Shredding the Playbook: Forging Brands Differently

Mar 14, 2023

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

‘Disruption’ is a term so oft-used in business, it’s become meaningless. What constitutes a disruptive brand in 2023? With the playbooks on brand launch and ongoing strategy being constantly re-written, this panel aims to highlight four national brands that are doing some of the rewriting themselves.

Thrive Market, Truff, Three Wishes, and Athletic Brewing are four brands that looked at the dominant strategies in business and completely wiped them off the table. This panel aims to give a deep dive into how brands are innovating not only as consumer products but in business strategy itself.
