Analysis for 'Events'

  • Sharing VideoNuze’s 2016 Events Calendar

    It’s shaping up as another incredibly exciting year for online video, and I’m delighted to share VideoNuze’s 2016 events calendar today. 2015 was a breakout year for VideoNuze’s events, with record attendance of 450+ executives at our 5th annual VideoNuze Online Video Advertising Summit in June, our inaugural SHIFT // Programmatic Video & TV Advertising Summit in December, and our first NABShow Online Video Conference in Las Vegas in April. Building on their success, all of these events will be back in 2016.

    Our flagship event in 216 will be the 6th annual VideoNuze Online Video Advertising Summit, which will be Tuesday, June 14th at the Westin New York at Times Square in NYC. With U.S. online video ad spending in 2016 approaching $10 billion according to eMarketer, and viewers’ behaviors rapidly changing, advertisers and content providers are avidly embracing online video. But online video advertising is complex and chaotic and so once again the Ad Summit will bring together 50+ industry executive speakers in a meticulously curated program that maximizes learning. Combined with top-notch networking, the Ad Summit will again be a must-attend event.

    Programmatic video & TV are expected to be a bigger part of the advertising landscape in 2016, and the 2nd annual SHIFT // 2016 (tentatively on Tuesday, December 6th in NYC) will again be the most comprehensive conference focusing on these important trends. Following on the success of the SHIFT // 2015 event, which drew 380+ attendees, SHIFT // 2016 promises in-depth sessions on all of the key drivers of programmatic video & TV. For anyone with a stake in the success of programmatic video & TV, SHIFT // 2016 will be an superior day of learning and networking.

    Finally, kicking off the year will be the 2nd annual NABShow Online Video Conference (OVC), again produced and hosted by VideoNuze. Recognizing the growing importance of online video, the 2-day OVC on April 18 and 19 in Las Vegas, will be a marquee event at NABShow. It will feature two of the show’s Super Sessions, plus a dozen other sessions focusing on all the most important industry trends such as mobile, connected TVs, online originals, SVOD, live streaming sports, branded content and much more.

    For more information about all of the events, including sponsorships and speaking, please contact me. I look forward to seeing you at VideoNuze events in 2016 and learning together.

  • Lots of Insights at Today’s SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit

    We had a jam-packed day at SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit today, with 50+ industry leaders speaking on 14 sessions. There were tons of insights shared about what programmatic does and doesn’t mean for video & TV, with more than a few speakers saying they strongly dislike the term “programmatic” even being used in this context!

    Our 2 keynotes guests, Donna Speciale, President of Turner Ad Sales, who was interviewed by Matt Prohaska, CEO and Principal of Prohaska Consulting and Lou Paskalis, SVP, Bank of America, who was interviewed by Michael Kassan, Chairman and CEO, MediaLink, totally hit it out of the park with their incisiveness and candor.

    Many thanks to all of our speakers, our 18 sponsors and the hundreds of industry colleagues who attended.

    I’ll have many more takeaways to share about SHIFT in the coming days and will also be posting all of the session videos on VideoNuze. There are also lots of tweets at #ShiftVideo2015!

  • Turner Ad Sales President Donna Speciale to Keynote Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit

    I’m excited to share that Donna Speciale, President of Turner Broadcasting Ad Sales, will be our keynote guest at the SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit on Tuesday, December 1st in NYC.

    Donna will be interviewed on the topic of “How TV Networks Can Capitalize on Programmatic.” Since TV networks have the most valuable ad inventory, programmatic represents a unique opportunity, especially as consumption of TV programs goes multi-screen. TV networks must balance programmatic innovation with the benefits of the traditional direct sales model. Turner has been aggressively building out its data capabilities to drive further value from its premium content.

    Donna’s session will be one of the highlights of a jam-packed day of sessions meant to demystify programmatic video & TV and accelerate its adoption. Over 30 industry leaders, all with direct experience with programmatic video & TV, are set to speak, representing companies including ABC, Altitude Digital, AMC Networks, Assembly, Bloomberg Digital, comScore, Havas Media, Hill Holliday, Horizon Media, Magna Global, MediaVest, Meredith, Operative, Razorfish, Roku, SpotX, The Weather Company, Viacom, Videology, VivaKi, Xaxis and others.

  • Program and Initial Speakers for SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit Now Posted

    The program and initial group of speakers for the Dec. 1st SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit in NYC are now available on the SHIFT web site. The program includes 14 sessions that cover all angles of programmatic video & TV. The goal is to help attendees understand what’s driving programmatic video & TV’s rapid growth, benefit from the insights/lessons industry leaders have with programmatic video & TV and learn about the key remaining challenges.

