This panel will address the myriad ways in which media investment practices are being upended, reinvented and reinvigorated. Programmatic buying and selling is stretching to move beyond digital channels, and this may well be the “year of addressable video” through both digital and broadcast platforms. Publishing content continues to push the boundaries well beyond the page, and branded content “goes native”. One thing is certain – the manner in which we have planned, placed and tracked media investments is changing.

Some of today’s most exciting change agents share their playbooks on how brands are embracing, experimenting and leveraging new technologies to create experiences with consumers that are leading not only to increased sales but to interesting new product innovations. We will take a look at what inspires the choice of a particular technology, how brands are telling their stories through these news tools and methods, and how meaningful relationships are secured and developed. Most importantly, they will reveal how the brand, media, and agencies are working together to achieve marketplace success.
