The Second Screen: How Mobile Companion Devices are Defining Total Customer Experience
Few digitally literate people today are interacting with their television, car, bike, or house without simultaneously engaging with a mobile device. Nielsen reported that during the second quarter of 2012, over 80% of tablet and smartphone owners in the U.S. used their second screen of choice while watching TV. The world’s leading developers are taking advantage of this opportunity by creating innovative and compelling “second screen experiences” to help augment other activities. In this session, our panelists will present how they are developing applications and services that augment other experiences.

Aristotle said that often “the whole is more than the sum of its parts.” Nowhere is that more evident than in the world of media engagement. Taking advantage of the comparative advantages of various media platforms and using them to enhance and feed each other can yield far greater returns than using each in it’s own “siloed” domain. In this session, our panelists will discuss the tools and techniques they employ to converge traditional media, social channels, cloud-based technologies and mobile platforms to drive their creative and media initiatives.
What’s the Future of Business? Changing the Way Businesses Create Experiences
Long time Tweet House pal and Altimiter Group analyst Brian Solis has a new book. And as usual, it’s receiving rave reviews from industry leaders.

In the future, successful businesses will be ‘Customer Companies’—companies that connect with their customers, partners, employees, and products in entirely new ways.”
In this session Brian will discuss the core takeaways from the book “What’s the Future of Business: Changing the Way Businesses Create Experiences” and what organizations are best employing the strategies and tactics he covers within.
