Beet Retreat in the City

It’s the #BeetRetreat in the City:
“We’re Going Local!”

August 7/NYC

“Going Local: Addressable TV Comes of Age”

A Beet.TV Leadership Summit and Industry Networking Event
hosted by GroupM Worldwide, sponsored by
Amobee, Comcast Spotlight, TVSquared and WideOrbit 

Local media is hot: Cable and satellite companies and national programmers are creating an increasingly attractive, segmented, local  marketplace. 

This dynamic marketplace, for both national and local advertisers, is being powered by several factors including widespread adoption of household and device addressability, linear optimization, an explosion in VOD offerings and new inventory unlocked by station operators along with inventory from national programmers, distributors and a new wave of “virtual” MVPD’s. 

As this media matures, new forms of attribution and performance measurement are making this increasingly attractive to buyers. 

This “lighting up” of local media is a transformative moment for addressable TV.

The Event

A half-half day program will explore these topics in panels and interviews to be published and widely shared by Beet.TV.  Here is the agenda
