IN-LANGUAGE OR IN-CULTURE? DECISION SCIENCE ENABLES WHAT YOUR DIGITAL APPROACH IS MISSING

Seraj Bharwani, Chief Strategy Officer, AcuityAds

Simply turning on the language targeting tactic means you’re missing over 50% of your intended multicultural audience. Bi-culture and bilingual segments have remained elusive to marketers who are trying to make a genuine connection with their intended audiences.

In this session, you will learn how new decisioning technologies (i.e. machine learning) are being used to reach the multicultural segment. Using real-time consumer data on social, search and video-viewing behaviors, these tools are delivering early results with campaigns targeting in-culture personas for leading brands.

 

SHOULD CORPORATE AMERICA JUMP ON THE SOCCER OPPORTUNITY?

Tiago Pinto, Global Marketing Director, Gatorade, Pepsico

There is no true global sports brand that is dominant without having a significant presence in soccer. U.S. soccer audiences are growing at a rapid pace and soccer is currently the fourth or fifth sport ranked by audience size.  With the 2026 Soccer World Cup on the horizon, the ascent of soccer as one of the top three U.S. sports seems almost inevitable. Do brands need to jump on the wagon at this relatively early stage and if so how? What ways are there to align with soccer content: Domestic U.S teams, European or Latin American teams or leagues or via national teams? What a major global marketer with a vast soccer marketing experience recommends to U.S. brand marketers.
