Find out why people attend the IRI Growth Summit

The speed at which the CPG industry is evolving is staggering. The sheer volume of data collected grows exponentially each year, and the tools and technology used to interpret that data are becoming more sophisticated. At the same time, consumers expectations are growing, as they increasingly want marketing that’s personal and relevant to them. As e-commerce and Amazon change the rules of the game, and smaller companies take share from larger ones, marketers must stay ahead of the curve if they want to innovate and grow.

But how? By creating more collaborative relationships between manufacturers, retailers and media partners, sharing knowledge and goals, tapping into the right tools to generate new insights and then using that information to develop more effective one-to-one personalized marketing programs that can be accurately measured and improved.


At the 2017 IRI Growth Summit, you will learn how collaboration and personalization can transform your marketing and create new growth within your organization.
