    I’m honored that these executives are allocating time from their busy schedules to participate in the Summit. I anticipate adding more executives to the program in the coming weeks. The sessions are coming together nicely and I’ll be able to announce them shortly as well.


    A reminder, the CTV Brand Suitability Summit is the first and only connected TV advertising industry event that is 100% focused on all aspects of brand suitability and safety, including the integral role of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

    I’m aiming for the Summit to be the most compelling two afternoons in 2021 for increasing our collective understanding of CTV advertising, brand suitability and safety, and DE&I. I know that is a high aspiration but I’ve been really gratified so far by the support that the event has received from the biggest U.S. advertising agencies and many others.

    Many thanks to the Summit’s Presenting Partner Pixability, Gold Partner Mediaocean and Silver Partners FreeWheel and Roku (more to come shortly), and our initial Agency Partners GroupM, Horizon Media, Publicis Media and UM (also more to come shortly).
