With a background in on- and offline communication, marketing and facilitating trainings in personal leadership, Malou brings aliveness and a lot of energy on stage to make this International Congress a success. She will be the host of the day.

Digital marketing has been happily disrupting traditional media channels for decades now increasing its share of marketing budgets on the way. However with growing concerns about trust and transparency and significant regulatory challenges which go to the heart of the operating models of Big Tech over the use of personal data, we will reach a point in 2025 where digital itself is about to get disrupted. The accepted norms of marketing will be challenged in this post-cookie world and the opportunity for a resurgence in doordrop spend is already being witnessed. In this session you will learn about the early adopters of doordrops as new media most of them coming from a digital first background.

Can you remember when you used to sit at the breakfast table and there was a big jar of peanut butter on the table? To make the peanut butter sandwich a little tastier, your sister put sprinkles on it, your father smeared sambal on top and your mother made it a real party with slices of banana.
Chiel and his team make the tastiest peanut butter in the Netherlands, in 10 different flavors. They put peanut butter on the pedestal it deserves! After all, peanut butter is not only very tasty and healthy. The peanut plant returns nitrogen to the soil making it richer.
In this presentation you will get to hear our 3 success factors through examples and anecdotes from different periods of the business; starting, surviving and thriving.
The journey starts small; the story literally started at the kitchen table with the plan to make the tastiest peanut butter in the Netherlands. Peanut butter in different flavors did not yet exist, so they started experimenting sitting at the kitchen table.  Besides the different flavors, they have already done a lot of fun things at De Pindakaaswinkel such as National Peanut Butter Day and made the first peanut butter from Dutch soil. Thanks in part to the approachable tone of voice and the likeable product, they have more than 36,000 loyal followers on Instagram.
Now, 7 years after the foundation, about 15,000 pots a week roll out of their own factory and the company is flourishing. The guys at The Peanut Butter Shop are happily moving forward and the business continues to grow. They have chosen not to sell their peanut butter through supermarkets.
As a result, they now have 12 stores of their own, over 800 outlets and an online web shop. The peanut butter is produced energy-neutral through the use of solar panels on the roof of their maker in Aalsmeer and people with a distance to the labor market are welcomed with open arms.
How to go and stay thriving is the last part. Chiel takes you into the future and what two things are essential for this. For The Peanut Butter Shop, the main theme is growth! Therein the focus remains on peanut butter and primarily in the Netherlands, big opportunities we see is the market of hotels and corporate canteens. And also abroad, we get a lot of requests from Norway to Dubai to start selling our product.

If something has changed in our profession in recent years, it is the rise of new technologies such as Data Science, Marketing Technology and AI. And without making it a very technical story, Michael Petit from research agency Markteffect takes you along how these new technologies lead to super effective communication with your (potential) customers.
Because what if you know exactly which message you have to fire on which target group, for the highest possible ROI with the help of statistics, data and AI? Or can you discover new target groups based on statistics? Exactly, then your marketing campaigns will become really sharp. Be inspired about how you can latterly catch your shoppers, with the help of market research, and then never let them go by using the right tools. A very relevant session for everyone who wants to understand where the market is going, but does not feel like a technical story.

During the last year, Spotta has digitalized their business model through its sustainable platform ‘InMijnBus:’ a registration platform where households can submit their YES or NO preference to receive a Spotta leaflet package. InMijnBus offers households the opportunity to opt for the leaflet package that has been specifically put together for their neighbourhood or a personally chosen leaflet package. By introducing InMijnBus to the general public. Spotta aims to make leaflet distribution smarter and more sustainable. Spotta is therefore switching from unsolicited unaddressed print distribution, to desirable addressed leaflet packages assembled for individual neighbourhoods or self-composed leaflet packages by households.
