Programmatic Pioneers Summit

The Programmatic Advertising Conference for Leading Brands, Publishers & Agencies

Long Beach, CA, United States

Unlock Your Programmatic Potential

Join us at Programmatic Pioneers to learn how innovative brands like Macy's, American Express, Disney, Samsung, Nestle and many others are optimizing their data to deliver the most accurate audience segmentation across channels through programmatic spend.

The programmatic value chain is complex. Issues relating to price and data transparency, data privacy and ad fraud present brands with daily challenges. And with a shortage of talent companies aren't sure whether to keep this function in-house or outsource it altogether. Attending Programmatic Pioneers will help you untangle some of these complexities and ensure you walk away with proven strategies to unlock your programmatic potential.

Who Attends

Join 150+ Heads of Programmatic, Media, Marketing, Digital, Acquisition, Performance, Digital and Advertising to get the actionable strategies you need to implement in order to unlock the full potential of your programmatic program, and gain transparency from third-party providers.
