eMetrics Summit San Francisco Agenda Announced – It’s All About You


Santa Barbara, California (PRWEB) December 13, 2014

The full agenda for the eMetrics Summit in San Francisco (March 29 – April 2, 2015) has been released, marking a significant shift in format toward professional development and interactivity for the audience.

The eMetrics Summit, the original event about gleaning marketing insight from data, is becoming much more interactive. Major brands and top industry experts will still present, but there will be fewer keynotes and PowerPoints in favor of group activities. Attendees will have more time to discuss their business challenges and grow their network of business acquaintances, mentors and colleagues.

“If the Internet has taught us anything, it’s that people really want to learn from people,” said eMetrics Summit Founder, Jim Sterne. “Lectures and presentations are great, but you can read blogs and watch videos all day long. The real value of gathering in person has always been in the hallways and the receptions and the meals where you meet your peers and share your story. The value of going to a conference is overwhelming when the audience is respected.”

The eMetrics Summit now includes multiple opportunities to meet fellow marketing analytics professionals in a variety of undertakings: roundtable discussions, analytics exercises, speed dating, receptions and meals have been designed to make the most of gathering in person.

A powerful lineup of relevant brands to introduce important topics for discussion includes American Eagle Outfitters, AT&T, Autodesk, CVS, Electronic Arts, Ernst & Young, Facebook, Ford, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Nestle and Prudential.

Additionally, top industry specialists will be providing sage advice on how to increase sales, lower costs and improve customer satisfaction with data. Experts like these will inform and be on hand to answer questions:

    Feras Alhlou (visualization)
    Gary Angel (the truth about Big Data)
    Ole Bahlmann (mobile app metrics)
    Jim Cain (analytics project management)
    João Correia (visualization)
    Tammy Everts (brain imaging)
    Adam Greco (web analytics)
    Gregory Kaminski (visualization)
    Kayden Kelly (change management)
    Ronny Kohavi (experimentation)
    Russell McAthy (online branding)
    Kelle O’Neal (data governance)
    Laura Patterson (executive communication)
    Eric Siegel (predictive analytics)
    Jennefer Veesenmeyer (dashboards)
    Monica Wheat (social media)

Sterne’s advice is, “Bring business cards! Yes, they sound old fashioned, but the ability to reach out to the people you meet at the conference is the most significant outcome of all.”
