I. MARS US: WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF THE DIGITAL MEDIA MARKET? (10:00am-11:00am)
There is always the "next new thing" for marketers to do in digital media, but what is happening behind the scenes? How does the market operate financially? Gone are the days when it consisted of just four big portals. Now there are ad exchanges, DSPs, ad networks, aggregators on aggregators. There is a multibillion-dollar digital media "spot market" right now. Is digital media ripe for a futures market-potentially bigger than oil worldwide? How do we know what a "good" or "fair" price is? How do we manage and ensure quality and delivery of media? We as advertisers must understand this and make our voices heard before "market rules" have been established.
Andy Atherton, COO - Brand.net
II. MULTICULTURAL MARKETING AND NEWER MEDIA (11:15am-12:15pm)
New ANA research provides some interesting insights on how marketers are using newer media to reach multicultural consumers. Some key findings:
• The majority of marketers are increasing spending on multicultural media overall, and more specifically newer media platforms, to reach multicultural customers.
• Multicultural marketers allocate, on average, 6.6% of their multicultural media budgets to newer media platforms (versus 15.6% in the general market). Therefore, it appears that multicultural marketers are not spending enough on newer media.
• Mobile is the one newer media platform that is employed considerably more often to reach multicultural consumers than general market consumers.
• Social media is the fastest growing newer media platform for targeting multicultural consumers.
In this session, ANA will share research findings and ask member participants to contribute their experiences.
Bill Duggan, Group Executive Vice President - ANA

IV. MEMBER ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION (1:30-2:30pm)
ANA member roundtable discussions are great ways to share experiences and perspectives on specific topics, while learning from your peers from other companies. We'll discuss:
a. Original Web Series: The star of this year's highest-rated cable movie, Fred Figglehorn from "Fred: the Movie" on Nickelodeon, made his actual debut on YouTube. With the proliferation of original web series, advertisers are now able to tap into top original content with lower costs. In this session we will ask members to share experiences in their use sponsoring and/or integrating their brands into online series and provide examples of case studies they have seen in the marketplace.
