• NBCU EVP Dan Lovinger and Starcom USA President Amanda Richman to Keynote SHIFT // 2016 Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit

    I’m excited to share that Dan Lovinger, EVP, Entertainment Advertising Sales Group at NBCUniversal and Amanda Richman, President, Starcom USA, will be our keynote speakers at our SHIFT // 2016 Programmatic Video & TV Ad Summit on Wednesday, November 30th in NYC.

    Dan will be interviewed by Mike Shields, senior editor at the Wall Street Journal, about how NBCU is innovating with programmatic. With its NBCUx private exchange initiative, NBCU has been one of the most forward-thinking TV network groups. Most recently NBCUx was extended for linear TV, enabling buyers to leverage data and automation across NBCU’s TV networks. In the interview, Dan will discuss how NBCU is building on its traditional ad sales strengths with programmatic, what’s on the roadmap for further innovation and how programmatic will scale across the TV industry.

    Amanda will be interviewed by Matt Spiegel, Managing Director, Marketing & Technology Solutions at MediaLink about agencies’ evolving role in the programmatic video & TV era. Agencies have new opportunities to use data and technology to add value for clients as planning and buying models evolve. Amanda will share insights about how agencies are re-inventing their role for the programmatic era and what’s ahead.

    Both Dan’s and Amanda’s keynote sessions will be highlights in a packed day of deep-dive sessions, with over 25 speakers already on board from throughout the industry.
