Session highlights include:
At the Intersection of Content and Marketing
The seemingly parallel streams of content and advertising are increasingly coming to a junction in the digital world, with branded content, native advertising and in-stream advertising in content feeds driving the merge. Federated Media founder and CEO John Battelle will dissect the situation and delineate paths to revenue success.

Coloring the Data Landscape Through Visualization
As the data collected and stores only grow and grow, visualization techniques are increasingly illuminating insight and narratives from within the vast swaths. Award-winning data visualist Giorgia Lupi of the firm Accurat will dive into the basics of visualization and detail how advertisers and publishers can use them to add color to their data efforts.

Connected Commerce: What's in Your Digital Wallet?
For decades now, advertising campaigns have been predicated on the notion of pushing messages, measuring responses statistically and adapting messages and tactics. The convergence of digital media and digital wallets are radically changing this dynamic, making possible a more direct and conversational approach with consumers. This session will outline eBay and PayPal's vision for a future of Connected Commerce that delivers higher consumer satisfaction and better advertiser results.
