Beet Video Advertising Summit: “Life Beyond the Pre-Roll,” August 6 at Mindshare, NYC, Presented by Ebuzzing & Teads

Since the very dawn of Web video, in-stream advertising  has dominated the medium. Now, forced by consumer demand, device proliferation and a changing marketplace where buyers and sellers demand more quality views around premium content, the industry is moving beyond the pre-roll.

Advertisers and publishers are embracing other platforms and revenue streams.  These include “native” ad units, “in-page” units and an entire new world of mobile and IPTV delivered television advertising.

The state of “Life Beyond the Pre-Roll” will the subject of a three-hour Beet.TV industry leadership summit held at the New York offices of Mindshare on Wednesday, August 6 from 9:00 a.m. to noon.  Hosted by Mindshare and presented by the company Ebuzzing & Teads, the program will feature 10 senior agency executives and publishers  in a series of fireside chats and brief panel discussions.

The entire program is being produced for video distribution by Beet.TV
