The High Cost of TV: The New Math of Video Everywhere

Video audiences keep fragmenting, yet CPMs keep rising. Traditional TV pricing continues to defy supply and demand... and gravity. Meanwhile, the alternative streaming inventory has spiked, but so have costs. Media buyers find that assembling the reach they crave is both complex and often cost prohibitive.

At the Fall 2021 TV and Video Insider Summit, video buyers and planners help us do the math. How are they building media plans that make sense for their brands…and their budgets? What is the cost/benefit of big brand pushes? Which OTT, linear, Web, or social video channels are mapping best against marketing goals? Are more brands moving towards performance media as reach gets so expensive? How are these rising costs being justified internally?

We will explore:
- Managing video budgets across advanced TV screens
- The strategic advantages of bringing media buying in house
- OTT and the branded video opportunity
- Mapping advanced TV channels against goals
- Navigating the morass of cross-channel measurement
- Are TikTok, eSports advertising paying off?
- Getting ready for the 2022 Upfronts

Panel: Cost/Benefit TV: Managing the High Cost of Streaming
As eyeballs latched onto streaming sources, CPMs have spiked, pulling up with linear and cable buys. But the CTV math gets complicated. Is it achieving similar reach? How much overlap is taking place? What is the real unique reach cost relative to other video channels? How are marketers doing the cost/benefit math on TV, generally, and increasingly expensive CTV, especially?

Activities

Tuesday 2 p.m.

Montauk Brewing Company Tasting Room

What began in 2012 as a basement brewing operation among longtime friends, Montauk Brewing Company has grown to embody the spirit of this seaside town. The first hand-filled kegs were delivered on bicycles to a couple of local bars and this hometown vibe remains as the staple of the Brewery and it's operation today.

Enjoy a great networking outing with fellow Summiters at this unique sea-side setting.  Sample a wide variety of brews in the Tasting Room and learn more about the intricacies of what makes New York's easternmost brewery so special to the town and Long Island itself.

Tuesday 2 p.m.

Horseback Riding at Deep Hollow Ranch

Located in Montauk, New York amidst thousands of preserved acres of spectacular coastal land, Deep Hollow Ranch welcomes visitors from all over the world, from the experienced cowhand to the beginner. Here one can step back in time and catch a glimpse of America’s rich history.

Trail rides wind through breathtaking scenery and the pristine, white sandy beaches near Montauk. Come ride with us, get a taste of history and explore some of the most beautiful coastline in the United States.

Tuesday 2 p.m.

Bike Tour of Montauk

There’s something much more awesome and intimate about discovering a place from the seat of a bike. Pedaling around the turn to find a secluded stretch of beach, no car engine muffling out the sound of waves crashing against the shore. So it is here in Montauk, Long Island, where two wheels are far better than four. You’ll be surprised by how much you can see without breaking a big sweat or having to wear those unflattering padded shorts.



Wednesday 2 p.m.

Wine Tasting & Tour at Wölffer Estate Winery

For 30 years, Wölffer Estate Vineyard has been known as one of the finest wine producers on the East Coast and a center for innovation and hospitality.  The vineyard is committed to producing premium, distinctive wines, ciders and spirits through dedication to quality, penchant for style and celebration of place.

Founded in 1988 by Christian Wölffer, a man with great creative vision and a huge passion for life, the 470 acre estate today is owned and operated by his children, Marc and Joey Wölffer and Winemaker/Partner Roman Roth. 

Enjoy a great afternoon with your Summit colleagues on a short walking tour of the vineyard and wine cellar accompanied by a tasting of various award-winning wines along the tour. A perfect day to spend the afternoon making new friends or re-connecting with old, in one of the prettiest places on Long Island.

Wednesday 2 p.m.

Golf at Montauk Downs Golf Course

Founded in 1927, the gorgeous Montauk Downs Golf course features natural ponds, deep woods and scrubby underbrush - all with constantly come into play along with occasional tricky crosswinds off of the Atlantic Ocean, Lake Montauk and Fort Pond Bay in the vicinity.

The Golf Channel ranked Montauk Dows as the second-best "hidden gem" in the country. Golfweek rates it 13th among the top public golf courses in New York state. The course's isolation along the eastern shores of Long Island gives golfers a wonderfully remote place to enjoy the game and is kept in immaculate condition year-round.

Wednesday 2 p.m.

Fishing Charter

Fishing Guides will take you to the best fishing spots in and around Montauk that teem with fish of all breeds - fluke, striped bass, northern kingfish, bluefish, and Atlantic cod, among others are all common trophies! Guides provide the poles, bait and necessary supplies. Sunscreen and water resistant clothing recommended. Activity ends at 6PM.
