Leading Social Marketing Strategist, Keynote Speaker, & Brand Evangelist
In a connection economy, relationships are the new currency. If you want to continue to reach your target customers in this hyper-competitive age of social media, your marketing needs to focus on building relationships. Your metrics need to expand beyond ROI to include ROR. While ROI is simple dollars and cents, ROR is about people… including the value (both perceived and real) that will accrue over time through connection, loyalty, recommendations and sharing. Join Ted Rubin, author of Return on Relationship, to discover new ways to build greater intimacy with your customers, your audience, your fans and even your detractors— and how to “look them in the eyes digitally” and increase trust, loyalty and advocacy.

The best run conference ever! Everything stayed right on schedule. Presentations were relevant and informative, and short yet rich in content.
The Kroger Co.
If I could only attend one conference per year, CRMC would be my pick! No other conference puts this caliber of CRM professionals all in one place. The networking and sharing of ideas is invaluable.
This was another great CRMC. As always, I enjoy how willing the presenters are to share their case studies so that we can learn not only from their successes, but also any challenges they ran into along the way. It’s a wonderful learning experience with such open dialog on what we can do to become better marketers.
Dick’s Sporting Goods
The quality of the speakers was outstanding and very relevant. Seeing the future of the customer and how to maintain and build relevancy was very timely and exciting for me. Great conference.
I love the real-life case studies that give me a to-do list when I get back to real life. Also enjoyed the great networking and quality attendees.
My first visit and a great experience. Subject matter was 100% relevant to my needs and offered quality content, conversations, and access to real experience.
Advance Auto Parts
Thank you for an INCREDIBLE show. I have been to many this year (at least 8) and CRMC was intimate, focused on education and networking, inspirational, and had a spot-on retailer/vendor ratio.
Outstanding. I not only received validation of what I am doing, but also educated on where I can make improvements.

This is my tenth year. I will never miss this conference! CRMC is an ideal conference for networking with industry leaders in a relaxed and inviting setting.
CRMC brings together the best minds in CRM from Retail, Manufacturer and Solution Providers.
I thoroughly enjoyed networking with other retailers, learning about new solutions, and meeting with vendors about their ideas. The dinners and receptions were great and allowed participants to connect in a more informal way.
Abercrombie & Fitch
The sessions and discussions were 100% engaging and filled with important and relevant content. We have yet to get such a full-bodied take from some of the world’s greatest retail companies, consultants, and technology and service providers on the marketing side all in one place.
