Global Marketing Summit 2017

This year’s theme is Keeping Up With Disruption. The largest taxi company in the world owns no taxis, the largest retailer owns no inventory, the largest accommodation provider owns no real estate, and the largest publisher creates no content.


We are moving into a new era of marketing where customers, especially millennials are realizing their true worth to brands. Technological innovation has forced many businesses to reinvent themselves as their industries have been disrupted. Modern marketers need to embrace the new opportunities that these technological advances have brought, or they risk becoming irrelevant.


GMS will explore these topics in three separate panels:





Topic 1: Modern Marketing Technologies And How We Use Them
