Understanding What You're
Buying in CTV

Tuesday, June 21 | 11:00 AM CEST

IAS Tatiana Yacht

Advertisers know that their media dollars have the power to revolutionize outcomes for a brand – but are they always cognizant of where that money is going? When it comes to CTV, advertisers are actively looking for solutions to overcome the lack of transparency in this premium environment. CTV has proven to offer marketers the vast reach needed to reach consumers, but how can the industry help advertisers ensure media quality and prove business outcomes?

Join IAS, Publica, and other industry experts as we dive into the reasons why advertisers need to understand exactly where their ad spend is going – especially on one of the fastest-growing digital environments.

Contextual Advertising Emerging: Now Key in Driving Performance

Tuesday, June 21 | 4:30 PM CEST

Beet.TV Villa

As the advertising industry advances beyond third-party cookies, contextual relevance is revolutionizing digital strategies. While context-based buying methods offer a multitude of marketer benefits, consumers are weighing in on context— and they’re embracing it. 

IAS research has shown that 74% of consumers like to see ads that match the content they’re viewing. What’s even more conclusive, this recent biometric study revealed over half of consumers find it disruptive when an ad is not related to the content they’re reading.

Join Tony Marlow, Chief Marketing Officer at IAS, and leaders from the buy and sell sides as they share insights and strategies on best uses of contextual advertising to maximize consumer engagement.

The Future of Targeting

Wednesday, June 22 | 11:30 AM CEST

Martinez Hotel

The industry has been mourning the death of the cookie for years. So why are we still clinging to the digital targeting tech? As brands look for better ways to spend their marketing dollars more effectively—and target with precision and scale—leading-edge marketers are tapping into AI and predictive technology. They know exactly where their ads are going and who they’re reaching.

Join Ad Age Editor-in-Chief Dan Peres, IAS Chief Marketing Officer Tony Marlow, and industry executives for a wide-ranging discussion on life after the cookie and how you can better reach the right audience in the right context.

Back to News: Reinvesting in News Media to Build a Healthier Information Ecosystem

Wednesday, June 22 | 1:00 PM CEST

Martinez Hotel

New technologies and technologies have made it possible for individuals, organizations, and governments to weaponize misinformation, splintering reality and purposely undermining social cohesion. This development has underscored the crucial need for news organizations that are capable of separating fact from fiction and recreating shared realities inclusive of diverse viewpoints.

What do brands need from news organizations in order to safely and effectively reinvest their media dollars in the production of hard news? What do news organizations need from advertisers to reinvest in hard news and fact-based reporting? Join GroupM’s panel with guest speaker, Lisa Kopp Johnson from IAS, as we seek to reforge the crucial bond between news organizations and advertisers in order to provide the accurate and accessible information democracies need to function in the 21st century.
