2014 ANA Mobile First, Mobile Everywhere presented by MediaVest
This event is over.
Mobile, undoubtedly, has arrived and its presence is ubiquitous. The data is compelling:
- 24% of media is now consumed on a mobile device.
- There are more mobile phones (5.1 billion) in the world than toothbrushes (4.2 billion).
- eMarketer estimates that mobile ad spending this year will surpass newspaper and radio.
- Facebook recently announced that 62% of its advertising revenue is from mobile and that 30% of its monthly users only check out Facebook on their mobile devices.
Smartphones and tablets have become a part of consumer’s daily lives as they are now accustomed to viewing content and connecting with people wherever and whenever they want. Meanwhile, the definition of mobile has expanded significantly and includes wearables – called the next generation of mobile devices – and the “internet of things,” e.g., smart homes, connected cars.
Despite the clear opportunity, many marketers remain uncertain about how best to employ mobile and have questions on issues including: the right allocation of ad spending for mobile as part of a broader campaign; challenges with mobile ad formats; use of location-targeted ads; use of “native” ads; and measurement.
The ANA “Mobile First, Mobile Everywhere” event will challenge marketers to consider mobile at the start of every initiative (not as an add on later) and in ways that could surround and add value to the consumer everywhere he or she goes.

TRANSFORMING THE RETAIL EXPERIENCE
With nearly a billion people set to own a smartphone by 2015 and an average of more than 20 apps downloaded and used per device, the retail experience continues to change at a remarkably rapid pace. Digital-savvy consumers are demanding the best possible services, products and experience, and expecting retailers to deliver this through an “anywhere, anytime, any way” omni-channel approach. Walmart and MediaVest will discuss how digital has transformed retail and what marketers can do to meet – and surpass – the latest consumer expectations.
THE FUTURE IN A WORLD OF DIGITIZED DEFINED OBJECTS
Over a decade ago, consumers began replacing analog consumer electronics with their digital counterparts. Portable tape players were swapped for MP3 players, tube TVs were replaced by digital displays, and mobile phones became smart. In 2007 we began embedding sensors into mass market consumer-facing products - forever changing digital products at an escalating pace. We enter 2015 with a suite of devices digitizing our physical environments. Hear how the data our devices digitize not only inform the choices we make but also define who we are, with grand implications for how we live in the future.
