About this Innovation Talk

Connected packaging: how brands can activate their most powerful owned-media asset | Rob Hollands, SharpEnd

Brands have a transformational opportunity to activate their largest owned media asset - the product - to deliver relevant and engaging experiences, create new service models and surface previously unseen consumer insights.

In this rapid-fire session, Rob Hollands will introduce the concept of the ‘connected consumer’, explore how brands are combining creativity and technology to engage consumers (from pilot through to scale) and unpack the incredible data opportunity.​

What will I learn?

By attending this Innovation Talk, you will discover:

  • how your brand can engage with consumers in new ways by deploying connected packaging technologies
  • how household-name brands such as Pernod Ricard are gaining new insights into their consumers through their packaging
  • the creative possibilities that the internet of things can offer to brands and packaging/product developers

You will have a chance to put your questions to Rob in a Q&A session following the talk.
