Enter the On-Demand Economy: BIA/Kelsey NOW | Seattle

by | Feb 17, 2016 | BIA, Blog, Conferences

Tomorrow’s the day. BIA/Kelsey hosts our second Local, On-Demand Economy (LODE) event, NOW | Seattle, beginning at 8:30 AM with a short explainer on the evolution of local commerce and a trip into the future of local and brand marketing user interfaces with Rackspace Futurist Robert Scoble.

From there, we’ll visit with brand wizard Stanley Hainsworth of Tether Inc., Laurent Burman of POSSIBLE and John Busby of Marchex to start a four-part tour of the challenges and opportunity represented by data-driven customer intimacy and immediate delivery in the age of logistical insight. After that, we’ll talk with leaders at Uber, HomeAdvisor, Avvo, MasterCard, HERE and many more.

It’s not too late to register if you would like to attend the show in Seattle’s Pioneer Square district.

See you tomorrow in Seattle!
