Super Session

Winning in omnichannel

This two-part super session will showcase how industry leading sales measurement, shopping behavior diagnostics and digital shelf analytics will position your company to excel in the omnichannel marketplace and stay ahead of the ever-evolving consumer landscape.  

How to effectively compete in an omnichannel world 
How well are you positioned to capture growth in the omnichannel marketplace? With rapid digital transformation and surging e-commerce, it’s critical to take a channel agnostic approach when developing your strategy. This session will explore the complex environment and why it requires omnichannel data and insights that are broad in coverage, granular in product detail—and most importantly—accurate and precise.  

Going deeper to understand omnichannel consumers 
As consumer behavior upends category norms, brands are rethinking their “where to play” and “how to win” strategies to win consumer share of wallet. And with an explosion of data through e-commerce and rampant fragmentation of data sources, strategy alignment is as critical as it is complex. This session will introduce NielsenIQ’s latest omnishopper primary research, combined with omnishopper data and insights, to forecast the next frontier of consumer behavior.

Optimizing revenue in an age of inflation

Join this session to learn how to leverage dynamic modeling capabilities and artificial intelligence to optimize revenue, streamline pricing and promotion plans, get real-time market insights, and build account-level trade plans while maximizing margin opportunities.

Rich attribution to drive growth  

Gluten-free chips…ketogenic snack bars…no added sugar drinks…hypoallergenic lotion…reef-safe sunscreen…the way shoppers seek out products both online and in-store is shifting substantially—from brand-based, to products that meet individual need-states and preferences. This session will highlight strategies to increase product discoverability, why it’s critical to leverage content beyond the label, how to identify attributes that matter most, and how to harness this movement to drive sales.

Evolution of clean beauty

Clean beauty has emerged as a major trend in recent years, but the definition is constantly evolving to mean far more than its “free-from” attributes. Instead, consumers are now demanding that brands ramp up their sustainability commitments with products that are refillable, biodegradable, and plastic-free. This session will highlight the latest insights on the evolving clean beauty category and recommendations for how brands can better understand and capitalize on the next wave of consumer trends 

Pillar: Progressing with purpose

Viewing wellness through a new lens 

While the global pandemic inspired many to reimagine their wellness, lifestyle and consumption habits, it also exposed comorbidities like diabetes, which impacts some 34 million Americans alongside another 88 million prediabetic patients. This pivotal moment—where consumers are facing staggering health care costs and are more open to proactively preventing illness using food and supplements as medicine—represents a massive opportunity for retail trading partners. This session will highlight key macro wellness trends and provide a model on how the industry can solve health challenges, from identifying white space opportunities to leveraging new ways to drive retail loyalty.
