2023 Gartner Marketing Symposium/Xpo™ Theme: Prepare for Marketing’s New Directive

In today’s unpredictable environment, marketing leaders’ growth strategies face massive pressure. It’s no longer enough to increase agility or do more with less.

Now is the time for relentless prioritization. At the Gartner Marketing Symposium/Xpo™, CMOs and marketing leaders will learn how to prove their value, navigate emerging digital best practices and unlock the value of data.

Gartner Marketing Symposium/Xpo™ Keynote Speakers

The Gartner Opening Keynote, “Marketing’s New Directive: Resist the Tyranny of More,” will be presented by Gartner analysts Carlos Guerrero and Lizzy Foo Kune. It will focus on how marketing leaders, despite real constraints, continue to be stuck in a “cycle of more” that involves technology investments, expanding operational remits and an unrealistic focus on customer obsession, leaving attendees with information on what to do less; how to do better with customer engagement; and the evolution of the marketing function itself.

Guest Keynote Speakers include:

  • Disability & Innovation with Haben Girma, Disability Rights Lawyer and Author
  • Plugging into Your Potential with J.R. Martinez, Veteran, Actor, Best-selling Author, Keynote Speaker
  • Sekou Andrews, Award-winning Poetic Voice, Entrepreneur, and Two-time National Poetry Slam Champion
