The Forum brings together industry leaders to explore new business strategies and new product development and acts as a platform to connect marketing strategy with research and development, keys to the success of any brand.
McGinnes will address this elite group of industry leaders and key decision makers from the world's leading F and B brand owners on how the rapid adoption of 3D printing technology -- the ability to instantly produce personalized products to our own tastes and specifications, instantly at home, work or on the go -- will revolutionize the way we shop, eat, drink and live our lives.
Additionally, he will outline the challenges and opportunities this seismic shift presents to brands -- and offer ideas to get ahead of the change and to ride the 3D wave.
"I am honored to take part in FBIF2014 and look forward to sharing actionable branding solutions to help drive brand performance. Brands that evolve will survive and thrive in this new world of 3D printing technology," commented McGinnes. "Brand performance is an approach to brands and branding that recognizes the relationship between brands and business. Brands that perform inspire trial, loyalty, advocacy and repeat purchase. Brands perform because they're desirable."

His insights have been presented to The United Nations, The Global Union and Primetime, in addition to consulting numerous global MNCs and FTSE 500 companies.
