Future TV Advertising 2013: TV unleashed - 
What the fusion of broadcast and digital means for television advertising across all screens

Future TV Advertising Forum 2013 is about taking the best of ‘TV’ and ‘digital’ to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of television advertising across all screens. The biggest focus is Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI) including what it means for all stakeholders, how we implement it in practice and what the DAI ecosystem needs to look like. It considers how the industry will manage more data-driven advertising and how we value and trade targeted audiences. The conference looks at new ways to buy and sell, including the role of Real-time Bidding (RTB) for premium video and there is a focus on multiscreen, notably how you unify and optimize cross-platform campaigns and advances in cross-platform measurement and trading. Time is also dedicated to Smart TV and second screen advertising.
