General Agenda

The CMO Summit at Modern Customer Experience

The CMO Summit at Modern Customer Experience
April 25-26, 2017
Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas

It would be a massive understatement to say that the role of the CMO has undergone significant changes over the past few years. Recent research from the CMO Council indicates that CMOs are increasingly being held responsible for growth strategies and revenue generation within their companies. Moreover, according to the same research, CMOs now say they also expect to advance the bottom line and champion the end-to-end customer experience.

The CMO community is without question a peer-to-peer group whereby CMOs rely greatly on their fellow chief marketing officers to learn from, share ideas, and even commiserate with one another. Oracle Marketing Cloud is proud to present the CMO Summit, an exclusive opportunity for CMOs to engage peers in a collaborative environment. The agenda will be filled with rich content and VIP experiences, led by some of the most widely respected marketing influencers and practitioners in the field. Although the CMO Summit agenda is tailored for the chief marketing office, we welcome C-suite executives who are working with the CMO to drive customer experience to join us.

Attendance is by invitation only* and includes the following:

  • VIP access to all keynote sessions, the Markie Awards, and the Customer Appreciation Event
  • Exclusive networking breakfast and lunch with Oracle Marketing Cloud executives and special guests
  • Engaging content
  • Private networking event
