HOLLYWOOD, Florida – The year 2017 will see WPP’s Xaxis increasingly focus on performance outcomes for its clients’ video ad campaigns. “Every campaign that we will run will have a KPI that is considered very important to the advertiser that we will achieve,” says David J. Moore, who is President of WPP Digital and Chairman of Xaxis.

Moore is one of many industry leaders who will gather in New York on March 9 at the Beet.TV Leadership Summit titled Outcomes: Connecting Video Ad Spend To Sales. The event is sponsored by outcome-based video marketing provider Eyeview.

In an interview with Beet.TV at the IAB Annual Leadership Meeting, Moore notes that one neglected aspect of “the fantastic growth of digital over the last ten years” has been creative.

“And what we have now seen is a whole host of creative management platforms, as well as dynamic creative optimization companies that provide one more way for us to optimize a campaign,” Moore says.

Alas, most of this creative customization has been relegated to display ads. “Today video is not being put together on the fly in order to create an ad specific for a user. That will happen in the future,” Moore predicts.

“Right now, most of the video renditions tend to be downloaded overnight into a cable box or made available in some other fashion,” he adds. “However, over the next few years you will see video become an increasingly important part of the dynamic creative optimization marketplace.”

Among the speakers joining Moore on March 6 at the Andaz 5th Avenue for the Beet.TV Outcomes Leadership Summit are: Lisa Archambault, Senior Director, Global Advertising, Caesars Entertainment Corporation; Tal Chalozin, CTO and Co-Founder, Innovid; Brad Danaher, Television Partnership Director, Experian; Andrew Davis, Founder, Monumental Shift; Bob Estrada, EVP & Director of Strategic Partnerships, BBDO New York; Andrew Feigenson, Chief Revenue Officer, Nielsen Catalina Solutions; Oren Harnevo, CEO, Eyeview; Rebecca Lieb, Advisory Board Member, Netswitch Technology Management Inc. and OneSpot; Joanna O’Connell, Chief Marketing Officer, MediaMath; Matt Prohaska, CEO & Principal, Prohaska Consulting; Tom Rogers, Executive Chairman, WinView Games, Chairman and CEO, TRget Media; and David Shim, Founder and CEO, Placed.
