Yext on Tour Recap: Atlanta

AI, voice search, and digital assistants are fundamentally changing the way consumers interact with businesses. This is the crux of search today. At Yext on Tour 2017, we’re heading to cities around the world to explore how the digital knowledge about your business’s people, places, and products can provide a strong foundation for your brand and help you be a leader in the age of intelligent services.

We kicked off our series of events last week in Atlanta, where we welcomed search leaders and marketing experts such as Captain D’s Bob Kraut, Microsoft’s Christi Olson, Resolution Media’s Jeff Campbell, Arby’s Sonja Uppal, and Vivial’s Todd Renard, who discussed the intelligent future and what brands can expect to see as search gets smarter.
