Must Register to Attend


Join our upcoming moderated panel discussion on Thursday Aug. 6, which will be a lively debate around the future utilizations of customer data in the marketing ecosystem

The connected commerce landscape requires marketers to use data effectively to target and interact with their audiences. But as consumers continue to shift digitally, the way marketers utilize this data will also evolve, creating new challenges and opportunities to understand customers, improve their experiences and ultimately drive sales.

The impending and slow ‘death of the cookie’ has sparked countless industry-wide debates about the future of data in the marketing ecosystem. More recently, other announcements such as Apple’s update to IDFA, have made the conversation relevant in the media again.

This conversation is not new, however, as privacy regulations around the globe and consumers’ calls for transparency act as constant reminders that a sustainable model for data-driven marketing is needed. COVID-19 has only accelerated this, as more people look to the digital world to engage in many more aspects of their lives – the expectation is for a true value exchange between brands and consumers, where there is a transparent, trusting relationship and more relevant customer experiences.

As an industry in transformation, what will future data strategies look like?

FP Consultancy invites you to attend a hosted panel session to fuel discussion around questions like:

  • How do changes to the data ecosystem increase our reliance on first-party data? What role do second and third-party data play in the future?
  • Who in the ad ecosystem stands to benefit from the death of the cookie? Who will need to adapt significantly in order to survive?
  • Why has COVID-19 caused greater urgency to get future data management strategies in place?
  • What does building a brand entail in a future without third party data?
  • What should brands consider doing or changing today to ensure they’re well positioned to leverage first party data strategies, with consent as a key focus?

This panel will bring diverse perspectives from ForwardPMX and insight from other industry insiders. We look forward to hosting you!
