The Rise of the Machines
The rise of the programmatic ecosystem and its impact on Shopper Marketing.
Speaker: Steve Ustaris – CMO of ownerIQ
Since the advent of “open ad exchanges” 10 years ago, the era of programmatic has given rise to an entire ecosystem of ad tech and mar tech products and services. By 2017, programmatic buying in the US will surpass $27 Billion and account for 72% of total display ad spending.
How can shopper marketing agencies adjust to this new world and bring the power of “real-time” automated marketing to their clients?
In this session, Steve Ustaris will help shopper marketers gain a better understanding of the true benefits of programmatic strategies by breaking down the ecosystem.

2017 the year of “SMATDs”?
Are you ready to build your Shopper Marketing Agency Trading Desk in 2017?
Moderator: William (“Bill”) Lederer – Chief Executive Officer | MRP Advisers LLC dba MediaTrader
Panelists: Robert Daniel – EVP Sales at ownerIQ Michael Pollack – SVP of Digital at News America Cristina Costa – Digital Director at Mosaic Shopper
ATDs, or Agency Trading Desks, are everywhere! These complex buying entities sit within almost every agency, either at the holding company level (ex- IPG’s Cadreon, WPP’s Xaxis, etc.) or at the agency level. ATDs are extremely appealing because they can create efficiency for clients and drive massive revenue for the agency. However, the concept of ATDs has yet to go mainstream within Shopper Marketing Agencies.
This panel of experts will discuss the concept of a SMATD, or Shopper Marketing Agency Trading Desk: What would this look like? How would it differ from standard ATDs? What are the benefits…the economics… the risks?

Eric Leist will discuss how mobile will power a new level of personalized, programmatic shopper marketing. From the store aisle to your refrigerator, the path to purchase is going mobile!
