Morning Session 1 – Omnichannel Insights from Walmart Practitioners

Driving Connected Commerce and Total Business Impact with Walmart

Although connected commerce isn’t a new term, there are still many brands that struggle to implement best practices and take full advantage of the benefits. All too often, retail media and ecommerce operate in silos and fail to create total business impact as they should. By pursuing an integrated, omnichannel approach to marketing, brands can drive holistic growth and not just stellar media results.

In this session you will learn about:

  • Walmart’s progression as a connected commerce platform
  • New ways to approach omnichannel marketing
  • Examples of implementing connected commerce strategies

Afternoon Session 3

Dominating retail media: Using retail analytics to accelerate Walmart advertising success

As data deprecation and signal loss continue to plague advertisers, retail media has firmly established itself as a critical strategy for the post-cookie era. However, it isn’t without data challenges of its own. The data-sharing capabilities of most retailers are rudimentary. And gaps in data connectivity—both within and between retailers—are leading to measurement constraints that limit performance possibilities.

To retain retail media momentum, identifying and bridging the right datasets together to inform holistic KPIs, measure incremental impact, and optimize performance to meet customer expectations will be key.

Join Skai as we share some best practice examples of how Walmart data is being utilized to dominate retail media.

In this session you will learn:

  • Hot-off-the-press finding’s from Skai’s State of Retail Media Study 2023

  • The data required for retail-intelligent advertising

  • Best practices for using Analytic Index’s powerful retail analytics to dominate retail media
