State of Data: How prepared is the Industry for the Loss of Third-Party Cookies and Other Identifiers?

IAB recently issued an industry-wide wake-up call for the digital marketing sector to roll-up its sleeves and prepare for the loss of ad tracking, targeting, and potential revenue as third-party cookies and other identifiers go away. As part of its “State of Data” research initiative, the organization found an alarming disconnect between those that believe they are prepared for the change, and concerns they have for future limitations when executing tasks essential to conducting business. Hear from Orchid Richardson, svp of IAB Programmatic+Data Center, as she discusses IAB’s latest findings.

Household ID: The Cookieless Approach Marketers Need Right Now

With changes in privacy regulations and consumer behavior, particularly CTV’s rise in
popularity, there is a movement away from targeting individual consumers, and toward
targeting and measurement at the household level. The household is a powerful clustered
unit that drives the majority of purchase decisions and anchors brand affinity. Brian Bell,
senior vice president, will break down why the Viant Household ID is one of the most
scalable and sustainable currencies and identifier for the cookieless present and the
cookieless future.

What Happened to In-Housing?

Three years ago, brands took a huge risk in beginning to bring a lot of advertising solutions in-house, but what happened?

When brands need to turn back to agency partners, is this the end of in-housing? In this session hear from James Bourner, vp, media & partnerships at Jellyfish, and how his brand relationships have changed.

Predictive Solutions: Go Beyond Identity

One solution won’t be enough to fill the gap that ATT (App Tracking Transparency on iOS) and the demise of the third-party cookies are leaving in their wake. Not only will you need an addressability solution that operates with or without matched User IDs, but that also optimizes the use of IDs vs. Contextual and Cohorts in real time. Adaptive tracking, including dynamic allocation of targetable audiences and comprehensive addressability management, will be the new normal to stay competitive. René Plug, CBDO at 1plusX, and Christopher Reher, director data strategy & products at Media Impact GmbH & Co. KG discuss the most important questions you need to be asking your teams when it comes to a future beyond identity.

Creative Experimentation at Scale

For decades, marketers struggled to reconcile creative impulse with the rapidly expanding universe of technology toolsets and capabilities. The results have been binary – you either end up with the equivalent of computer generated art…or a creative-led process where data and insights are retrofit to support the outcome. Creating a space where these two mindsets can merge seemed relatively unattainable, until now.  In this session learn from Natasha Potashnik, svp of data science & media optimization on how to algorithmically and dynamically optimize creative weighting at scale and understand the importance of testing creative to achieve optimal results for your clients.

Identity Crisis or Opportunity?: The Road To Building Privacy-First Digital Identities – A Fireside Chat With Horizon Media
Through the years, the scope of behavioral targeting on the largest mobile platforms has been converging towards increased consumer privacy and consumer control. The recent platform changes introduced by Apple restrict the use of IDFA-based behavioral targeting unless a user has explicitly provided consent through an opt-in. Google is likely to follow a similar approach for Android, very soon. So how does this impact advertisers?

The need for a future-proof solution for brands is here already. While there are multiple solutions that are presented in the market today, its adoption comes with multiple challenges. We deep dive into the evolving identity landscape and the ideal trajectory for brands.

Eliminating Bias in Programmatic

While our industry has placed greater emphasis around investing in and supporting minority-owned, operated and targeted media companies, our advertising ecosystem is in need of a sustainable infrastructure chain – one that removes legacy barriers to equitable financial opportunity and fair representation of underserved and ethnically diverse suppliers. Brands who have the right tools, information, partners and technology to understand how best to align marketer values with the audiences they need to serve will win. In this session, hear from Jennifer Garcia, multicultural data and science lead at Publicis Media Cultural Quotient explore implicit bias that lives within the programmatic ecosystem and provide some best practices to ensure all stakeholders are accountable to ensuring the right media vendors are considered and not eliminated.

Powering Performance with Contextual Targeting

As our industry collectively moves toward a digital world with data privacy regulations and a deprecation of cookies, marketers have revitalized their interest in today’s contextual targeting in order to reach relevant audiences. Not only has contextual targeting advanced beyond keywords over the past decade, a recent DV survey showed that 67% of consumers are open to viewing relevant ads from new brands. In this session, DV’s svp, programmatic sales, Steve Mougis, will host a fireside chat with Sarah Koch, vp group director, precision at GroupeConnect to discuss how innovations in contextual targeting and ontology have brought about new opportunities for advertisers to reach consumers in a cookieless world. Together, the two will also highlight key findings that bring to light the importance of aligning brand messaging with relevant content in order to drive campaign performance.

Leveraging Virtual Entertainment in a Hybrid Environment

As live entertainment begins to return, brands have the opportunity to leverage virtual entertainment in a hybrid environment to interact with consumers. New technology will continue to push the boundaries for virtual experiences and provide interactions that live entertainment cannot. A hybrid event model will continue to evolve and close the gap between the experiences that physical and virtual audiences have. In this session, hear from Jeremy Holley, co-founder of FlyteVu, an entertainment marketing agency that connects brands to consumers via the power of pop culture and purpose.

The Key to Contextual Relevancy

In recent years, tech giants have committed to a series of changes in a bid to tighten user privacy. They present advertisers with a conundrum and force a move away from their perfect science. While most are unprepared, this cookieless future presents an opportunity for marketers to be more intentional — and less creepy— with their advertising. With clicks, views and visits in the rearview mirror, can “contextual advertising” be an answer? And how can we get more granular and creative than merely placing ads for running shoes on a news article about running? And, as the rate of vaccines continues to improve, how are buyers thinking about contextual targeting, particularly with the industry’s increasing emphasis on data? Join us as Ryan Kelly, Wavemaker’s programmatic practice lead shares insights.
