The Rise of Branded Video: Who’s Watching and Why, a Beet.TV Leadership Summit in Chicago on October 8, presented by Jun Group

Branded video has emerged as the hottest marketing approach for advertisers. At the recent Cannes Festival, the “branded entertainment” track was the fastest growing with submissions. Media agencies, creative shops and new boutiques are lining up to produce digital-specific video content.

But in the midst of this expansion, there are questions and challenges: how and where does that content get published, discovered, and consumed? How do brands make sure their content reaches the right audience? And how do we calculate ROI on the heavy investment in custom content?

These  and related topics will be explored in a three-hour, high-level summit produced by Beet.TV  The event will involve 12 senior level agency, brand and publishing executives.   All participants will be featured in 8 minute fireside chats and rapid fire panels.  All videos will be produced for Beet.TV and for wide syndication.

The event is being sponsored by Jun Group.
