  • Inside the Stream Podcast: Key Takeaways From This Week’s Connected TV Ad Brand Suitability Summit

    Welcome to this week’s edition of Inside the Stream, the podcast where nScreenMedia’s Chief Analyst Colin Dixon and I take listeners inside the world of streaming video.

    Earlier this week was VideoNuze’s Connected TV Ad Brand Suitability Summit virtual, which featured 32 senior executives speaking on 10 sessions across 2 afternoons (all session videos will be available on VideoNuze starting on Monday).

    Some of the sessions focused more generally on the massive shift to CTV advertising, and what’s ahead, while others focused more specifically on brand suitability/safety, DE&I, measurement, identity management, brand building and multi-platform.

    On today’s podcast, Colin and I discuss key takeaways from the conference - both the main opportunities being created by CTV advertising and also the important challenges that still must be addressed for it to reach its full potential.

    One important conclusion that we agree on is that CTV’s ability to enable advertisers to target specific audience segments helps drive more diversity in content creation, which in turns helps foster more inclusivity and multiculturalism. All of this supports society’s evolution to great acceptance and tolerance, which should be critical goals for all.

    CTV advertising’s opportunity is only going to grow in the new year, and there will be ongoing work to solve its challenges. To help better understand all of this, keep an eye for a save the date email from VideoNuze coming soon, announcing the January dates for our inaugural CTV Advertising: Preview 2022 virtual event!

  • 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).

  • Program Announced for CTV Advertising Brand Suitability Summit (virtual) on Nov. 16th and 17th

    I’m really excited to announce the program for the Connected TV Advertising Brand Suitability Summit (virtual) on November 16th and 17th. There are currently 11 sessions planned across the two afternoons, spanning every critical issue related to CTV advertising, brand suitability and safety, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (“DE&I"). There are 25 executives now confirmed as speakers, with many at the C-level and EVP/SVP-level. I’m extremely proud of the diversity represented by the speakers, and I’m confident that attendees will benefit from their wide range of perspectives. (There are still a few speaking slots remaining which will be filled shortly.)

    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 DE&I. These are critical topics within the industry, and since CTV advertising is forecast to double to over $27 billion in the U.S. alone by 2025, it is poised to have an outsized impact.

    I intend for the Summit to elevate our collective understanding of these topics and move the dialogue forward. The Summit has been really well-received by the industry and I’m gratified that GroupM, Horizon Media, Publicis, UM and Dentsu are all on board as “Agency Partners,” which means they’ll each have executives speaking and will widely promote the event to internal and external audiences (and provide complimentary passes to those interested in attending).

    I am personally committing to advancing the industry by directing 10% of sponsorship revenue into a pool to be shared among the Agency Partners to support their DE&I initiatives.

    Many thanks to the Summit’s Presenting Partner Pixability, Gold Partner Mediaocean and Silver Partners FreeWheel, Index Exchange and Roku (more coming shortly).

    Also remember, all paid registrants will be entered to win a 50-inch Roku TV and Smart Soundbar, both generously provided by Roku.  

    Learn more and register now!

    Following is the program, which is also on the Summit web site.