    Overall, SHIFT is focused on accelerating the growth and success of programmatic video & TV, to help everyone in the ecosystem. Our initial group of speakers come from leading advertisers, agencies, content providers/publishers and technology providers, including ABC, Altitude Digital, Bloomberg Digital, comScore, Havas Media, Hill Holliday, Horizon Media, MediaVest, Operative, Razorfish, Roku, SpotX, The Weather Company, Videology and Xaxis, with many others to be announced shortly.



    There’s a ton of excitement around programmatic and the big impact it’s poised to have on video and TV advertising. Just yesterday I posted on eMarketer’s new forecast that 65%, or $7.4 billion, of online video ad spending will be transacted programmatically by 2017. But to reach that point, there needs to be a much clearer understanding of programmatic’s benefits and how to implement it. My goal is for SHIFT to meaningfully contribute to all of this.

    Reminder that all early bird registrants will be entered to win a 50-inch Sharp Roku TV (value $450), generously provided by Roku. In addition, early bird registrants also save $100 off the regular rates. Further discounts are available on 5-packs and 10-packs.

I’m hugely grateful for their support of the inaugural SHIFT // 2015.

    Programmatic video & TV were a recurring theme at many of the sessions I attended at Advertising Week in NYC this week. A lot of the discussion focused on automation and data benefits. Data was a particular focus in light of all the buzz around ad-blocking and the need to make advertising more relevant so that it is more acceptable to viewers. This week Magna Global also released an updated forecast that programmatic will grow from an estimated 26% of global desktop and mobile video in 2015, to 55% by 2019.

    Keep an eye on the SHIFT // 2015 web site for more updates on the program and initial group of speakers. SHIFT // 2015 will be a premier day of learning and networking for anyone with a stake in programmatic video & TV. I hope you’ll join us on December 1st!

  • Ten Initial Sponsors for SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Advertising Summit

    Ten industry-leading companies are on board as the initial sponsors of the inaugural SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Advertising Summit on Tuesday, December 1st in NYC.

    The group includes Adobe (Title Partner); Altitude Digital, FreeWheel and Videology (Premier Partners); comScore, Levels Beyond, Ooyala, Operative and SpotX (Headline Partners) and Alphonso (Branding Partner). Each of these companies is making important contributions to the programmatic video and TV advertising ecosystem and I’m gratified that they’ve chosen to support SHIFT // 2015. There are additional charter sponsorship opportunities available; please contact me if you’d like to learn more.



    In addition to the sponsors, the program for SHIFT // 2015 is coming together well, focusing on the most important topics in programmatic video and TV advertising. As with all VideoNuze events, we’ll have experienced industry executives sharing actionable insights and data which attendees can use in their own roles. I expect to share more details about the program in the next couple of weeks.

    Programmatic video and TV are among the most important trends in the video advertising industry, with billions of dollars of spending already shifting. Going forward, eMarketer forecasts at least $4 billion, or nearly 40%, of U.S. online video ad spending will be done programmatically in 2016. And earlier this week, IHS and SpotX forecast that by 2020, 2 billion euros, or over half of all online video ad spending in Europe, will be done programmatically.

    But it’s still early days for programmatic video and TV, with a complicated ecosystem and several key challenges. That’s where SHIFT // 2015 comes in - providing a laser-focused day of learning and networking for buy-side, sell-side and technology providers to help accelerate the adoption and success of programmatic video and TV.  If your company has a stake in programmatic video and TV, then attending SHIFT // 2015 will be time well spent.

    Early bird discounted tickets are now available. I hope you’ll join us on December 1st!

  • Introducing SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Advertising Summit

    I’m excited to announce our next VideoNuze conference: SHIFT // 2015 Programmatic Video & TV Advertising Summit, which will be on Tuesday, December 1st in NYC at the Time-Life Conference Center.

    SHIFT // 2015 is an immersive new one-day conference which will bring together senior industry leaders and influencers who have a stake in the success of programmatic video & TV advertising. SHIFT // 2015 is the first conference laser-focused on programmatic video & TV advertising, which eMarketer forecasts will account for almost $4 billion, or approximately 40%, of online video ad spending in 2016, up from just $190 million in 2013.



    As VideoNuze readers know, I’ve written extensively about how video viewers are fragmenting across countless devices, services and platforms, which has in turn created unprecedented challenges for advertisers and content providers. As David Cohen, UniversalMcCann’s Chief Investment Officer said in his keynote interview with me at this past’s June’s Video Ad Summit, re-aggregating target audiences and delivering the right video ads - efficiently and at scale - have become the media industry’s top priority (last week’s market meltdown in media stocks underscored its urgency).

