3:00 pm – Why Our Biggest Opportunity is The Smallest Moments Ben Killmer, Strategic Partner Manager at Google.
Mobile has fractured the consumer journey into hundreds of real-time, intent-driven micro-moments. These micro-moments are the I-want-to-know, I-want-to-go, I-want-to-do, I-want-to-buy moments when we turn to a device to act on our needs — and they’re the new battleground for brands. To win, businesses need to be at every micro-moment that matters to their audience and deliver experiences that move people to choose their business. As a company built on immediacy and relevance, Google has a unique ability to help brands be there and be relevant in these moments.

4:00 pm – Event Ends
