Experiential Marketing: The Tech Fueled Future!
Presenters: Steve Deitz, President/Creative Director, 900lbs of Creative

It's an exciting time to be a marketer!  However, staying on top of the latest tech trends and learning how to apply this knowledge can be very challenging.  The traditional methods of advertising simply aren't enough and messages need more layers in order to resonate.  Experiential marketing cuts through the endless media saturation with extraordinary connections between technology, people and brands.  These tech-fueled activations get your audience "participating" and playing an active part in an experience.  Social media and technology enable this evolution to live on long after the live experience is over.

Come join Steve Deitz, President and Creative Director of 900lbs of Creative, as he explores creative combinations of tech including virtual reality, infrared motion tracking and the latest in augmented reality.  You'll leave inspired with new ways to achieve the "Wow", the "Why" and the "ROI".  Come nerd out with us!

In case you're wondering, this is part of the CAE Domain 9: Marketing, Public Relations, and Communications
