Media Innovation @ Pandora

This event is over.

Media innovation has changed everything from how audiences consume news to the way revenue is earned. Forward-thinking brands are redesigning the way stories are told and the way content is distributed. In this increasingly competitive marketplace, marketers must understand not only how to connect with their customers in new ways, but how to define and track ROI for innovative media strategies.

Join us for this ANA members-only event, presented by Pandora, where you will hear insightful case studies, best practices, and actionable takeaways on content, attribution, and how to adapt to changing consumer preferences and behavior. You will also learn from and network with industry peers who work to influence media strategy and drive business goals through innovation.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE SOUND LIKE?

We are witnessing a massive technological shift. A new age of connectivity. An audio revolution. In today’s media rich environment, where consumer touch points are increasingly screenless, there is no question that sound is fast becoming a primary driver of brand identity and storytelling. How will brands navigate the challenges of this rapidly changing sonic landscape, where capturing ears is as important as capturing eyes?

In this session, hear about why audio resonates and learn how brand partners are using sound to create a brand experience, identity, communication, and innovation to connect with consumers. You will leave thinking about how to harness the power of audio and the importance of having an audio strategy to engage their audience.
