You’re on the plane from Zurich to New York. Like you, the person in the next seat is trying to make themselves as comfortable as possible while munching on an identical breakfast roll.

The aim is to win customers wherever they are with a personal approach, promotional discounts and relevant advertising that enables them to find the right products and purchase using mobile payment methods.

Bank customers are increasingly emancipated and want to research products themselves; insurance customers are more independent, more interested in dialogue and increasingly sensitive to price.
On June 25 and 26 2014 the AEM developer conference CONNECT Web Experience (formerly known as CQCON) takes place at Stadtcasino Basel.