    This is why programmatic video & TV advertising has such huge potential - offering the ability to shift (hence the conference name!) to an automated, data-driven and flexible approach. Programmatic enables ad buyers to target and reach their audiences wherever they watch video, and content publishers to recognize the full value of their inventory.  

    Despite this potential, it is still early days for programmatic video and even earlier days for programmatic and cross-screen TV. For many industry executives, programmatic’s complex ecosystem and “alphabet soup” of participants is difficult to understand. Questions about viewability, channel conflicts, pricing integrity, measurement, attribution, etc. swirl. As a result, there’s still caution around programmatic video & TV.

    By comprehensively addressing these and other key topics, I’m confident SHIFT / 2015 will create new value for market participants. The SHIFT // 2015 program will focus on the most critical aspects of programmatic video & TV advertising, with experienced industry executives delivering actionable insights and data that help attendees to be smarter and more productive back at the office. SHIFT // 2015 will pick up on important themes raised on our programmatic sessions at the Ad Summit, which drew 450+ attendees and featured 55 speakers.

    I’ve spent a lot of time over the past couple of months talking to industry colleagues about the opportunity for SHIFT // 2015 and have been hugely gratified by the response. I’m very aware of the proliferation of conferences and believe SHIFT // 2015 is differentiated by its deep-dive focus on programmatic video & TV.

    I’ve set the bar high for SHIFT // 2015 to be a must-attend day for executives at publishers, distributors, agencies, advertisers, trading desks, networks/exchanges, technology providers/platforms, research and investment firms, journalists and anyone else seeking to learn more about programmatic video & TV and accelerate its success.

    SHIFT // 2015 is an important new initiative for VideoNuze which will build off momentum from our many prior Video Ad Summits and VideoSchmoozes. Early bird discounted tickets are now available as are discounted charter sponsorships (contact me to learn more). I’m excited to share a lot more about SHIFT // 2015 in the coming months and I welcome your input. I hope you’ll join us on December 1st!

  • Hearst's Co-President Neeraj Khemlani Shares Insights On New Video Landscape [AD SUMMIT VIDEO]

    Neeraj Khemlani, co-president of Hearst Entertainment & Syndication shared his insights on the new video landscape and how to succeed in it during his keynote interview with me at the recent Video Ad Summit. Neeraj has a great perspective on the topic given his role at Hearst and the company’s investments in video leaders like AwesomenessTV, Roku, BuzzFeed, Vice and others.

    Neeraj sees this as a time of huge experimentation, with Hearst looking to place bets on brands that will resonate with younger audiences. The key here is for talent to be authentic and build their audiences. When this happens, they’re “earning” their distribution organically, rather than trying to establish it formally as in traditional media distribution models. That’s a huge shift.

    Among other topics, Neeraj discusses “CosmoBody,” the company’s new SVOD service and why it’s ad-free, why news is a perfect fit for video and mobile, why having a strong editorial point of view is critical, how Facebook is changing video viewing and lots more.

  • UM's Chief Investment Officer David Cohen On Big Video Ad Shifts [AD SUMMIT VIDEO]

    One of the highlights of the recent Video Ad Summit was the keynote conversation with David Cohen, Chief Investment Officer at Universal McCann. David is one of the foremost digital thought-leaders in the advertising industry and oversees billions of dollars of client spending.

    In the interview with me, David shared his insights across a range of topics, including how the proliferation of platforms and data is driving a much more complicated landscape, exponentially multiplying how to connect with audiences. David sees the big challenge as re-aggregating today’s fragmented audiences so advertisers can deliver messages at scale.

    David says there’s no silver bullet for addressing this, but believes data and measurement are the key pathways. With advertisers demanding more flexibility, David sees the TV upfront process as becoming antiquated, with spending shifting to routes that require lower initial commitments and more room to adapt. He says there’s no “must-buy” in TV any longer, with many digital alternatives now available.

    In the interview David also touches on video pricing, how measurement challenges are holding back spending, why SVOD is driving declines in linear TV ratings, why pay-TV unbundling is coming, millennials’ expectations, how programmatic is impacting cross-channel video advertising, why lack of premium inventory continues to be a challenge for online video, how UM’s own measurement solution works and how it’s organizing itself to devote more resources to campaign optimization.

    We wrap up with David sharing his thoughts on 4 major video providers and what’s ahead in the next 12 months.
