Upfront 2022-2023
TV's upfront advertising market period tries another tune this season -- one where a chorus of new currencies, increased flexibilities, and innovative cross-platform business outcome guarantees have become pressing mantras. What really will make it to the bottomline as media agencies and TV networks search for common ground? Legacy TV-media measures could hold back the size and scope of these transitions. We look for answers.

Upfront 2027-2028
What will the “post-currency” era of upfront marketplaces look like? Tune into a conversation top media buyers and chief investment officers to learn how the not-to-distant future of a converged linear/non-linear TV/video marketplace will evolved based on Big Data, consumer privacy, clean rooms, "certification," and a new frontier of identity resolution methods that will have emerged to replace the upfront’s long-standing “GRP” gold standard and how that will affect the supply-and-demand dynamics of upfront negotiations.
