The modern media agencies

It’s been a tough year for media agencies: They’re finding new competition coming from all corners, from consultancies entering the business and offering a one-stop solution for clients, to clients that are seeking to take back control of their media buying and doing more of it in house.

At the Digiday Media Buying Summit, we’ll discuss the makings of a modern media agency built for a new era. We’ll cover everything from how consultancies are approaching the industry, to hiring the right talent for a smarter media buying strategy, to new technologies from artificial intelligence to blockchain that will transform the industry over the next decade. We’ll also lay out the future of retail media and the continuing backlash against Google and Facebook’s giant power in the industry.

The speaker list was well curated and content was thoughtful in providing different perspectives - from agency, client side to vendor/partnerships.

Digiday events do a good job of highlighting the fact that there are a lot of great people doing even better work within the industry. While a lot of the time is spent discussing challenges, it's a fantastic forum for those looking to find a mean to solve them.

The summit was a great mix of attendees and topics. The size of the event allowed for enough varied perspectives, while still feeling intimate. Really enjoyed the fact that the speakers weren't just spewing best practices, but all had strong POVs on where our industry is heading.
