IAB Mobile Marketplace 2015


New York · 03.30.15

b1The seventh annual IAB Mobile Marketplace got off to an exciting start with Anna Bager, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobile and Video at IAB, reflecting on how mobile has changed over the years. More than just devices and tools, mobile has become about how we live our lives. However, as mobile has become everything, the question of whether it is irrelevant to focus separately on mobile has been posed. Bager pointed out there are still many mobile specific challenges that the industry needs to tackle and, as a result, mobile is not redundant yet. She closed her talk by making a couple of announcements from the Mobile Center of Excellence: the launch of a video addendum to MRAID to help video mobile ads scale and the release of the third edition of the Marketer Perceptions of Mobile Advertising survey results.

m1Next up Jeff Malmad, Head of Mobile and Life+ at Mindshare North America, set the stage for the day by discussing how mobile is defined today. Malmad emphasized that we are currently in the third wave of digital advertising—adaptive mobility. We are in the pipeline and to make it relevant there are three things that we must do to ensure mobile first: leverage location, embrace sensors, and create context. More and more, mobile is the first place where the new generation is touching brands, and the time spent there is significant. Ultimately data is what ties everything together and it is important to understand how to leverage it.

Following Malmad’s keynote, Bager turned the stage over to Joe Laszlo, Senior Director, Mobile Marketing Center of Excellence at IAB, who highlighted some statistics from the just released Marketer Perceptions of Mobile Advertising – Third Edition study by IAB and Ovum.

Andrew HoffmanAndrew Hoffman, Vice President, Mobile Marketing at Mobext, Ned Newhouse, Executive Director, Mobile & Native at Condé Nast and Co-Chair of the Tablet Advertising Committee at IAB, and Douglas Wiesen, Account Director at Joule, took to the stage to share examples of effective mobile creative. Newhouse stressed that the opportunity with mobile is significantly better than passively watching TV, and now is the time for change. Ads must earn and reward consumers’ attention. The three presenters then made a call to action for everyone to embrace creative, test and learn, and innovate.

k1Continuing on the theme of compelling mobile creative and experiences, Ken Todd, Vice President, Digital Content Syndication & Mobile Development at Showtime Networks, Inc., was on stage next to share how Showtime has created groundbreaking and effective ad campaigns. Showtime’s motto is to break the spec in mobile advertising, and Todd shared examples of creative that ranged from adapting to the user environment to calls to action custom-developed for the mobile device. He went on to say that Showtime was careful not to disrupt the experience but always strived to immerse the consumer in a memorable experience, and urged the audience to do the same.

ii1The challenging topic of Mobile Measurement was tackled next with George Ivie, Chief Executive Officer, Executive Director at Media Rating Council, and Richy Glassberg, Chief Operating Officer at Medialets. They discussed where the market is headed with the most pressing challenge in the mobile space—clear, consistent metrics. Ivie reemphasized that viewability is the first stage of the process and since mobile is a very different environment, many of the tools that are used for desktop measurement and standards need to be redesigned. The priorities of the MRC right now are to assess the feasibility of mobile technology and then study how users are interacting with devices. Ivie closed with a strong call to action for the industry to work with the MRC to study these unique mobile environments, contribute to standards, and volunteer data from campaigns.

c1Following a networking refreshment break, participants enjoyed deep-dive workshops dedicated to these topics: Ads for Apps, The Keys to Successful Mobile Monetization, and The Future of Yield Management in Mobile Advertising. The general session reconvened with Gabriel Cheng, Vice President, Mobile Strategy and Solutions at M&C Saatchi Mobile, continuing the discussion about mobile measurement and digital engagement across owned and earned platforms. With digital audiences becoming more fragmented, Cheng pointed out how it is increasingly difficult to map all devices back to a single user. The cookie is no longer reliable and while paid media has made advances with measurement, we are still in the early days with earned and owned media. Cheng ended his talk by offering the audience suggestions for how to improve and breakdown data silos.

