2017 ANA Data & Measurement Conference Presented by Google

The importance of data, analytics and measurement within an organization cannot be understated. It is why we have witnessed the rise of data science teams with heavy investments in building infrastructure to capture consumer data to understand how to capitalize on it.  In this increasingly competitive marketplace, marketers must find ways to satisfy ever-demanding consumers by employing tools to help identify and predict their behavior and needs and to measure and optimize marketing effectiveness. Leveraging data and measurement is invaluable to remain relevant and drive growth.

Is your organization ready to compete? Are you set up for success? Join us at the 2017 ANA Data & Measurement Conference, presented by Google where we will explore topics such as managing data, predictive analytics, cross-platform measurement, marketing mix modeling, attribution, building an in-house analytics team, neuroscience marketing, and much more. Come learn, network, and get inspired!

The hashtag for this event is #ANAMetrics.

Confirmed Sessions:

The analytics & insights industry is in a state of transformation. We can leverage the power of technology, data and development of behavioral sciences in innovative ways to provide higher quality of insights to better meet consumer needs and confidence in measurement to deliver marketing that works to drive business and brand growth. This requires a transparent, open and agile operating model. The alternative is to let this opportunity go by with walls, lack of transparency and fragmented measures that create an environment of waste and doubt. In this session, Procter & Gamble will discuss their approach and what we can do as an industry to realize the promise of this opportunity.
