We Want Our DTC TV

Follow the Live Stream here.

Video is now more directly connected to the interests and needs of viewers, more fully integrated into their daily lives and every touchpoint of their media consumption. OTT, digital and mobile screens, and the entire connected TV (CTV) environment represent more than more screens for marketers. They provide a new opportunity to make more substantial, direct and deeper impact on customers with stories that are both rich and relevant. But brands and their agencies first need to grasp this DTC TV moment and master the tools for sharper targeting, richer content, more precise measurement and media accountability.

At the annual fall edition of MediaPost’s TV and Video Insider Summit we make that direct-to-consumer connection by tuning in to…

OTT channels blossoming with contextual and behavioral targeting opportunities

The broader palette of branded storytelling

How media planners and buyers supercharge linear budgets with data-infused targeting

How advertisers leverage their own first party data to find customers and prospects on every available screen

How planners are knitting together diverse metrics across screens to hold their media accountable

How a new generation of DTC brands and political media buyers are bringing online targeting and performance sensibilities to TV

At MediaPost’s fall gathering of the connected TV and video gurus we go direct – to the people who are planning, buying and telling the next generation of brand stories more directly to the customers they want.


About TV & Video Insider Summit

The TV & Video Insider Summit is a three-day event that brings together the brightest minds in the business to share leading-edge information and experiences in a think-tank environment, while exploring new technology, strategies and tactics in TV and video. For the Summit we bring in 50 top Marketing and Ad Agency buyers responsible for TV and video marketing strategies and budgets to network, debate and share best practices.

Attendance for the Summits is capped to ensure conversations, learnings and overall experiences are intimate, productive and highly useful. Each day is comprised of high-impact content sessions in the morning coupled with unmatched networking activities in the afternoons. We return each evening with Cocktail receptions, fine Dining experiences, and After-hours fun.

The end result is a highly unique format that's intimate, inclusive and memorable on all fronts - an experience that allows everyone the opportunity to build REAL relationships well beyond that of a simple exchange of a business card.
