October 27 - 28, 2015The Metropolitan Club, Chicago, IL


Art and Science of Digital Advertising

Data, audience targeting, programmatic platforms and predictive analytics are all transforming both advertising and the agencies producing it. Have we become so enamored of the medium that we have forgotten the message? Is tech stifling or enabling creativity? At OMMA Chicago, we will discover how digital technology can provide brands with unique opportunities to tell compelling stories. And at the same time we explore how ad technology could move beyond clutter, invisible messaging and the mobile morass. 

At OMMA Chicago, we will ask and answer questions about the fate of the “big idea” on digital channels and do the math on ad tech, over two days of deep dive into the art and science of advertising:

  • Can big ideas resonate across fragmented, narrowcasting channels? 
  • How have fraud and viewability concerns changed the ad buying process?  
  • How are digital channels driving live retail ROI? Is Ad blocking threat or opportunity? 
  • How can marketers make sense of the mobile metrics muddle? 
  • Do you really want to partner with a social media star?
  • Are media buyers finding a haven from fraud and opacity in private exchanges? 
  • Are VR, mobile payment, connected cars worth marketers’ attention yet?
  • Is digital video really ready for TV ad dollars?
  • And who is watching the data, for accuracy, quality, effectiveness?
