  • DESCRIPTION:

    With the help of a panel of experts and an experienced moderator, we will explore how brands and sporting groups can exploit technology and data to grow and engage with their loyal ‘tribes’ in the digital world.

  • OVERVIEW:

    Genuine connections

     Technology has made us more connected than ever before – so why are many of us feeling so disconnected – an interesting juxtaposition! This societal trend is at the heart of why consumer ‘tribes’ are becoming more pronounced than ever. People are feeling the need to connect and engage in a more authentic way, with people who share genuine passions, values or interests. Marketing leaders are embracing this – think Nike, Style Runner, Dove and the emergence of fitness entrepreneur – Kayla Itsines (with over 6.8m Instagram followers).

    The great news is that sport, with passion at its centre, is in the box seat to capitalise on this growing human need to reconnect authentically, around things that matter to them. Even better is that engaged tribes can be montised by sporting organisations and their loyal sponsors.

    Thanks to technology, the tribal experience now encompasses more than ever before, giving teams and sponsors more opportunities to connect and engage, that exist well beyond the stadium and broadcast. Exciting news for some, but overwhelming for others.
