• Today Only: Complimentary Signup for CTV Advertising Brand Suitability Summit Next Week

    Today only I’m pleased to offer complimentary signup for the Connected TV Advertising Brand Suitability Summit virtual, coming up next week, on Nov. 16th and 17th. The offer is available until tonight at 11:30pm ET. If you were planning to pay the $99 registration fee, I ask that you instead consider donating your fee (or any part of it) to a worthwhile veterans organization. As a little extra incentive, if you do so, and you email me your donor receipt, I will match the first 50 donations. Today is my birthday (I know, it’s hard to believe I’m 28 already), and so 11/11, Veteran’s Day, has always meant something extra to me.

    When you visit the event web site, just click to register, and then in the ticket section look for the blue link “Enter promo code.” Click on it and enter VETS. Select “1” for the complimentary ticket, and “0” for the paid ticket. Then enter your information.

    The Summit program includes 32 amazing speakers on 10 sessions across the two afternoons. Some of the sessions focus on more generally on the massive shift to CTV advertising, and what’s ahead, while others focus more specifically on brand suitability/safety, DE&I, measurement, identity management, brand building and multi-platform. If you’re partially or completely responsible for your company’s success in CTV advertising, I think you’ll get a ton out of the sessions (I’m confident in saying this because I’ve been a “fly on the wall” in all of them).
