VM201. Overcoming Obstacles: Getting a Handle on Brand Safety, Viewability, and More

Wednesday, May 9: 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

2017 was a hell of a year, wasn't it? With ad fraud rampant, well-publicized brand safety debacles, and too little transparency, it's a wonder anyone uses online video advertising at all. But there's good news: Better systems are being created and the ecosystem is healthier than ever. This session will lead off with fresh research from the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) on the TAG Certified Against Fraud Program to reduce fraud across the digital advertising supply chain, then offer a panel discussion on Ads.txt, blockchain, and the other technologies that will shape the future.

VM202. Go Too Far: Pushing the Envelope in Brand Storytelling

Wednesday, May 9: 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

How are you going to know you’ve pushed the envelope as far as it will go unless you push it just a little too far? In this panel discussion, leading brand video storytellers show clips from their bravest and boldest work, then tell you how to experiment in form, voice, subject, and technology to surprise and delight prospective customers. Viewers are tired of the same-old, same-old, so grab their attention and don’t let go.

VM203. The Future Is Cross-Screen: Running a Cross-Screen Campaign

Wednesday, May 9: 1:45 p.m. - 2:45 p.m.

Video marketing is about reaching consumers on every screen they own. Broadcast TV, connected TV, mobile, desktop, tablets: They all have a role to play, and the trick is to use them in the right combination. This session starts with a presentation by Nielsen called, "How Digital Video and Advertising are Revolutionizing the TV Screen," which will present fresh research from Nielsen. It then offers a panel discussion with brands and agencies explaining how to do cross-screen marketing the right way.

VM204. See It First

Wednesday, May 9: 3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The screen is no longer a flat panel, as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 360° video, and other hybrid systems give marketers new ways to play and new platforms to reach viewers. But how much of this is hype, and how much is real (not virtual) reality? In this panel, experts explain how these areas will take off and how to reach connected viewers.
