II. IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON, THEN WHY CAN'T WE MAKE A BROADCAST AD EXCHANGE? (11:10AM-12:00PM)
Ad exchanges provide technology and efficiency to advertisers. They can be a centralized mechanism for aggregating the impressions across multiple Ad Networks. We can achieve this within the digital world, so why has it been so difficult to establish online ad exchanges for broadcast ad inventory? In this session, you will hear about the different platforms currently in place and what it will take for widespread adoption from buyers and sellers of broadcast ad inventory.
Dave Newmark, Founder and CEO – Bid4Spots
III. TEAMING UP WITH THE RIGHT CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION, WHILE MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THE COMPANY'S OVERALL COMMUNICATION EFFORTS (1:00-2:00PM)
Many companies give back to the community and try to tie efforts in with the overall corporate direction. Some are successful and others fail miserably. In this session you will hear what Samsung was looking to achieve and how they went about implementing a very successful corporate philanthropy program with an ROI that exceeded expectations. In addition, there will also be other corporate examples and case studies presented.
