MYTH BUSTING IN-GAME ADVERTISING MEASUREMENT

As agencies and brands level up their media buy strategies with intrinsic in-game advertising, performance marketers around the world are exploring how to best approach measurement in 3D gaming environments. Often, the assumption is that many KPI’s are not applicable in virtual worlds, but the reality is that measurement can be just as robust as other digital forms of advertising when executed correctly.

Frameplay Chief Strategy and Operations Officer Cary Tilds will introduce the NEW metrics for in-game advertising, which follow the recently released IAB U.S. and U.K. framework (and future MRC guidelines) that were influenced by Frameplay’s industry leadership. Additionally, she will review the stringent standards for 3D viewability and publicly share (for the first time!) a first-to-market impression to engagement attribution measurement case study.

How do you transform a category leader that is losing market share into a pioneering leader that redefines category codes? The Glenlivet transformation journey was originally inspired by consumer insights that set the brand on a bold new trajectory. No longer should single malt be exclusive, polarizing, and defined by complex rules and rituals. The Glenlivet took on a mission to challenge the status quo and become more inclusive by actively opening the door to the next generation of whisky consumers, including women, younger generations, and multicultural consumers. Join Sona Bajaria, Vice President of Marketing and Kelly Suhr, Brand Director on how The Glenlivet is breaking barriers across all brand touchpoints to redefine what it means to be a single malt in today’s world.

SHAPE THE FUTURE WITH YOUR MOST GROWTH-PREDICTIVE CUSTOMERS (AND MAKE BEST FRIENDS WITH YOUR CFO!)

Are you tired of talking about the future while measuring the past? Are you using customer-centric tactics but not seeing the uplift a customer-centric strategy should produce? Does your gut say relationships matter, but your data collection focuses on transactional?

In this talk, Jessica DeVlieger, CEO of Customer Agency, C Space and Peter Fader, Wharton School Marketing Professor and Author of Customer Centricity and The Customer Centricity Playbook, will explain that instead of spreading the marketing dollars and hoping for the best, you can re-focus spend on building relationships with the customers that are most predictive of your long-term growth.

In their lively conversation they will share their approach to designing a customer strategy that identifies which of your customers have the potential to be the most valuable (and forecast future growth) and overlays insight data about how they want your customer experiences to feel, giving you a lever for enriching and deepening them.

They’ll describe how you can move beyond lagging transactional measurement, to a predictive model that both prioritizes and prescribes an investment approach based on * both * what the customer wants and the potential value of that customer – giving you a truly customer-centric strategy and a leading edge on the competition.

DATA & INSIGHTS: EARNING, OWNING & KEEPING YOUR SEAT AT THE TABLE

"You only did focus groups?" "You only interviewed 2,000 people?" "That panel only has 40,000 households?" "You can't believe what consumers tell you." "Our customer database represents millions of people and billions of dollars in transactions!" How many times have you heard these things? There are a lot of research skeptics out there, and it's up to us to prove them wrong. This keynote will: 1) talk about the evolution of the roles and organizational designs of Research, Data and Analytics in our industry, and 2) share principles and best practices to integrate Consumer Insights and Data Science to drive business outcomes using ALL of the knowledge that our organizations have at their disposal.
