The Agenda

08:15am: Registration & Breakfast

09:00am: Chair’s opening remarks – Introduction to the topic
Austyn Allison | Editor, Campaign ME

09:05am: Keynote: Ad tech 2020

An experienced expert will explain what ad tech trends are emerging and how they are likely to change our perception of the sector and how we work with it. The speaker will look at how ad tech is moving beyond buying and into creativity, and how the media that we can target is expanding beyond display and social and into fields as diverse as gaming, voice and radio. The speaker will lay out where we are today in our use of ad tech, what changes are coming and what those changes mean for everyone working within the media, marketing and advertising industry – from clients to agencies to media.

Christos Solomi |  Managing Director, Artefact

09:20am: Panel 1: People, processes and programmatic – when computers meet humans

This panel will pick up on some of the keynote speaker’s predictions and address the mindsets and skillsets that are needed to make the most of ad tech. It will address: talent and skills that are needed, and their availability in the region; how ad tech can be used to amplify creativity rather than hamper it; and how media can begin to embrace ad tech most effectively and efficiently.

10:00am: Q&A

10:05am: Panel 2: Cookie crumbs

Change is afoot in the world of cookies. Many ad tech solutions rely on data gathered and shared through cookie technology. But as new data regulations are brought in, cookies are going to be kept for shorter periods of time – and the browsers themselves are introducing tough new measures to restrict the use of cookies. Does this mean a data-less world where marketers have no visibility of their online customers? Not at all, but it will require a reimagining of what we track and how. Campaign’s panel looks at what changes are coming to cookies near you, and how to keep your data crunchy.
