Kristi Argyilan, the pioneering advanced advertising executive who has launched Target’s media platform called Roundel, will be one of the keynote speakers at the BeetRetreat, an executive retreat in San Juan, February 5-7.

The other keynote speakers are Cadreon’s Erica Schmidt, DISH’s Kevin Arrix, NBCU’s Dominick Vangeli, 605’s Noah Levine and Tubi’s Farhad Massoudi

We interviewed Argyilan recently at Advertising Week in New York.   We have republished the the video on this post.

The conference in Puerto Rico will explore how consumer preference is driving the transformation of the TV/premium video business. It will focus on relevance: on what consumers want: What is the value exchange and where is the upside for programmers, distributors and marketers.

The program will explore creative advertising formats and strategies; direct-to-consumer strategies, the best use of data in audience targeting; addressable delivery; and performance measurement. The program will explore developments in the U.S. and worldwide.
