By 2020 over 50% of search is expected to come from voice and images, and we’re already seeing a shift in consumer behavior with the massive  global growth and adoption of digital assistants and intelligent agents. The emphasis is moving from typing in queries into the search box to speaking to a digital assistant in a more natural and conversational manner. The rise of intelligent agents is also shifting how consumers are searching for information and discovering brands, products and services. Marketers need to understand this and adapt their global strategy for voice search if they want their content to be visible to digital assistants. Join us for November's #SEMPOChat as we explore the opportunities and experiences that voice search creates.

Get Involved!

We encourage everyone to chime in to make a great conversation! To submit questions you can use the chat on YouTubeLive or you can chime in on twitter by tagging #SEMPOChat.
