OMMA: Is Mobile Really a Branding Vehicle?

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Friday 8th March, 2013

9:30am to 10:30am (CST)

We live in a constantly connected world, where people move seamlessly between multiple devices, and the definition of mobile is evolving beyond a set of devices. This always-on lifestyle provides an additional set of signals about user context and intent that are game-changing for marketers. Beyond "Hyperlocal" or "SoLoMo", it is really about capturing the right context and understanding what people want and need to do at different touchpoints. Google's Tim Reis, will explore how mobile can be rethought within wholly new and rich contexts, and how marketers can leverage these to make meaningful connections with their customers.
