Social Media Strategies Summit


Making Water Fashionable with Instagram

How do you build an audience that wants to buy bottled water… from Mexico? That was the challenge that Giovanni Gallucci was faced with when building a digital strategy around his client Topo Chico's effervescent bottled mineral water. Answer: strike the right balance between internally produced and user-generated content of visually-pleasing photos and emotion-invoking stories on social media. Giovanni Gallucci will show attendees how to focus on social media platforms that are continuously increasing in B2C engagement like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, SnapChat and Twitter to successfully contribute to and increase fan-driven brand advocacy.

Brand Innovators Future of Food & Consumer Experience

Brand Innovators Logo

Digital media and the Internet are transforming the way brands must communicate and interact with their consumers. Evolving media vehicles, including online video and mobile advertising, location based marketing, social media, and out-of-home media, are creating new methods for connecting with consumers, anytime, anywhere, and on any device.


While the opportunities for engagement have never been greater, these new ways of interacting with the marketplace are, for the most part, a new science. More information is needed about what’s working and what’s not, measuring and analyzing data, and how much of your marketing budget should be getting allocated to interactive media.


The Brand Innovators Summits provide brand marketing and media professionals with best practices, case studies, and proof points, demonstrating how “best of breed” brands are leveraging electronic media. Attendees hear first hand from client side CMOs, media directors, and brand marketers about how they are reaping the benefits of digital media. From thoughtful panel discussions and workshops, to insightful keynotes from the most innovative leaders in brand management, our speakers share their core strategies and tactics for creating winning online advertising and social media campaigns.


The transition in media, from analog to digital, is accelerating and those brands which learn how to unlock the ROI in “real time marketing” will have a significant first mover advantage. To achieve this goal, however, corporate cultures need to change and key stakeholders at every level of the organization need to “buy in” and embrace these new media platforms. Industry leaders need to provide their management teams with all of the resources, tools, and experience necessary to maximize the opportunities that the media revolution is presenting them with.


Brand management is undergoing a sea change, and the aim of the Brand Innovators Summits is to provide marketers with the knowledge and professional network they need to succeed in this exciting environment. The Brand Innovators Summits are the only “buy side” conferences that guarantee you will learn what you are seeking most — directly from your client side peers!

Yeah Field Trip

  • El Capitan Canyon, Santa Barbara, CA (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS



Field Trip is a 5-day, 4-night event for evolving creators and artist entrepreneurs. We're talking specifically to you: photographers, videographers, designers and art directors.

At Field Trip we believe that expanding your mind is essential and for this reason we pour our best energy into bringing you 3 full days filled with classes taught by innovative teachers that will help you excel in your business and your craft.

All meals are shared making connections with other like-minded artists easy to come by. Evenings and free time are laced with activities that will leave you feeling like a kid again. All at an award-winning, 300-acre resort where "camping" equates to tin roofs and warm showers.  



Set in a gorgeous, unplugged, natural environment (imagine California luxury living—in a forest by the ocean), Field Trip is the perfect venue for you to relax, learn, and connect—in a way that’s intimate.

Our time together will be spent at El Capitan Canyon, just north of Santa Barbara along an unspoiled stretch of the California coast. 
This is not camping as you know it. We're all sleeping in cabins and not doing our business in the woods! There are hot showers, modern bathrooms and resort like amenities. Glamping!

Nestled against the Los Padres national Forest with access to 3,500 acres of pristine nature preserve, the Canyon is set on 350 acres of rolling hills and creek canyons and is a five minute walk to El Capitan State Beach.

El Capitan Canyon is the perfect place for people to unplug, relax and connect as it offers a no fuss, back to nature camp experience with s'mores by the fire, hiking, and outdoor hangouts.
