INTA 2020 New York Conference Brands in Society: Their Influence and Responsibility

16-17 March 2020 - New York

As borders soften and technology evolves at record speeds, brands must expand to respond to a larger, more diverse consumer base, recognizing that conversations tend to be global and touch a virtually unlimited audience. One voice, one opinion can go viral and change the world.  Today, consumers are empowered and emboldened to share their views and help shape brands —they demand that the products and services that they purchase reflect their world views, are delivered faster and better, and that the brands they support have a social conscience. Is this new emboldened consumer the norm or an example of the pendulum swinging too far? Can brands truly appeal to all of their consumers or do they need to choose sides? Is the brand with a conscience a fad or here to stay? How do legal teams navigate these changing norms and embrace technology and change?
