Brian Solis will share the importance of experience in each of the four moments of truth and why the A.R.T. of Engagement will change how we think about marketing and ROI.

Soon, virtually everybody will have mobile phones or tablets with high-speed broadband data connections that are faster than any thought possible. Digital Natives with online social media communities will demand and expect companies to provide even better customer experiences and easy access to product answers immediately. Companies that fail to address these increasing customer needs will be slammed on social media quickly with devastating results. Gone will be the days when companies can send emails saying they will get back to you in 24 hours.
