CMO RoundTable: Digital Engagement “vNext” – What Should it Look Like?

Thursday, September 22, 2022 3:00 PM EST

Today’s agenda will have enlightened and informed the savvy B2B marketing executives and professionals in the audience… But what’s coming next? CMOs agree that online gatherings will be a permanent fixture in the going-forward hybrid work reality. The mundane virtual conferences of 2020-21, and the tired webinars that preceded them will give way to a metaverse of live, interactive, and immersive digital experiences.

Long before the pandemic thrust virtual events to the forefront, savvy marketers found great return on their investment in online gatherings. As promised, the Digital Engagement Summit has brought together experts from multiple disciplines to talk about best practices and thought leadership. But it’s also a conversation.  None of us have all the answers.  

In this session, senior marketing leaders who have spent time, energy, resources, and budget on digital engagement will discuss their best projections for what the next iteration of short- (webinar) and long-form (virtual event) gatherings could look like.
