New York, NY -

Adam Gerber

Essence Global President, Media

Meet Adam at:

Upfront 2023-2024
Date/Time: 10:30 AM
With Madison Avenue pushing science, logic and better data targeting, will programmatic trading finally be the undoing of program haggling? Interpublic's Mediabrands predicts -- that with the exception of election years -- TV advertising is now in a permanent recession. Meanwhile, Publicis’ Rishad Tobaccowala predicts as much as 30% of all advertising will disappear by 2024, mainly because consumers will divert their attention to non-ad-supported options like subscription VOD, etc. What do these changes portend for network TV’s annual sales bazaar? Will the upfront remain the last vestige of old school face-to-face -- or martini-to-martini -- human negotiating.
