The 302 Code

302 Code is a temporary redirect of a web page. It’s an example of a marketing practice that contradicts the standard. Convention calls for a permanent redirect.

However, today's ever-changing landscape dictates that conventional wisdom is often anything but conventional and temporary redirection is now a permanent state. 302 Code is exemplary of the need for a nimble approach to marketing and the customer experience. The ability of Marketers to react and redirect based on customer feedback via data.

This year, you’ll hear discussions that cover:

  • The Science of Creativity
  • See Her, Be Her

  • Connecting with the Consumer in an Age of Skepticism

  • Engaging Millennials
  • Data in Media
  • The Impact of Influences
  • Protecting Your Data
  • The Future of Publishing

About The 302 Code

The world has changed. But it hasn’t just changed

it’s still changing – even as you read this. And the rate of change is awe-inspiring. It took nearly 100 years from the first ever telephone call to the first mobile phone; only 20 years later, there were smartphones, and, now, 90% of Americans use their phones to access the internet. At the forefront of this incredible acceleration of change is data.

Marketers have long since seen the importance of data

and we have sought to collect, analyze and use it in ways that benefit our consumers. But, as we look at the world today, we see streams of data everywhere. Data analysis is giving us tremendous advances in medicine, small town sports teams capable of taking on the big boys, and even the secret sauce to making chart-topping hits. It has enormous potential to do endless good for us. But in the wrong hands, data can also be used for tremendous harm.

There is a need for an ongoing conversation around data and its potential

a gathering of the finest minds in the world, who work with data every day, harnessing it to advance technology, media, sports, experiences… the things we all love and need.

This conversation is being held at The 302 Code at &THEN in LA.

3:30PM – 4:00PM | A Brief History of Digital Marketing: The Revolution of Big Data

Twenty years ago, fear over issues related to privacy threatened to derail the data and digital marketing revolution when Double Click – the number one digital ad delivery company at the time – was sued by the US Government. Fast forward to today and consumers have a greater understanding of reciprocity of value: exchanging personal information to the brands they trust in order to receive relevant, targeted messages and offers that will help to better their lives. The journey to where we are now has not been a smooth one, but the evolution in digital marketing, and revolution of big data along the way, has finally sought to fulfill the promise of the internet. The 302 Code brings together some of the key revolutionaries of this brief history of our time to discuss their past battles and the exciting road ahead.

4:00PM – 4:45PM | Decoding Celebrity Influence

If the President had to reach the U.S. population with an important message, a very good argument could be made that he would do so with way more impact through leveraging the likes of Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian than talking to major media companies like Viacom or News Corp. Today, it is the individual rather than the media company that controls reach and influence. This is no more true than with today’s leading celebrities. In this entertaining panel, you will hear from talent agencies, brokers, and dealmakers on the best practices to implement cutting edge analytics to generate instant and targeted reach and impact.
