The event, which is sponsored by Sonobi, is designed to bring all the constituents to the table to discuss the challenges and opportunities surrounding premium programmatic. Through keynotes and a roundtable discussion, it aims to spur the expansion of programmatic access to premium supply, help drive more premium brand spend and scale existing performance campaigns.
Terry Kawaja (pictured), CEO of Luma Partners, will present a keynote at PP360NYC. “Programmatic is the hottest trend in digital advertising today though its impact has largely been felt in the remnant inventory category. The exciting aspect of this trend is where software automation meets the premium segment,” says Kawaja. “This undoubtedly will have a major impact on brand advertising in digital and, in fact, all addressable channels.”
Following his presentation, there will be a presentation from the IAB and an interactive roundtable discussion which will include publishers such as Gannett and Meredith, agencies and trading desks including Ogilvy, Xaxis, and Kepler Group.
“The ability to access premium inventory from hundreds of top pubs has fundamentally changed how we run campaigns and how our clients’ strike the right branded dialogue with consumers,” says Rick Greenberg, CEO of Kepler Group. “Premium Programmatic is a key component of true dialogue marketing and we aggressively adopt every tool that accelerates our ability to secure 100% of media – from standard IAB units to expandables and page takeovers – on a truly programmatic basis. The day is fast approaching where every impression will be bought this way.”
“Programmatic buying represents a seismic upheaval of the digital buying process for which the implications for agencies, publishers, and brands is only beginning to be understood,” says Raymond Reid, Managing Director, Neo@Ogilvy. “As all media increasingly becomes digital, the influence of programmatic buying will extend beyond digital to all media platforms which will challenge existing models as well as create new opportunities to reach and engage consumers.”
“It is going to take all components of the industry to get behind this movement towards premium programmatic,” said Michael Connolly (pictured), CEO and Founder, Sonobi. “We have to change the “race to the bottom” mindset that currently describes the current RTB marketplace. This conference is the first real effort on both the supply and demand side to move this market forward.”
