Pioneering the future of social media


November 9, 2023

12:00 pm ET

Join us virtually!

Hear from technologists and brand leaders as they dive into a future-forward discussion about what’s possible in the coming decade and how you can navigate technology to elevate your brand in the social media landscape.

Join this virtual talk to learn:

  • How the social media of the future will lean heavily into technologies that allow people to express themselves and connect – like AR and Web3. 
  • How to be a student of new platforms and new innovations. Go where your audience is and identify how your brand can add value to the conversation. Broker a different level of partnership with the channels themselves to glean richer insights.
  • Why it’s important to focus on experimentation, but not to worry about being “first”. As long as your execution of new or emerging technology is thoughtful, puts your consumer first and creates something meaningful, you’ll find success.
