[ Press Release ] NAVIGATING THE DIGITAL FUTURE Leading marketers share insights at MarketingPulse ONLINE 2021

MarketingPulse – Asia’s premier marketing and branding conference, returns this year with an enviable list of speakers starring global brands, star entrepreneurs, advertising agencies, media and leading innovation professionals. They will be discussing the latest trends in digital marketing and how to navigate the data-driven environment.

Given market and business disruptions brought on by the pandemic, businesses are increasingly searching for ways to connect with consumers online. The event will be highlighting “Digital Future and Innovation”, exploring both challenges and opportunities in digital innovation & transformation, 5G technology and sonic branding.

As with previous years, MarketingPulse is bringing some of world’s best known brands to share their success stories. One of the guest speakers this year is Timothy Armoo, who built and sold a media company at the tender age of 17. Now, the 24 year-old is the CEO and founder of Fanbytes –a leading influencer marketing agency to attract Gen Z fans for global brands using its network of influencers on Tiktok, Snapchat, Instagram and YouTube. Fanbytes counts Apple, Nike, McDonald’s, Deliveroo and even the UK government as its clients.

Armoo thinks “the variable to success now is not about budget or how much you can spend – the variable is content.” He created Fanbytes whilst still studying at university. Within years, the company has won recognition from international publications like Forbes and Business Insider. Bloomberg has even described it as “leading the charge for Gen Z and millennial marketing”.

Mayur Gupta, Former Global Vice President of Growth and Marketing of Spotify will also be sharing his insights.

The former executive at Spotify developed new strategies to grow its subscribed user base. As its Global Vice President for Growth & Marketing, Gupta also introduced a marketing ecosystem that connects the right artist with the right fan.

Forbes magazine honoured Gupta in its list of “50 Game-Changing Marketing Leaders” in 2019. A year later, the publication named him one of the “World’s Most Influential CMOs” in 2020.

Gupta will be hosting a session on how marketers can respond to behavioural shifts by using technologies in an era of uncertainty, as well as predict upcoming growth marketing trends in this age of digital transformation.

Besides talks on video strategies, gamified marketing, sonic branding and 5G, participants can also take part in workshops focused on digital marketing, to get the latest developments in social commerce, influencer marketing and live streaming commerce.
