What is brand belonging and why should brands care?

In today’s hyper-connected era, studies show that consumers are feeling more disconnected than ever before. With online networks replacing real-world relationships, political polarization at an all-time high and a collapse of trust in large institutions a “belonging deficit” has grown nationwide and companies are responding.

This panel will explore how brands can fill that belonging deficit and build brand belonging through experiences, products and services that address the growing cultural need for connection, community and purpose. The panel will also discuss preliminary findings from a Trusted Media Brands survey on advertisers' and marketers' attitudes on brand belonging.
