15th Annual Shopper Marketing Summit NYC: Event Recap


“In shopper marketing, insight without action is just overhead,” This is what Bill Akins, SVP of Business Innovation at Rockfish said in his presentation at the 15th Annual Shopper Marketing Summit in NYC, March 15-17, 2016.

DataXu was a proud sponsor of the summit for the third year in a row.  The alignment to the summit is a no brainer for DataXu based on the level of focus we put on shopper marketing efforts with the reduction of digital media and data costs, reduction in overhead costs, improvement in customer acquisition and sales and DataXu’s unique and effective cross-device solution.

The brain power was booming with over 700 attendees, including brands, retailers, agencies and solutions providers.  With 40% of registrants being brands, there were top executives from Albertsons, Meijer, Kroger, PetCo, Walgreens and more.
