Meet Colleen at:

Forecast 2019 – Fighting the Attention Wars
Date/Time: 9:00 AM
Consumer attention is as fleeting as it is fragmented, and paths to purchase are as chaotic as they are individual. We ask leading media buyers and brands to reflect on their allocation bets for 2019 and what understanding of consumer attention and decision-making informed them? How have consumer behaviors, brand safety, walled gardens, transparency and the increasing invisibility of advertising shaped their thinking and planning? What has caused them to shift dollars one way or the other? And what course corrections may be necessary by year’s end?
