The Omnichannel Endcap: Mapping the New CPG Shopper

From Google and Amazon searches to retailer sites and influencer recommendations, the CPG shopper's decision path has become a tangle of touchpoints that seems built to confound even the most seasoned marketing planners. How are major and emerging CPG brands capturing attention in a fragmented mediascape, building loyalty in a brand-hopping world, creating relevant new products amid SKU-choked retail?

MediaPost's Brand Insider Summit engages the daunting challenges that CPG marketers face by sharing the innovative ways both legacy and emerging brands are innovating their way through the complexity. We focus on how brands are mapping the omnichannel consumer journey, building media and data plans to target them, and merging product development with marketing and messaging to stay relevant to demanding audiences.

We will cover:

  • Media planning for omnichannel CPG shoppers
  • Building first party data troves
  • Marrying product development and marketing
  • Staying relevant by staying ahead of consumer tastes
  • Expanding your social footprints
Capturing consumer attention, trust and loyalty has moved way beyond the retail endcap to a fragmented and cluttered omnichannel maze. No one has cracked the code or discovered the one true path, but at MediaPost's CPG Brand Insider Summit we give marketers the time and space to share their insights for building the next generation of CPG marketing.

Panel: Media Mapping the New CPG Customer Journey
What's the plan? Your target buyer is all over the media map, so how do you capture their attention, get considered, inspire intent, and drive choice in the aisle? Let’s trade notes. Our panel of strategists share the shapes of their respective funnels (if it still exists). How are they reallocating investment to map against a customer journey that bounces across search, e-retailer media, streaming video, and even gaming and influencer? Where are brands seeing the media ROI now?
2:00 PM
Panel: Product Development Is the New Marketing
Product attributes trump brand for consumers making their choices. And so marketing teams find themselves involved deeper and earlier in the product development process. Our panel of brand strategists compare and contrast their successes, misfires and learnings in the emerging integration of practice of marketing and new product. How are niches and unmet consumer desire being identified, and competitive positioning and messaging being crafted by this new collaboration?

Panel: Data, Demographics, Dexterity: Staying Relevant to Changing Customers
Packaged goods are woven into consumers' everyday lives, but how do marketers keep their products relevant for changes in culture and audiences? The population is aging, diversifying, and getting fresh alternatives to your brand every day in their in-box and social feeds. How do marketers stay ahead of these many curves when it comes to staying relevant? We ask our panel to share their preparedness strategy. What operations and processes are in place to monitor consumer needs, gather the right data points, and plan for the next five years?
