Ryan Reed to Speak at 2017 Programmatic Summit

April 3, 2017

Lotame’s Director of Innovation, Ryan Reed, will be speaking in a panel at the Programmatic Summit on June 13th in NYC.

The Programmatic Summit is a two-day conference offering attendees the opportunity to learn and share best practices around the often confusing road towards television’s programmatic future. The Summit will highlight models, case studies, strategies, and solutions for programmatic TV success, across key functions of the TV & video value chain, including ad planning/buying, ad sales/inventory management, data/audience measurement, creative playout, and the technologies that promise to improve all of them.

Reed will be speaking on a panel devoted to Data Applications & Audience Targeting for TV. Ryan is well suited to this discussion, given his involvement in the development of Lotame’s aiTV, a solution that bridges the gap in television advertising by bringing rich audience targeting options to television stations and advertisers. Reed has been the driving force behind Lotame’s Smart TV audience segments and aiTV, and will be addressing the state of TV advertising and where we plan to take it.

The panel will focus how both sides of the advertising equation are changing their operations for more data-driven value propositions and results, given the abundance of first- and third-party data available to both advertisers and TV/video content providers.

Other panelists joining Ryan will be:

  • Jessica Hindlian, GTM, TV & Cross Channel Lead, LiveRamp
  • John Hoctor, CEO/Founder, Data+Math            
  • Andre Swanston, CEO/Founder, Tru Optik                                 
  • Ben Tatta, President, 605

As the event is scheduled to take place just after the TV industry’s annual Upfront and digital video Newfront presentations, the Programmatic Summit will offer attendees and sponsors a dynamic, conversational forum — laser focused on the important practical issues at stake in television’s programmatic evolution.

The panel will take place at 11:10am. For a complete agenda, visit the event website.
