Most Anticipated Presentations

Here are more detailed descriptions of some of the most highly anticipated presentations at the Digiday Media Buying Summit:

  • Opportunity in Crisis: Shaking up Traditional Media Structures for Transformative Growth
    Traditional approaches to media buying and measurement don’t work in today’s landscape transformed by digital. As marketers navigate an ever-shifting world, they grapple with the need for transparency, data signal loss, and a need for a closer and redefined relationship with procurement. It’s time for the media industry to stop getting in its own way — and reimagine what an ROI-focused media partner looks like. In this session, Media.Monks’ global head of media, Melissa Wisehart will shed light on barriers to transformation and how to forge ahead with a new playbook for growth.
    Speaker:  Melissa Wisehart, Global Head of Media, Media.Monks
  • Why Advertisers Are Still Making Space for Experimental Budgets Even With Economic Uncertainty
    Even in the midst of economic uncertainty, advertisers are bullish on experimental ad spend. While ad spend across the board is reducing, agencies are advising clients to maintain their budgets to test and learn in channels that are newer, like TikTok, or new to them, like digital video and streaming audio. In this session, hear from Fitzco’s head of media, Claire Russell on why that is the case and what there is to gain by doing so.

  • Fluctuating Media Buying Budgets in 2023
    Media buyers’ spending flexibility in 2023 is being impacted by several factors, including a rapidly changing technological landscape, increased competition, and shifting consumer behavior. The rise of new platforms and technologies has made it more difficult for media buyers to predict which channels will be most effective for reaching target audiences, leading to a greater need for flexibility in their spending. Additionally, the ongoing economic recession has resulted in decreased budgets and greater pressure to maximize the return on investment for each advertising dollar spent. As a result, media buyers are seeking more flexible and adaptive approaches to their spending in order to stay ahead in an ever-evolving media landscape. In this session, hear Shelby Saville, Chief Investment Officer of Publicis Media Exchange comment on the state of the industry and share advice on how media buyers could achieve a high return on investment.
