Programmatic advertising represents one aspect of the promise of cultivating a personal relationship with each customer – at scale – by channeling the huge volume of data being collected into precisely targeted display ads. This tech is a data-driven evolution of technology and tools designed to add value to both advertisers and consumers. “Four of every five US digital display dollars will transact programmatically in 2017, totaling $32.56 billion.” (eMarketer) That will continue to grow dramatically.

Our panel of programmatic advertising experts will consider a variety of questions about the success, challenges, and future of this technology:

  • Data that’s best for programmatic advertising?

  • Key considerations for self-service advertising vs. agencies

  • Privacy and ethics

  • Current challenges

  • The future: living up to the promise?
