Asia’s premier marketing and branding conference features talks from representatives of Blue Bottle Coffee, Nike, Alibaba and more

In the last year, as the world went online to stay connected during the Covid-19 pandemic, virtual events have become the norm. People have become accustomed not only to socialising and entertaining themselves online, but also to networking and conducting business in the virtual realm. But where many have succumbed to the pitfalls of tech troubles, some businesses have pivoted, embracing the ‘new normal’ in no small measure.

MarketingPulse Online—a digital branding and marketing conference—is a two-day virtual platform dedicated to sharing insights from leaders in their field, with a wide range of knowledge sharing sessions and workshops scheduled on key skills for post-pandemic business.

Taking place on March 30 and 31, MarketingPulse Online will have two main focuses: Marketing for Good (and how best to create impactful, positive branding) and Digital Transformation for brands and platforms. More than a mere conference, it aims to serve as a melting pot for like-minded professionals to explore new solutions to challenging new markets and to anticipate new developments on the horizon.

Opening the conference with a discussion on connecting brand values with consumers is Bryan Meehan. CEO and Executive Chair of Blue Bottle Coffee—a brand that has built a cult following internationally and successfully launched in Hong Kong last year—Meehan combines his role as a caffeine connoisseur with his passion and commitment to the environment and sustainable business practices. He shares how the brand has successfully marketed a coffee lifestyle, how Blue Bottle Coffee is embracing impactful marketing, and how the brand has gained credibility as an industry disruptor.

Other notable speakers on the agenda include Greg Hoffman, who is a global brand leader and former Nike Chief Marketing Officer. In his most recent role as Nike Vice President of Global Brand Innovation, Hoffman led teams tasked with envisioning the future of storytelling and enhancing consumer experiences. Hoffman draws on his extensive experience to discuss the role of innovation in enhancing consumer experiences, and shares his insights into the role of the Chief Marketing Officer in years to come.
