2nd CMO Innovation Summit Hong Kong

Businesses across sectors aspire to provide individualised, anytime and anywhere brand experiences. The role of CMO therefore, is contesting that of a strategy leader, business transformer and innovation adopter. Skill gaps to fulfil this tall order, however, as to any other C-suite leaders, are widely recognised yet remain a leap forward in action. How to collect and analyse data across all channels, to truly understand customers, how to go about fulfilling such needs by designing and delivering authentic brand experiences, and how to align people, processes and technology to achieve above business objectives, are critical capabilities required of CMOs in Asia and globally.


With tremendous success last year, the 2nd CMO Innovation Summit, Asia’s premier marketing strategy forum catered for CMOs/Heads of Marketing from Fortune 500 and fastest growing companies. With a focus on the disruptive force of digital, as well as the role of CMO in building a customer-centric business, the event aims at delivering practical knowledge to equip and empower CMOs in Asia to seize internal and external opportunities for business success, and to leap forward in their careers.


As part of an integrated content, CMO Innovation Summit celebrates and extends the outreach of CMO Innovation, Asia's number one reference publication for CMOs. The summit welcomes 200 CMOs/Marketing Heads/CIOs/Chief Digital Officer/Chief Innovation Officer from retail, hospitality and other marketing-driven industries in the region, as well as cutting edge solution providers and digital strategists.

The year of 2016 has seen many changes globally and in the region. Globally competition is rising in all major industries- increasingly digitally savvy customers decide in favor or against a brand based on anytime, anywhere brand interactions in addition to product offering and pricing.

Opportunities and challenges both present themselves to marketers, and the keynote highlights the key trends to look out for in 2017, while making recommendations for marketers how to steer their efforts for another year of success.
