Panel: The Post-Cookie Strategy
Cookies are crumbling, IDFA is opting out, and the walled gardens in search and performance advertising are pushing marketers to let their own machines decide who, when and where to target. As the basic infrastructure of digital marketing shifts, what strategy are brands and agencies building? What identity matching solutions are they leveraging, and how will this change the way campaigns are measured and reported? We press our panel for practical solutions to the challenges ahead.

ABOUT PINEHURST RESORT
Some say you can feel the spirit of Pinehurst as you turn onto Carolina Vista Drive. Built in 1901 by famed architect and designer Frederick Law Olmsted (Central Park in New York City and the grounds of Biltmore House), the majestic century old Carolina Hotel with its sweeping verandas, makes you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time to an era when elegance defined grand hotels and resorts. Dubbed the “Queen of the South,” The Carolina has 230 Four-Diamond guest rooms including suites.
 
Built in 1895, The Holly Inn was Pinehurst’s first hotel and is located a short walk away in the heart of The Village at Pinehurst. The Four Diamond Holly features 82 guest rooms and suites each as unique as the hotel itself. Every detail has been attended to with fine touches in every nook, from the jewel-toned Tiffany lamps, to the reading selection in the library, and to the comfort of a rocking chair in your guest room.
 
Amenities for both lodges include elegant restaurants, casual lounges and bars, coffee shop, tennis courts, bike rentals, fitness center, luxury spa, airport shuttle, and of course access to 9 different world-class golf courses (with 3 of the 9 ranked in Golfweek’s Top 100 in the US). A world-class tennis, spa, meetings, special events and family resort, where life actually seems to slow down - so you can enjoy every minute of it.
