Event Description
Media Attribution Panel

Join us on October 3 for an exciting discussion on media attribution! What is it? Why is it valuable? How does it change our media strategy? Hear from a cross-section of the marketing industry their viewpoints on attribution. Learn about how platforms, ISPs, agencies, and publishers approach attribution and what you need to keep in mind as media becomes more accountable even as the landscape continues to evolve.

Food will be provided before the event (5:30-6p) and the event will start promptly at 6p.

Meet our exceptional moderator and panelists:
