Traditional Media's Wake-Up Call: You May Think You're Innovating, But You're Not

Being a magazine-media company may mean that you have deep relationships with your customers, who love print, but that you're still missing out on leading-edge opportunities in digital engagement, and missing the warning signs around newer trends such as programmatic and automated ad-buying. In the end, if you're not walking the walk, you're just talking the talk. Sit in for a look at what's really innovative, and where magazine brands will fit in the advertising landscape in the next 10 years.

How to Drive ROI With Social

For many brands, advertising on social is an on-going experiment. But proven models have emerged that drive measurable results. From Pinterest to Facebook and Twitter, learn how content publishers and brands are partnering on specific, social-based ad campaigns that drive conversions, leads and engagement and how the partners are capitalizing on campaign metrics.

Creative Innovation Roundtable

Integrated marketing is demanding more channels, more options, more technologies to master, and more expectations on the part of brands. There's native, mobile, video and social. As a result, brands are re-evaluating where they're focusing their spending, agencies are facilitating ever-more creative solutions and media companies have to be agile enough to offer a huge array of solutions. Sit in on a no-holds-barred session with all perspectives—brands, agencies and media companies—represented to hear how campaigns are being shaped, what works, what doesn't and how data and technology are influencing sales and marketing.

Big Data or Big Ideas: Are They Mutually Exclusive?

Understanding trends, consumer behavior, what sells and what causes engagement are good things. But when does analysis become paralysis, and when does managing by spreadsheet crowd out serendipitous ideas? There's enormous pressure to use data and tech to drive efficiencies, but is that crowding out the creative, strategic and solutions-based approach to marketing? Here's a look at how leader companies are making data work in the context of creativity, including how publishers are able to blend quantitative analysis with consultation and whether brands are all that interested in looking past CPMs and CPLs.

Is Technology Undercutting the Value of Media Brands?

Technology is not just decoupling audiences from the media brands they enjoy, it is also upending the essential nature of the long-term relationships that agencies have had with publishers. How essential are brands? How essential are personal relationships in the age of programmatic? Our multifacted panel challenges the conventional wisdom, examines technology's influence and probes potential media brand vulnerabilities.
