LA AdTech Panel: Ad Tech in Entertainment

On March 31st, LA AdTech is hosting a panel focussing on the advertising technology currently being employed by the Entertainment industry (theatrical releases, home entertainment, music download and concert ticket sales, etc). The panelists represent ad tech companies that are currently working with the Entertainment industry.


While the objectives of entertainment marketers have remained consistent over the years (tune-in, box office, trailer views, on-demand sales, etc.), the media and technology options to reach their audiences have not. Ads are increasingly sold programmatically, media consumption is migrating to mobile and consumers are increasingly relying on the recommendations of friends to inform their entertainment choices.

The industry’s foremost digital marketing experts use a wide range of solutions to engage consumers, from new forms of dynamic ad creative to sophisticated data management systems, influencer marketing programs, native advertising and more. Hear from these experts about what advertising technology tools and tactics are working best to drive engagement and sales for major entertainment brands in 2015.
