Major Brands at NFT.London 2022
The Brands Track was one of the most well attended throughout NFT.NYC 2022 in June — NFT.London was no different, with more than 20 major brands speaking about how NFTs are creating engagement in their industries.
Brand representatives spoke across multiple NFT Tracks, including Art, Investing, Collectibles, Music, Film, Fashion, and Ticketing.
Some of the key topics discussed include:
- CRM & Data
- Token Gating
- Reward Programs
- Community Engagement
- Brand Event Activations
Brands are turning their heads to this technology due to the remarkable impact that NFTs can have to enhance traditional marketing campaigns and online strategy.
The importance of educating brands and bringing the community together to build NFT campaigns with brands for the long term to bring new mainstream users into this space was underscored in the final round of approved speakers.
