11:00 am – 11:30 am Bringing Retailer-Industry partnerships in the non-food market to the next level through CM
In disruptive times and with customer behaviour becoming ever more hybrid, designing entire product ranges to meet more demanding customer needs is an absolute must in both retail and manufacturing. Targeted category management allows you to offer customers
exactly what they want, thereby creating mutual growth for both sides. This model has been achieving success in the FMCG market for years, but is a clear innovative approach to the tech industry. Find out how  retailers can work together with manufacturers to successfully
bring this model to life in future, and how they can identify and exploit targeted growth potentials by using GfK Insights.

Panel discussion:
How does digital disruption change brands, retailers and consumers?
Everybody has been talking about digitization for quite some time, but is your brand really prepared to handle it? How do top players
deal with the challenges of digitization? Which role does market intelligence play – today and in the future?
Together with manufacturers, retailers and consumer experts, we discuss the impact of digitization on their own brand, how their consumer relationship changes and which best practices already exist.

02:00 pm – 02:30 pm Data-driven Consumer Centricity: How Market Research can contribute to a mindset shift
To be long-term successful, companies have to ensure they really understand consumer needs and act upon. This means for many established companies a tremendous mindset shift. Market research needs to play a fundamental role: By connecting data driven consumer learning from various sources in a digestible manner and by making sure that key learnings are heard and discussed through the
hierarchies so they finally can lead to concrete actions.

Lutz Hollemann, Philip Morris
02:30 pm – 03:00 pm Turning data into knowledge for better Trade Marketing: Integrating data sources and applying advanced analytics
Knowledge is power. Understanding sooner than your competitors what is happening at the PoS can give you the competitive edge. But knowledge requires more than just information and data – it requires connecting the dots and grasping the full picture with the clarity required for decisive action. This is exactly the purpose for which we employ data analytics and are integrating our data
assets to move our clients ahead in trade marketing.

Keynote

Jochen Schweizer,
Entrepreneur & Motivational Speaker

Motivational speaker Jochen Schweizer offers his audiences an unforgettable experience. Unlike many other self-proclaimed motivational speakers, Jochen Schweizer inspires listeners through the ways in which he succeeded in shaping his own life. He speaks from his own experiences as an adventurer, entrepreneur and investor.

His maxims are: "Have the courage to make radical changes" and "He who dares, may lose. However, he who doesn't dare is guaranteed to lose.”

In his speech "Big leaps require courage", he took us on a whirlwind journey through his exciting life, discussing issues like:
  • Courage consists above all of one thing, namely believing in your own abilities.
  • The uncertainty of the unknown is where we find the perfect moment, it's where we learn to fly.
  • Even if you don't do anything, something will happen. It just won't be what you want
