The great Direct-to-Consumer retail disruption has reached every imaginable category – from razors to connoisseur sneakers, custom pet food to dental braces. But this new generation of native digital brands now needs to scale – via traditional omnichannel and retail venues, TV and offline media. Meanwhile, many disrupted legacy brands are learning from the DTC upstarts – how to put digital first, reorganize marketing around unified data and even launch new DTC products and channels of their own.
The Brand Insider Summit: D2C brings these two worlds together as they head in each other's direction. The digital natives have shown they can build new brands via data driven performance channels, but what can they learn from the TV and retail pros about scaling up? And what lessons can the traditional marketers learn from the D2C experience about overcoming siloed organization, following the data, and radical customer-first personalization?
From data strategy to performance marketing, personalization to digital brand building, cross screen media planning to building the tech stack to drive it all, the Brand Insider Summit explores how brands new and old are building a new direct path to consumers.

Kiawah Island is… Ten miles of wide, immaculate, ocean beach on which one - or two - might walk or cycle for hours and hours without interruption. Soothing by day, utterly romantic by night, the beach is complemented by the island’s river, meandering lagoons, and pristine marshlands, and closes each sun washed day safe beneath its own star studded southern sky. The Kiawah Island Golf Resort is located southwest of Charleston. Opened in May 1976, the Resort has five golf courses, most notably, the Ocean Course which is the most famous at Kiawah Island and has been consistently named as one of the best courses in the world by several publications.
