Technology Matters
Reaching Audiences Today (and Tomorrow)

New technologies have made reaching the right audiences, at the right time and place, at great scale and speed, a reality. This has extended the possibility of true addressability to the multi-screen universe—including mobile and connected TV—creating enormous opportunity for the entire marketing and media ecosystem. Advertisers can better identify their customers, publishers can better monetize and sell their inventory, while consumers receive content and offers with true relevance. In this presentation Konrad Feldman addresses the present and future of reaching the untethered consumer by showing how the back-end inner workings of RTB and targeting result in a new front-end approach to advertising.

Connecting the Whole Web Across Screens

Have you ever had the serendipitous luck of running into a “flash mob”—or seen a video of one on YouTube? You can thank the mobile and social technologies that allow us all to connect, create, and organize our lives and our communications across millions of screens both big and small. This session encourages the marketing world to think of mobile and social technologies as a dual force of anything-and-anywhere communications, a strategic approach that helps both consumers and marketers bridge the gap between online and offline, reaching one another at precisely the most relevant moment.

Rubicon Project
Room: Workshop(1)

Private Marketplaces Done Right

In a market where trades happen in real time, sellers must decide who has access to their inventory and at what price. At the same time, buyers are exposed to deeper levels of insight and must develop new ways to identify and purchase valuable inventory. Today, while private marketplaces begin to play a role in this transformation, publishers continue to face obstacles in leveraging this new revenue channel. Learn how the Rubicon Project is simplifying the creation of private marketplaces and creating workflow efficiency by automating the entire process for buyers and sellers.

Simultaneous Screen Usage

Data on What Viewers Do and Why

What consumers now do with devices and content changes the way we envision audiences and the future of programming. In this session IAB and IPSOS MediaCT unveil a new study that explores different types of simultaneous viewing and key drivers of those behaviors. Do users surf unrelated sites with the TV on as background or are they actively involved with TV content and seeking out related info online? Do certain genres of TV shows inspire viewers to seek out online content and commentary around the show and do others encourage unrelated surfing? Data-driven insights and real-world consumer feedback answer these questions and more.

Content Matters
No Place for Ads
?
Social Advertising and Branded Content

On the social web there is no place for ads—only content and sharing. Increasingly users are accustomed to consuming and sharing a blend of the personal, funny, and serious, all in an intermingled feed. Brands can succeed on the social web by developing “content gifts” for audiences and measuring the social lift that comes from harnessing the network effects of SuperSharers on major social platforms. Through a mix of data, case studies, and anecdotes, Jon Steinberg, President, and Andy Wieldin, Chief Revenue Office, both of BuzzFeed, discuss the origins and future of social advertising.

Slates Political Gabfest

Featuring Slate’s Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz, the Political Gabfest aims to recreate the kind of informal and irreverent discussions Washington journalists have after hours over drinks. Tailored for the IAB audience, this LIVE version of the hugely popular podcast is focused on how the 2012 election cycle is being impacted by the multiscreen media-verse. If digital channels put politicos in the same boat as marketers facing challenges around reach, engagement and attribution then what can we learn from one another?

Extreme Reach
Room: Workshop(1)

Managing the Risks Involved with Talent and 3rd-Party Rights in Online Video Advertising

Many online video ads are also run on television, but typically, the production and business affairs details are handled by those involved on the TV side. By unifying TV and online video business affairs, particularly talent contract terms and 3rd-party rights, advertisers can bring control, efficiencies, and opportunities to online advertising. This workshop outlines several of the nuances involved in talent and 3rd-party rights agreements, how they can adversely affect online campaigns and how to proactively avoid issues that can be expensive and restrictive when it comes to campaign execution and results.

Swapping the USP for POV

Why Point of-View Is Everything Now and Why Marketers Need To Get More of It

Mass media and a TV-dominated advertising industry created the modern marketing communications strategy of 1) distill the product difference 2) communicate it quickly and 3) repeat. Content marketing and the social ecosystem is changing how we need to think about our briefs, our strategies, and our marketing organizations holistically. Troy Young breaks down why our needs are different now, which brands have embraced the change effectively, and how we should be thinking in a world where point of view is everything.
