Education Panel
GORE BALLROOM | GRAND HYATT VAIL
Hosted by Adaptive Spirit and Media+Tech Collective
 
Tech Dependent Generation: Adapt and Leverage
The Z generation is on its way to become the largest force of consumers worldwide. Brands and technology looking for a piece of this action need to understand their tendencies and digital expectations. Born between 1997 and 2012, Gen Zers have been pushed into a small-screen-in-small-chunks consumer box which has proved not to be completely accurate. The Z Generation is more diverse and inclusive than previous generations. It seeks authenticity and is on track to be the best educated generation. And, unsurprisingly, technology plays a central and natural role in their lives. Most importantly, the panel will focus on how media and technology industries must rethink delivering value, balancing mass production against personalization and practicing what they preach.
