Today's digital and social world means brand messaging is happening 24/7, and spend is shifting from traditional media to digital.

III. ANA MEDIA TRANSPARENCY TASK FORCE UPDATE (12:15-12:45PM)
The advertising industry has a "transparency crisis." There have been increasing concerns about the issue of media and media agency transparency – i.e., media sellers and agencies providing honesty and clarity to marketers on costs, placements, and data.
Following a discussion at the June meeting of the ANA Media Leadership Committee, it was agreed to assemble a task force to dive deeper into media transparency issues. In this session, we will share our progress to date on this important industry leadership initiative.

However, many marketers may not yet fully know the capabilities, reach and engagement potential of connected TV advertising and could be at risk of missing a key opportunity to reach their target audience on video's favorite screen!
