Ease into Monday with some playtime and pierogis! During this session, we’ll explore voice as the new playground for brands and live demo voice apps that make life easier and entertaining. The demos will showcase Google Home voice apps by local developer, Chad Gilhoi, including National Day Update (NDU). We’ll give relevant examples of how people who own voice-activated speakers welcome brands as part of the experience and how open they are to receiving information that is helpful or relevant to their lifestyle.

Brands that integrate voice will be ahead of the curve as voice becomes a growing and eventually primary source for how people discover products and services. Megan Junius, Peter Hill Design and Jen Gilhoi, SparkTrack Consulting, designers and social media consultant for the NDU brand, will demo how brands can use voice to reach new consumers and capitalize on the transactional power while maintaining brand consistency and providing something meaningful that’s true to their brand.

After the session, use your Natty (a national day deal) and pick up a pierogi from Natasha’s Pierogis food truck to celebrate October 8th National Pierogi Day!
