The media landscape is hyper-fragmented and has never been more complicated. We are facing very serious issues. Ad fraud, piracy, and non-viewability threaten the optimization of digital media. Marketers are feeling a breakdown in transparency and trust with their media agencies and suppliers; Ad Age, in fact, identified media transparency as one of its "Biggest Stories of the Year." Many marketers still struggle to fully optimize programmatic buying. Increasingly, clients are taking agency services in house. And while native advertising offers benefits, the industry is still challenged on how best to disclose to consumers that this is indeed advertising. Plus, media measurement issues remain an evergreen topic. Finally, marketers struggle with the balance between traditional media platforms (that still work!) and newer media, such as mobile. The only constant in the media industry is change.
Retail Design Expo has been carefully crafted by a star-studded steering panel of leading retail designers, marketers, visual merchandisers and architects. It is taking the industry by storm!

Building on the continued success for the only global conference series focusing on innovation and mobile marketing research, MRMW features world class speakers, cutting edge discussions and a review of the latest tools and technologies available.
In the run-up to the election and following delayed European legislation, delegates will discuss what steps businesses should be taking to ensure their compliance and priorities for long-term strategies. Delegates will also discuss the challenges of reconciling privacy concerns and the 'right to be forgotten' with freedom of information and public interest, as well as implications for policing following recent cases of ISPs and websites informing on the viewing of illegal content by users.
Our expert speakers will explore case studies excelling in omnichannel, developing the talent pool, retail entertainment, engaging with the mobile first generation and much more. Attend the Congress to fully understand the opportunities in this region over the coming years.
Leveraging this uniqueness of mobile, the 2015 MMA NY Forum will focus on how brands can acquire and reach new customers, such as millennials, women, gamers and others, with the brimming options in the mobile toolbox including programmatic, location, video, measurement and more. Tech savvy individuals, regardless of age, gender or race, use mobile to stay connected to friends, social causes and their favorite brands, but there is no one-size fits all solution.
Two full days of the conference are dedicated to keynotes, breakout sessions, and multiple tracks of programming from which to focus attention. With speakers citing specific examples of content marketing success, attendees will be able to apply learnings, and make sure they're getting the most out of their marketing plans.
Whether you represent a brand, a sponsorship opportunity or clients needing to forge compelling partnerships, IEG's four-day boot camp for brain will show you how to become a high performer by replacing approaches based on what's been with strategies built around what could be.

We've cut through the noise like no one else to share critical insights that will shape a new framework for your future. During this two-day event, your questions, your input, your ideas will set our agenda in the post-digital world before the Upfronts, NewFronts, and Cannes even get started.
This conference has two and a half days of inspiring and insightful sessions from top marketers, retailers, and their agencies. Hear about campaigns that touch the consumer and shopper in innovative and results-driven approaches, using disciplines in promotion, experiential marketing, social media and other influencer marketing strategies, loyalty, shopper marketing, and content marketing. For most brands, these disciplines account for 50% of your marketing budget.
In the 2015 instalment of the agenda-setting Now / Next / Why series, Contagious will challenge our industry's preoccupation with 'omnichannel' and focus instead on what matters to real people: the interaction they have – anytime, anywhere or anyhow – with your brand.
New ideas and evidence will be presented by global thought leaders and practitioners. The event will bring together practitioners, academics, policy makers, researchers and industry experts to explore and enrich social marketing practice around the world. In addition to new learning in the fields of health, environment, criminal justice, transport and finance there will also be a particular focus on the charity and not for profit sector, critical marketing theory and practice, substance abuse and digital marketing advances.

Today's customer has more access to information and influencers, at a click or swipe, than ever. The speed at which consumer decisions are made keeps increasing, and the time it takes for battles over wallet-share to be won or lost is shrinking rapidly. Every fundamental assumption about customers is now being challenged: how they shop, where they shop, and why they shop. In this rapidly evolving environment, understanding consumers' behaviors is more critical than ever for retailers and consumer goods companies attempting to develop and execute high-velocity growth strategies.
Knowledge@Wharton is once again partnering with the Jay H. Baker Retailing Center and Momentum to host this summit, which will focus on how rapidly changing behaviors, technologies and expectations will influence the retail and consumer goods customer of 2025.

The exhibition features technologies from network solution providers, content management solutions, middleware and gateways to quality and security improvement; alongside this runs a three day conference focusing on monetising the evolution of TV Everywhere.
The data doesn't need to be necessarily big, but it needs to be the right data,: smart data. The I-COM Global Summit Conference will consist of four main threads: data, ecosystem, channels (media, retail) and consumer.
