The marketers are expected to speak candidly about why they use digital place-based media, the barriers to greater usage and how agencies, networks and other stakeholders can help overcome some of these barriers to deliver a more useful and impactful tool for their brands.
The Digital Media Summit will examine critical topics related to digital place-based media, including contextual engagement and planning strategies, and feature case studies presented by leading national advertisers. The event also will delve into key issues and the latest advancements in the research arena, as well as case studies on engaging consumers through technology.
