Best Practice Sessions

What are your peers doing to help their brands and businesses be more successful? What small changes could you implement for big returns? Find out during the best practice sessions that feature live case studies of strategies that worked and guidance for future initiatives. You’ll walk away with the insights and motivation you need to stay one step ahead in your own business.

Sessions will include topics such as:

  • Implementing 21st-century media campaign planning, targeting and measurement strategies that connect what people see to what they buy
  • Developing essential new approaches to retailer/manufacturer collaboration for more win/win scenarios 
  • Using predictive analytics to proactively find pricing, trade and other opportunities for growth

Innovation Showcase

Cutting-edge solutions. Proven technology. Expect that and more when you take a stroll through the Showcase. Here, you can meet IRI’s product experts and partners as they demonstrate the newest ways to uncover actionable and relevant insights with solutions that are solely focused on improving your business outcomes.

At the Innovation Showcase you will be able to visit multiple kiosks for live action demos and in-depth conversations with our experts. Organised under the same three themes as the best practice sessions, stop by to learn how:

  • retailers and manufacturers drive growth through superior collaboration
  • advanced analytics are used by peer organisations to deliver growth
  • retailers manage large, complex data sets and simply democratise insights throughout their organisations

Connect with other industry leaders in the Innovation Showcase area and enjoy the Happy Hour during the evening session.

Innovation Showcase Opening Hours:
