Keynote: Thinking Outside The Search Box
Stepping outside the search box starts with getting beyond today’s traditional Ten Blue Links, Early Innings, DR Machine. All historical descriptions of search are ill-equipped to describe where search will go — or even what it will represent for brands in the future. Understanding the future requires marketers to read data trends, understand behavior shifts and imagine the next wave of devices and platforms that will transform the industry. GroupM Next CEO Chris Copeland will explore the opportunities that will redefine search as well as how it will intersect with data accessibility, real-time marketing and both social and technological shifts in consumer behavior. Breaking away from search constraints of the past will open the door to creativity, discovery and consumer engagement.

Did you ever want to get inside the minds of the leaders defining search? Take a rare behind-the-scenes look at how search is shaped by Google, Microsoft and Yahoo. Panelists will share their unique perspective on how they strive to help advertisers succeed. They’ll discuss how they’re improving the consumer search experience through new innovations, share views on how the cross-screen experience changes consumer behavior, and how consumer behavior changes search engine marketing. They also will share how advertisers can embrace and adapt to evolving trends and suggest new ways for advertisers to approach search as the industry changes.

Presentation: Get Discovered In Local Search Or Become Irrelevant
With more consumers conducting searches to find local businesses, especially on their mobile devices, it is becoming imperative for marketers to serve up in results with accurate information in their listing. Push, location-based services and other emerging technologies will create new challenges across search engines, maps, directories and social media sites. Sabrina Alimi of the IAB will present benefits of having a local search strategy and best practices for making sure business listings drive customers from the Web through the door.

Panel: Mining the Data That Measures Mobile Search ROI
Measuring the return on investment for mobile advertising comes with unique challenges. Traditional conversion tracking relies on consumers hitting a cookie on a thank-you page, which doesn’t work for measuring phone calls or offline, in-store purchases. Now that consumers frequently switch devices depending on their context, location and time of day, measuring ROI becomes even more difficult. The panel will debate tactics and strategies marketers can use to determine the real ROI.

Panel: Multi-Channel Experimentation -- Getting from Big Data to Better Results
As marketers increasingly harness data science to mine new insights from the multiple streams of new data, the next challenge becomes determining how to put insights to use and make a positive impact on customer response and behavior. "Structured experiments are the best way to resolve competing hypotheses on how digital tactics impact customers," according to a recent report by Google and the Marketing Leadership Council. Panelists will discuss the challenges and best practices in harnessing the data streams for better search marketing via multi-channel experimentation.

Keynote: How Numbers Will Power the Next Era in Data-Driven Search
The data Google, Bing and Yahoo leverage turns “dumb” messages into highly targeted digital advertising. We all know search engines use high-powered automated systems that make massive calculations on global user intent in real-time. These are some of the best examples we have of actually leveraging "big data" concepts in the marketplace. Now, other types of advertising are utilizing the same concepts and making all digital and even some non-digital advertising just as target-able. Paul Barrett of Accenture Interactive will report on the fusion of data-driven search with the rich streams of data arising from other advertising sources to explain changes that search marketers should expect in the coming years.

Panel: Product Listing Ads: Learning from Commerce Sites as They Learn from Us
Should marketers consider Product Listing Ads (PLAs) an extension of paid search campaigns? What implications would this model have for mobile search and search engine optimization as content and images become more important? Some believe one-click shopping will emerge. Others see PLAs cannibalizing text ads. PLAs continue to proliferate across search engines and comparison shopping sites like Amazon. Our panel will debate best practices to support future campaigns and share knowledge about emerging services entering the PLA space.

Panel: Welcome To Social Search Engine Optimization and Search 3.0
With the launch of Facebook's Graph Search, along with the inclusion of social in Bing and Google search query results, marketers must design a multichannel approach to tactics, strategy and data analysis. Search engines have begun to use social data to directly influence rankings and validate relevance. This session illustrates how an effective social media campaign will yield positive returns, not only as shared media, but also lay the foundation for the next generation of SEO, or SSEO. Marketers will learn how to create a SEO social culture with their organization and agency partners through first- and third-party data.

Keynote: Generic Top Level Domains: The Dark Horse in Marketers' Toolboxes
The days of dot-com are numbered -- are you ready? Thousands of Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) names will begin appearing by the end of 2013 from brands like Amazon, Google, and Microsoft ... along with a variety of retail stores and manufacturers. How can brands use the new domains as an anchor for corporate assets (including social and mobile initiatives), help differentiate their respective companies and gain competitive advantage? Wolfe walks using gTLDs for a better search experience, to mine data, to protect brand authenticity and to evolve TV and Internet distribution.
