WASHINGTON, D.C. -- NAB Show, the world’s largest annual conference and expo for professionals who create, manage, and distribute entertainment across all platforms, will feature extensive conference programing and exhibits on the latest trends in multiplatform content monetization, including advances in advertising technology, developments in media measurement techniques and best practices for both traditional and digital advertising. The convention takes place April 11 – 16 in Las Vegas.
On Wednesday, April 15, NAB Show will host the Super Session “Achieving Advertising Agility,” produced in partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), which will focus on how companies can achieve advertising agility at a time of peak innovation in this space. The session, moderated by PwC's marketing transformation practice lead John Swadener, will address the convergence of marketing and advertising technologies and how this is driving demand for new roles such as “Data Scientists” – who are gaining influence in organizations.
Also, the Broadcast Management Conference will feature several sessions on monetizing content and audience measurement: “Ask the Expert – Programmatic Monetization,” “On-Air + Online Audience Metrics” for radio, “Maximizing Mobile,” and the workshop “Driving Your Business With Data: Google Analytics for Audience and Advertiser Growth,” among others.
Opportunities in online advertising will be addressed in the sessions “Beyond Impressions: Online Video Advertising’s New Performance Metrics,” “How to Leverage Online Video’s New Influencers for Winning Brand Extensions,” and “Case Study: Monetizing Video in a Cross-Screen World” – all of which take place on Wednesday, April 15 during the Online Video Conference, which focuses on key issues facing original content providers seeking to monetize video in today’s multiplatform environment.
“With the dramatic shifts that are occurring in the media industry, advertising models are being challenged and revolutionized,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president, Conventions and Business Operations. “Whether it be native, programmatic, or some yet-to-be-defined new approach, technology and new consumer habits are driving important developments in the revenue side of the business. It is more critical than ever that events like NAB Show shine a spotlight on these trends.”
The Broadcast Engineering Conference will feature sessions on leveraging ad-insertion technologies and methods to increase revenue, with “Ad Insertion for Multi-Platform Delivery” and “Cross-platform Ad-insertion Using HbbTV and MPEG-DASH” on Wednesday, April 15.
