Banks will address what it’s like to be in the top marketing seat for one of the most storied of football franchises. How does the Las Vegas Raiders build new generations of enthusiasts as well as nurture decades-long loyal Raider Nation fans? Casino operators will gain insights on sports partnerships and opportunities in this growing landscape at Raving’s annual conference this July.

“Trying to capture consumer attention is harder than ever,” Kristen shares. “From a very avid fan to a casual fan, we shouldn’t be talking to them in the same manner.”

Customization, segmentation, and delivering a personal experience are key. “It’s about these incredible fans,” she continues. “How do you create a fan for life and keep them coming back?”

Deana Scott, Raving CEO adds, “There’s a lot of amazing and innovative marketing coming out of professional sports teams to drive loyalty. There’s also so many synergies between casinos and organizations like the Raiders. Through partnerships with casinos, the fan experience has grown. This will be such an informative session for general managers, marketers and those who work in player development.”

Banks will share her journey during her first year leading the Raiders marketing team relying on her passion for data-driven initiatives.
