Event description



Future of Television (Oct. 5) is now part of NYME with over 4,000 attendees participating over two days.

Future of Television is a 1-day event that is part of New York Media Festival’s (NYME) 2-day event series. The Future of Television is the leading event for senior representatives from television broadcasters, MCNs, digital studios, cable networks, digital distribution networks, brands, advertising firms, VCs, social networks, technology providers, analysts and press. Unlike some other industry events, Future of Television focuses on bringing together the people who really matter to meet in a lively yet intimate environment that allows access and privacy to build and grow relationships and partnerships.

Check Out Our Agenda Highlights for Future of Television @ NYME 2018

This panel of top decision-makers in the television, online video, advertising and technology industries discuss where America’s favorite medium is heading in terms of content and new digital distribution models and platforms. How do you engage, empower, connect and monetize audiences across platforms? How do the networks maintain their unparalleled national reach while at the same time capturing more desirable demographics and better measurable advertising results?

Advertisers today are increasingly demanding targeting, tracking and measurement across platforms–TV, PC, mobile, and out-of-home– and expecting demonstrable ROI on their ad spends that goes beyond awareness to consumer engagement and even direct sales. This panel will discuss the suite of benefits that brands are coming to expect from dynamic targeting, precise real-time metrics, contextual creative delivery and seamless sponsorship integration. How do analytics compare across systems without a common currency? Who owns the data and how is it packaged? How is media buying changing?

As brands continue to transition away from traditional advertising to digital marketing strategies, effective content has become essential to building and maintaining a loyal consumer base. Today, more than ever, brands need to produce engaging, shareable content to connect with consumers and stay at the top of their industry. This panel will provide examples of how brands are creating engaging content and building social community and the impact on customer relationships and brand loyalty.

This panel of experts in Over-the-Top (OTT) video monetization will discuss monetization strategies and techniques. What’s working and what not? What are the best strategies for monetizing video content in the OTT ecosystem.

This panel of executives and representatives working with digital influencers with significant followings will discuss how they work with brands, including different strategies such as sponsored posts versus contests versus public appearances. How do brands judge the success of these campaigns in terms of engagement – likes, comments, revines, etc.? What is the future of influencer marketing?
