New York, NY & Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 10, 2014
TripleLift, the native advertising technology platform for the visual web, today announced it has partnered with the Digital Media Review (DMR), the organization dedicated to finding the innovation that helps advertisers win at market, to host the first annual Visual Marketing Summit. Kicking off in New York City on June 3, and continuing in Chicago on June 13, these intimate roundtable conversations will bring together some of the industry’s most forward-thinking leaders in marketing, advertising and publishing.
The summits will address two of the bigger macro trends in the online ad industry of late, the shift to image-centric web design and the growth of native advertising. Everyday, websites systematically move away from text-heavy layouts and leverage big, beautiful visuals as the focus of their sites. As the visual web becomes the new standard, publishers are seeking more integrated native advertising experiences to monetize this new inventory. But are advertisers ready? Executives from UM, MRY, Business Insider, SMV, Mindshare, Leo Burnett, and Spark, will explore the relationship between design, technology and marketing, as well as share real-world examples of how brands are integrating visual content into their advertising strategies.
Attendees of the Visual Marketing Summit will learn:
“The visual web has created a new opportunity for marketers to engage their audience,” said Ari Lewine, chief strategy officer of TripleLift. “Brands already have great visual content at their disposal; integrating this same visual content in their ad campaigns and making it look and feel like the content on a given Web page will help combat banner blindness by delivering more dynamic, viewable ads. At the same time, the industry needs to understand that a viable alternative exists and how to execute. The Visual Marketing Summit is sure to spark some important and smart conversations by some of the industry’s most innovative thinkers.”
Each breakfast conversation will kick off with data-driven keynotes from industry leaders at the forefront of the visual web evolution. In New York City, Jonathan Perelman, VP, Industry Development at Buzzfeed will talk about the future of social advertising in a visual world. Chicago’s event will feature comScore’s VP of Marketing and Insights, Andrew Lipsman discussing the current state of the visual web and its implications for the evolving social, mobile and native advertising markets.
