SEPTEMBER 14th – 9.15am to 10.15am

Dive into the web3: is the revolution really happening?

Web3, NFT, metavers, ethereum, blockchain … we hear more and more about these terms but what do they really mean? Are we at the dawn of a profound transformation?

Thanks to the technological advance of Web3, will the boundaries of customer experience be pushed back once again? In concrete terms, how will this new technology based on blockchain allow brands to reinvent themselves? How will it transform the strategy of companies? How will it reconcile traditional sales channels with the metaverse?

Beyond the buzz generated by brands taking the plunge, there are many risks to take into account in order to position oneself sustainably in this ecosystem. What issues and action plans should be put in place? Is a new customer experience possible?

How to attract and retain this new generation of consumers? How can you engage your communities and co-construct with them?

SEPTEMBER 14th – 5:50pm to 6:50pm

CSR: customers challenge companies

Customers’ awareness of the environment and corporate social responsibility has increased considerably. CSR is a new criterion of choice for the new generations, a source of arbitration for consumers who care about the planet, and now goes beyond the strict framework of legal constraints.

Customers now consider the promises made by brands as part of their perception of a successful experience, but even more so the concrete proof in their daily lives. Encouraged by the health crisis, shaken by new disruptive models, questioned about the working conditions of their employees, companies are facing new challenges and can no longer confine CSR to timid institutional communication: they must act and position themselves at the risk of losing the trust of customers.

The speakers of this plenary will share their strategies and initiatives, sources of inspiration for the participants of this edition of CRM & Marketing Meetings 2022.
