After 14 years with the largest OOH vendor and top national sales billings in the company of $30 million, he resigned to fulfill his entrepreneurial spirit. Matera co- founded OOH Pitch Inc., a new out-of-home/non-traditional media buying and planning group, in April 2001. OOH Pitch has clients such as T-Mobile, Pepsi, MINI Copper, Sanofi and many more.

Keynote Lunch: "Brands, Brains and Buying - Creating "Chatter That Matters" in an Age of Digital Distraction" - David Kepron
12:30pm - 1:45pm
Far from the days when we made daily trips to the market, we now live in a culture where shopping is omnipresent and easily done from the palm of our hand. Everyone is a customer, and around every turn is yet another array of information sources crowding our visual experience. Digital technology has afforded us the ease of connecting with a global economy and begun to change the way brands deliver on a key feature of all great shopping experiences — telling stories. While we can argue about whether we are communicating more but actually 'connecting' less, social media networks are replacing the embodied experience of being face-to-face in a playful ritual that established context and created an understanding of who we are in the world. We are more than ever in a digital world that messages 'choice' beyond our brain's ability to effectively process it all. More choice is not better but often simply more confusing. All shopping experiences, be they in-store, in-home or in-your-hand, involve not only the exchange of goods and services but also the creation of relationships — among the brand, the products they 'sell' and the customer.
This talk will delve into understanding how recent discoveries in neuroscience, the changing communication of brand stories through social media and emerging digital technologies will influence the way brands connect to their customers — both in and out of shopping places. Furthermore, it will describe why certain digital applications are better than others in attracting customer attention, and how the path to purchase can be enhanced with digital technology that serves to enhance the relationship rather than offering more choice in an age of digital distraction.
In this session, you will…
1. Gain an understanding of the historical development of shopping as a social paradigm that fosters empathic relationship, meaning and context through storytelling and play
2. Discover the differences between left- and right-brain processing modalities and how brain physiology — such as mirror neurons and dopamine — plays into motivation and decision making
3. Gain insight into the challenges and opportunities to use digital technology, both hand-held and place-based, to provide "chatter-that-matters" to a fickle customer culture for which communication streams are measured in 140 characters and 'emoticons'
streams are measured in 140 characters and 'emoticons'.
As a retail design, merchandising and brand consultant, David Kepron draws on more than 20 years of experience in the retail industry. His experience as an architect, artist and educator provides a broad view of what great shopping experiences are made of. According to Kepron, shopping environments are more than just ‘spaces’ to carry out a transaction, they are ‘the in between places’ that bring together customers and brands; satisfying needs, building on aspirations and promoting relationships through fostering empathic relationships.
Kepron's success at designing retail concepts comes from a blend of art and architecture, psychology and neuroscience, marketing, brand development and advertising, and training retailers on the principles of effective visual merchandising. According to Kepron, the customer is the most important part of the production line and the primary function of all retail design is about ‘selling’ by weaving the customer’s innate physical and emotional responses to the environment with the brand story.
His portfolio includes projects ranging from high-end fashion luxury name brands to off-price mass merchants, and from fully interactive high-tech, bricks and clicks to independent mom-and-pop retailers. His clients have included ILORI, Perry Ellis, Toys ‘R Us, Lacoste, Polo Jeans Co., Godiva Chocolatier, Levi’s, Calvin Klein, Nautica, Ralph Lauren, Lane Bryant, Capital One Bank, Darden Restaurants, Aramark, L’Occitane and Kohl’s.
Kepron has held roles as an adjunct professor for the MS Interior Design Program at the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design, the Department of Architecture & Interior Design of Drexel University in Philadelphia, the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising (L.I.M.) in New York and the International Academy of Merchandising and Design in Montreal. He has also served as the director of the Visual Merchandising Department at LaSalle International Fashion School (L.I.F.S.) in Singapore. Kepron presently teaches a retail design studio at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.).
David Kepron has been recognized by his peers as an industry leader by being listed in Display and Design Ideas Magazine’s "40 Under 40" and "30 of the Industry’s Most Influential People." He is currently a member of VM+SD magazine’s editorial advisory board and the Association for Retail Environments (A.R.E.) Dream Team. He also serves as an emeritus member of the board of directors of The Planning and Visual Education Partnership (P.A.V.E.).
Kepron earned his B.S. in architecture and Bachelors of Architecture degrees from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), The Retail Design Institute (RDI) and an LEED Accredited Professional (LEED® BD+C).
