From owning National Mustard Day to the Hot Sauce Wars of 2021, by adding appeal to functions, connecting with culture and investing in television, OLV, and paid social in concert with PR, McCormick has earned widespread broadcast coverage and successfully kept their brands top of mind.

Presentation: Next Frontier of Video - OOH, Gaming, Live & More
The video ecosystem has expanded well beyond OLV, CTV, and Native to encompass Gaming, DOOH, Live, and Creators. OOH used to be a glorified real estate business until Programmatic emerged as a transformative equalizer with substantial video inventory. Gamers long accessed CTV through the console experience until COVID rewrote the rules for experiential in a way that now almost requires a “Live” component for those not in attendance. And now there’s Video Creators vs the Streaming platforms conversation. Albert Thompson, Managing Director, Digital Innovation at Walton Isaacson, will discuss how agencies and brands alike, need to plan for extended consumer views offered through video points of contact; i.e. Gas stations, Retail Stores, Offices, Transit, Ridesharing, Gaming, TikTok, YouTube…all things Live.
