Harnessing the Power of Programmatic

This event is over.

This session is available as a member-benefit to full ANA members only. Seats are limited and confirmation of attendance will be required in advance of the session.



Are you among the marketers not fully leveraging the benefits of the growing area of programmatic?  During this highly interactive workshop you will overcome hurdles as we demystify how programmatic works and help you develop a roadmap that will allow you to make programmatic work for your organization.


Marketers will gain a greater understanding of the components of the programmatic ecosystem, including trading desks, DSPs (demand side platforms), SSPs (supply side platforms), DMPs (data management platforms) and exchanges. You will learn the different types of programmatic buying (guaranteed buys, private marketplaces and RTB) and forms of data and improve your ability to help protect against concerns such as transparency, fraud and viewability.

  • Anyone in a marketing organization who does not have advanced knowledge of programmatic operations, advantages, disadvantages, best practices and related issues such as fraud and visibility
  • Middle to senior marketers in marketing and media, digital strategy, procurement/finance and legal, and research/analytics
