Description: One look at today’s packed LUMAscape and it is clear that Programmatic is not a buzz word – it’s an essential part of digital media. With everything from display to native being bought and sold programmatically it’s no wonder search sometimes feels left out. The reality is that search was the first medium to embrace programmatic; it pioneered many of the practices embraced by the agency community, publishers, clients and vendors. As one of the first trusted tactics on any media plan it’s important to know what is search doing to keep up in a data driven world where “remarketing,” “targeting” and “attribution” impact every campaign.

Come and join the conversation as our diverse panel of clients, agency and search vendors discuss how search has evolved from a “check the box” tactic and a mechanism for searching for cat video’s into an integral piece of all media campaigns.

This event also qualifies for IAB Re-certification. IAB Re-certification programs establish and measure the baseline digital industry knowledge required for digital advertising professionals. Created by industry subject matter experts and a leading test development company, the certification programs are managed by an independent Certification Commission.
