Our first Media Ad Sales Summit Candid Conversation was one for the books! Focused on "Addressable Advertising", this 40-minute,conversation delved into the topic once seen as an unachievable Holy Grail. We discussed how its ability to more finely target TV/video audiences in data-driven addressable environments is rapidly approaching economically attractive scale and technically dependable execution. With a stellar panel of insightful industry leaders, the conversation was moderated by Matrix's own Brenda Hetrick and she was joined by Kim Kelleher (President, Advertising Sales & Partnerships, AMC Networks), Gina Mingioni (SVP Strategy & Operations, Comcast), and Kelly Abcarian (General Manager, Nielsen Advanced Video Advertising Group, Nielsen).
