Next Generation Advertising: Insight into consumer preferences across generations, presented by Deloitte

No one can argue that digitization is having a profound impact on the media and entertainment industry and the advertising business model in particular. But how much do we really know about what consumers want or what influences their behaviors? In this webinar, Ed Moran, Director of Product Innovation at Deloitte will discuss findings from Deloitte’s third State of the Media Democracy Survey, which yields valuable insights for any company that seeks to better understand how its customers, across different generations,  interact with information, advertising and emerging technologies.
