Advertising & Marketing Tech


“Digital marketing and advertising technologies enable data-driven customer journeys to delights existing and potential customers across digital touch points and help digital enterprises with improving customer experience and developing data-driven monetization opportunities.””

                                                                                                               — Ashish Patel

The way advertisers and content providers gather and build on customer insights is evolving. With the unbundling and re-bundling of traditional Pay TV and the proliferation of online content delivery channels, addressable advertising has become a focus everywhere. With Facebook, Google and now Amazon cornering the industry, companies will increasingly need to turn to or generate their own first party data to extract consumer insights and measure engagement levels. At the same time, brands need framework to balance customer privacy with intrusive personalized experiences.

Join us for the Advertising and Marketing Tech council to learn about the upcoming trends in the industry, learn about ways to harness your data for in-depth customer, content insights; and manage data privacy using innovative tools and solutions.
