The Trade Desk’s Presentation at OMMA Los Angeles

With the Rio 2016 Olympics in full force currently, it’s only apropos to share with you folks the presentation by The Trade Desk‘s Lorenzo Moreno, at last month’s 2016 OMMA Los Angeles conference.

The lunch presentation sponsored by The Trade Desk titled “Omnichannel Olympics: How Marketers Can Use Programmatic to Climb the Podium in 2016” described how far programmatic advertising has come in the couple of years since the Sochi Winter Olympics. The advertising tech has evolved and gained even more momentum, as it lends its precision to almost every channel and across all devices in 2016. The Trade Desk’s Lorenzo Moreno talked how a programmatic strategy can help marketers reach their target audience on a one-to-one level during the 2016 Olympic games.

In addition, we also want to especially thank The Trade Desk for their continuing support of LA AdTech. Thank you both The Trade Desk and OpenX for sponsoring our most recent annual LA AdTech/OMMA LA reception!

2016 AdTech Trends

Celebrating Ad Tech in LA!

CgpAbK5U8AEtMz0-1Being that we are LA AdTech, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that we love any chance to recognize the thriving digital advertising community here in Los Angeles. So when we learned the new owners of the ad:tech conference decided to postpone its return to Los Angeles until 2017, we figured who better to fill the void than LA AdTech? So, along with our friends at Digital LA, we programmed an evening of content and networking on the topic for Monday, May 2 from 7-9 pm at CTRL Playa.

We’re expecting the best and brightest minds in ad tech to be in attendance, a few of whom will share our stage. OpenX co-founder and CRO Jason Fairchild and respected advertising journalist Tim Peterson will kick off the evening with a fireside chat about why programmatic is so important. Their discussion will be followed by a panel on the state of ad tech in LA and globally, featuring senior-level ad tech executives from SteelHouse, The Trade Desk, Convertro/AOL Platforms and VideoAmp. The content will conclude with a presentation by Eytan Elbaz, who will speak about lessons learned from founding several startups, including Applied Semantics which sold to Google in 2003 and became the foundation of its AdSense paid search product.

Be sure to use promo code LAADTECH for 50% off of the $20 cost of admission. We hope to see you there! Go to or scroll below to register.

We’d like to thank our host CTRL Collective, our partner Kevin Winston at Digital LA and our sponsor OpenX, who has generously underwritten all of the food and beverage for the evening. Complimentary parking will be available in the CTRL Collective lot after 6 pm.

2016 AdTech Trends

Getting Underneath the Differences Between Adtech and Martech

Both marketing technology and advertising technology are evolving more rapidly than ever, creating new companies, categories and complexities throughout the digital marketing ecosystem.

The once high-flying adtech category has been pummeled in the public markets and overshadowed by a larger field of martech providers. Meanwhile, martech has found its way to the top of minds of B2B and B2C marketers, but what really are the major differences, how do they work together and why is knowing the distinctions so important for the next wave of growth of these multi-billion-dollar tech sectors? We’ll help you make sense of their interdependencies and relative value to building audiences and driving revenue during during our next LA AdTech meet-up.

Whether you’re a technologist, marketer, agency, publisher or entrepreneur, there will be something for you to learn (and hopefully to share) during this highly interactive and educational networking event.

In a salon format, our moderator and host, Tony Winders, will lead a discussion on the topic at WeWork Promenade onTuesday, March 22, 2016 from 6-8 pm. Bring your knowledge to share and eagerness to learn for this informative evening of networking and education around a topic dear to our hearts here at LA AdTech!
