2014 ANA Masters of Measurement Conference presented by Time Inc.
This event is over.
“What gets measured is what gets done" is an old business maxim that's as relevant today as it has ever been. Plain and simple, better measurement can help marketers make better business decisions and, as a result, add billions of dollars to the bottom lines of the marketing ecosystem.
The first-ever ANA conference focused exclusively on measurement — the “Masters of Measurement” Conference — will provide attendees with practical ideas to improve marketing decision making through measurement.
The conference will explore timely measurement issues including:
- Cross-platform measurement
- Developing and measuring return on investments
- Predictive analytics
- Targeting customers more effectively and efficiently
- Taking marketing analytics in-house
- And more!
This is a one and a half day event. The main conference is on Tuesday, September 23 at 583 Park Avenue. On Monday, September 22 we are offering an afternoon of “bonus content” hosted by Time Inc. at the Time & Life Building. That pre-conference bonus session is only open to registrants for the main conference.
