About the Conference

June 16-18, 2021 | In-Person and Virtual

MEDIA. Media is a key priority of the ANA Growth Agenda to drive business through marketing. Media is the most significant marketing spend for most companies. But it's not simple anymore. Media is fragmented, complicated, and complex – and becoming more so every day. Marketers are navigating a variety of issues, new challenges and opportunities – programmatic, data, CTV, brand safety, measurement, ad fraud, transparency, performance marketing, walled gardens, consumer privacy, media auditing, influencers, viewability, retailers as media channels, the sunsetting of cookies, and more! It's all a bit dizzying. The ANA Media Conference provides the forum to discuss the industry's most important and pressing media issues to help marketers drive business growth.

Since its introduction in 2013, the ANA Media Conference has grown to be one of the industry's most important events. It's the conference where the industry-shaking transparency story first broke in 2015 and one of the industry's first in-person events of the year... on one of the most important topics. MEDIA.

Media KPIs That Matter

The recently established ANA Media Leadership Growth Council fielded a survey about media KPIs in early 2021 and discovered that the most important KPIs are generally not the most used KPIs. This report offers exclusive survey results illustrating the industry's opportunity to increase the use of outcome and measurement quality KPIs as media investments are increasingly held accountable for driving results.

List of Certified Diverse Suppliers

This recently updated list of certified diverse suppliers for marketing and advertising helps you use women-owned, ethnic/minority-owned, veteran-owned, LGBTQ-owned, disability-owned, and small businesses as suppliers.
