The event has started!


The last year has introduced unforeseen levels of marketing innovation, transformation, speed, and agility. Due to the global impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, CMOs and marketing leaders have learned how to navigate uncertainty, balance constantly changing priorities and budgets, evolve their marketing messages, and work from anywhere with technology and data.

Together we will dive into the insights and trends from the Salesforce’s 7th edition State of Marketing report and discuss the biggest takeaways from a year unlike any other.
– How marketing leaders pivoted to address rapid and fundamental shifts in consumer behaviour
– The impacts of a distributed workforce and how marketing leaders are enabling new methods of collaboration
– The data marketers are collecting to better understand their customer
– How marketing leaders are re-skilling their teams to keep up with the speed and pace of innovation

In this executive roundtable we will discuss:
– 90% of marketers say organisational priorities have changed since pre-pandemic, across everything from innovation to customer engagement to collaboration. What has been the biggest shift in your marketing priorities over the past year?
– The top priority for Thai marketers is about creating a cohesive customer journey across channels and devices, do you agree? How has your customer journey evolved over the year?
– Focusing on growth and retention, what are your requirements when choosing the right marketing technology for your business needs and transformation journey?
