The third annual “Social & Innovation Marketing Lab” Workshop will be held on-site at TBS Education on June 24, 2024. The workshop’s theme is “New Frontiers in Social and Innovation Marketing.” 

In the rapidly evolving domain of modern marketing, we find ourselves at the confluence of groundbreaking technological advancements and a renewed commitment to societal welfare. The emergence of the metaverse and artificial intelligence represents a paradigm shift in innovation management, offering unparalleled opportunities for creating deeply immersive and intelligently personalized consumer experiences. Concurrently, the imperative to address key social issues through marketing—exemplified by initiatives in blood donation management and the promotion of cultural industries—demonstrates the critical role of social marketing in fostering community well-being and supporting vital causes. This dual focus encapsulates the vibrant and multifaceted nature of contemporary marketing practices, where the integration of cutting-edge technology and social responsibility paves the way for meaningful engagement and lasting impact.
