The Next Frontier in Digital Marketing Transformation

4-1AI makes things more convenient, more simple, and more personalized. And, the real magic of AI is that consumers often have no idea it’s there. Things just work, better.

Marketers who take the initiative to understand AI and find AI-powered solutions to business challenges will be able to intelligently automate time-intensive, data-driven activities; unearth hidden insights in analytics; activate unused data; augment predictive capabilities; and execute personalized campaigns of unprecedented complexity that drive meaningful business results.

But, how do you get started?

How do you figure out which use cases to prioritize? And, how do you navigate the hundreds of vendors touting AI, machine learning, and deep learning capabilities?

Welcome to the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Conference (MAICON)—an event for practitioners and leaders seeking to drive the next frontier of digital marketing transformation. Our inaugural event attracted 300+ professionals from 12 counties and 28 states. Year two promises continued learning and an ever-growing community of marketing leaders seeking to drive change.

The 2021 conference will be held virtually Sept. 15 - 16, 2021. 

Why Attend?

Artificial intelligence has reached peak hype stage, but is it possible that its potential to transform marketing, and your career, is even greater than advertised?

Gartner forecasts global business value derived from AI is projected to reach $1.9 trillion in 2019, ramping up to $3.9 trillion in 2022 through three primary sources of customer experience, cost reduction, and new revenue.

Meanwhile, McKinsey Global Institute projects up to a $6 trillion impact of AI and other analytics on marketing and sales, including the areas of pricing and promotion ($1.9T), customer service management ($1.0T), next product to buy/individualized offering ($1.0T), customer acquisition/lead generation ($0.7T), marketing budget allocation ($0.6T), churn reduction ($0.38T), and channel management ($0.32T).
