been touted as the answer to better marketing decision making. But so far, use of AI in this area has been limited. In this session, we will discuss how different companies are incorporating AI/ML in their marketing decisions, and their successes and learnings.
