I. CAMPBELL SOUP COMPANY: THE SOCIAL COMMERCE DEBATE: COMMUNITY BUILDER OR DESTROYER? (10:15 -11:00 a.m.)
Does the rise of social commerce signal the end of community engagement? Social commerce is arguably one of the largest growing trends of 2019 – with no signs of slowing down. What started in the fashion and beauty industry has quickly infiltrated CPG and consumer products organizations, with many brands trying determine how best (if at all) to lean into this trend. In this session Annie Ritchie, Senior Manager, Social Media & Digital Content at Campbell Soup Company will share the latest trends in the social commerce space – including how platforms are evolving, brand storytelling is shifting, and the social contract between brand and consumer could potentially be changed forever.

IV. FRAUD IN DIGITAL ADVERTISING (1:15 – 2:00 p.m.)
ANA and White Ops have once again partnered (for the fourth time) on a study to measure bot fraud in the digital advertising ecosystem. The first study, conducted in 2014, was revolutionary as it drove widespread awareness of the digital ad fraud problem and was a "call to arms" for marketers to take an active role in addressing the issue. The last study published (our third in May 2017) estimated global losses due to fraud to be $6.5 billion. Fifty ANA member companies participated in the most recent study. This session will debut results and share best practices to help combat and minimize the dollars lost to digital ad fraud.
