New York Roundtable

Feb 26, 2013 / 1:30 PM - 7 PM / Le Parker Méridien

Thanks for your interest! We respond to all requests within two days.

How can TV and Digital come together to improve video marketing?

Between a Nielsen led discussion on what the industry needs for true cross platform measurement and open forums led by advisors regarding issues plaguing the industry & the value of content, the Roundtable will make for a powerful afternoon.

Videonomics is a series of marketing summits, of which David Cohen, UM; Maureen Bosetti, ZenithOptimedia; and a number of other media leaders serve on the board.  The NYC Roundtable will bring together 40 top brand marketers and agency execs in a meaningful way, to try and break down some of the institutional barriers that exist in video advertising today.

Board member Kris Magel, Initiative said it best, “The Videonomics topic is pretty interesting.  It’s been an inflammatory issue to date, but TV and Digital executives have got to get together.  The truth is that TV events have a few digital marketers and Digital events have a few TV people but there is no one place where this conversation is happening.”

We Have Seen Television’s Future — So When Will it Arrive?

With video advertising jumping from TV to online, tablets and smartphones marketers dream of putting their most powerful messages in front of consumers in new ways and at new times but reality frustrates their efforts.. Meanwhile, a vision of TV becoming more targetable, measurable, and data-driven promises greater efficiency and effectiveness but remains elusive. Have we yet reached the inflection point where these long-promised capabilities become a reality? If so, how will the well-established industry structures and relationships be overhauled? Forrester Principal Analyst Jim Nail will provide a provocative look at the future of television and video advertising.

2:15 pm - 3:00 pm

Cross-Platform Measurement Today…and Tomorrow
