Creative Tech professionals to unite at ‘All-out Phygital’ edition of SPICY talks ‘22 – Forrester headlines two-day event hosted by CHILI publish

On November 22-23, 2022, this Brussels-based user event will immerse agencies and brands in creative automation presentations, use cases, and training sessions to educate attendees on how to scale on-brand graphic production for online and offline channels.

Chicago, Aalst (USA, Belgium), September 22, 2022 – CHILI publish, the Creative Automation software market leader, announces SPICY talks ’22, the ‘All-out Phygital’ edition of the ultimate Creative Tech community gathering. This interactive event brings creative professionals together to master the skills, trends, and technology needed to solve real-world graphic production challenges. With keynote speakers like Jay Pattisall (Forrester), Dave Birss (Creative Industry Speaker), and Florian Payri (Aristid Retail Technology for Intermarché), this year’s SPICY talks will focus on helping brands and agencies combine physical in-store or on-site experiences with data-driven digital funnels to create an exceptional “All-out Phygital” customer journey. Driven by global Creative Automation expert CHILI publish, with the support of Martech solution partners and sponsors, SPICY talks ‘22 takes place 22 and 23 November at The EGG in Brussels, Belgium.

Introducing the new “creative+tech” collaboration platform

“The struggle is familiar to brands and agencies alike: be more productive, adaptive, and scalable,” says Kevin Goeminne, CEO at CHILI publish. “We are excited to host Jay Pattisall at the event to deliver insights on how Intelligent Automation will propel the velocity of content production by 2023. At SPICY talks 2022, we will demonstrate how Creative Automation technology plays a major role to propel the velocity of graphic production at scale for both online and offline purposes. As retailers and consumer brands rely heavily on reaching customers at the point of purchase, creative automation is at the forefront of solving and delivering on the challenge. Use cases from brands like Intermarche, Mercedes, and Peri will demonstrate how Creative Tech saves everyone time, money, and talent resources throughout the process.”

At SPICY talks ’22, CHILI publish CTO (Chief Technology Officer), Ward De Langhe, will present the new solution suite that will allow brands and agencies alike to easily create, edit, and manage Smart Templates in an integrated platform that works with a vast ecosystem of partner solutions. De Langhe comments: “Multivariant campaign iterations are the biggest hurdle everywhere, so we created one platform that facilitates a “creative+tech” workflow for both digital and print output. By giving everyone access to branded content, it eliminates creative silos, so pretty much everyone on the team can generate repurposed content output in a heartbeat. Our team built one of the most comprehensive, integrated, and agile graphic production platforms in the market and I’m excited to demo it for the first time at SPICY talks.”
