Data In, Integration Out: Driving the Multi-Touch Media Plan
Advanced data and analytics are driving every media channel, from linear TV to display, video, retail networks, and even programmatic out-of-home. "Reach and frequency" have been replaced by integrated media and multi-touch plans. The Spring edition of MediaPost's decade-old Data and Programmatic Insider Summit leans into the complexity of integrated media planning and measurement. How are advertisers mapping their audiences and media habits across digital screens, matching media to moment and mindset, redefining reach and frequency, and optimizing and measuring the impact of multi-touch plans?
We will explore:
Data-Driven Multi-Touch Planning
Segmentation and building target audiences
Leveraging Retail Media Networks
First and third-party data strategy
As data-driven media explodes onto every available sightline, MediaPost's Data and Programmatic Insider Summit brings a bigger funnel.

HP's research recently uncovered the unreliability of cookie-based third-party data, begging the question whether personalization and targeting projects are even worth the effort. But what is a brand to do when it doesn't always own the point of conversion and has to build targeting and measurement models in such a constricted data environment. Freddie walks us through how HP is solving for dirty data with MTA and MMM modeling and linking it into their programmatic media optimization approach.
Panel: Multi-Touch Media Planning: Media-Mapping the Customer Journey

As Keith Hung has worked across industries and brands, he has learned that "fishing where the fish are" is harder than it sounds. We explore with him how brands often chase immediate revenue at the expense of longer-term demand generation and without the proper use of first- and third-party data to get a clear view of media impact, impact vs. efficiency. We dig into the models for filling the data gaps, getting that data quickly into the right hands, and planning against leading vs. lagging indicators.
