On the occasion of his visit to Italy, Philip Kotler, the creator of modern marketing, reveals how to address emerging issues in marketing management in a new era driven by digital transformation and a new vision of business sustainability.

Hypercompetition and digital transformation have revolutionized the way companies have to think about their business.The competition is no longer with companies in the same industry but with all those competitors who can attract the customer through new digital offers.

His profound analysis of the changes in society, the new macroeconomic system, and new business strategies and techniques has reached its climax in a new marketing concept.