t1Continuing on the theme of cross-screen consumption, Mark Trefgarne, Co-Founder of LiveRail and Product Director at Facebook, came on stage next. He stated that the biggest challenge of cross-device advertising is figuring out how to understand the person, not just the device. And with more time spent in mobile than TV, we need to come up with new solutions to address the new times. Trefgarne highlighted flaws with measurement and how, ultimately, people-based marketing was the way of the future to bridge the gaps between online and offline, and accurately and confidently measure mobile.

i1After Trefgarne’s talk, Drew Ianni, Chief Executive Officer, Event Chairman at M2 Events, sat down for a fireside chat with Kirt Thomson, General Manager of New Business at StubHub. Thomson addressed how StubHub is embracing new content and trying to change the perception of the traditional e-commerce business. He then shared some creative examples of how StubHub embraces people where they are used to going and delivers the right content to their users.

tt1Following a networking luncheon where the group was asked to help inform IAB about the biggest challenges and opportunities in the mobile space, participants reconvened for a conversation about mobile programmatic with Ravi Pahilajani, Partner, Senior Director, Digital at MEC, and Julienne Thompson, Vice President, Programmatic Business at Millennial Media. Pahilajani discussed how mobile is driving growth in RTB ad spend and how programmatic helps us gain a lot of efficiencies. He went on to say how there are still a number of measurement challenges and emphasized the importance of not just gathering data but understanding what to do with it to identify users.

mm1Two case studies on Mobile Audio and Video that explored the shift in content consumption were presented next. Karina Montgomery, Vice President, Strategic Sales Development at Pandora, shared how consumers were having a renaissance with audio and how three companies used unique ad offerings on Pandora to intercept a need state, personify a brand, and attract new clients. Isaac Showman, Founder, Managing Director at Reuters TV, followed with a presentation about the increasing demands of in-app video news and how Reuters had re-created TV news for a new group of consumers by focusing on being on-demand, up-to-date, mobile, authentically editorial, and social.

After the case studies, participants broke up into two deep-dive tracks dedicated to Cross-Screen & Local and Mobile Creative.

s1For the final keynote of the day, David Sable, Global Chief Executive Officer at Y&R, spoke about the importance of thinking about people first, not mobile first, and sat down with Randall Rothenberg, President and CEO at IAB, to discuss creativity at Y&R. He emphasized that digital is everything but that not everything is digital, and cited many examples of ‘Digibabble’—the use of the word digital as a modifier to anything giving the illusion of new. Sable said that as the world becomes more digital it is important to remember the following: humanity over algorithms; storytelling trumps; content, connection, and convergence; the generation world; and learn from the past as we build for the future.

The conference came to a close with participants breaking out for town hall conversations—an opportunity to engage one another in spirited discussion and debate—while enjoying drinks. The hot topics addressed were reaching people and not devices, and connecting to audiences through mobility data.

TV News Reinvented: The Increasing Demands of In-App Video News
Explore the opportunities that this industry disruption presents to advertisers, industry innovators and consumers.

The business of TV is changing at a furious pace. Consumers are more likely to hear about breaking news from a mobile phone alert rather than from a 24-hour news channel—and social media is a critical component of the content experience.  Authentic, relevant content is placed at a new premium as viewers are bombarded by experiences across a multitude of screens. This case study will examine how these seismic industry shifts, coupled with surging demand for mobile video content, have disrupted the traditional TV news experience.

Reach People, Not Devices
Room 404, 4th Floor

Today’s consumer is using multiple devices to browse, research, engage, and shop. In fact, most of us are already using mobile devices to buy clothes, deposit checks, and track our workouts. Accordingly, in a world that is increasingly becoming “mobile first,” smartphones and other mobile devices are driving the uptick in cross-channel engagement. Savvy marketers are beginning to realize this, and many of them are allocating at least half of their digital marketing budgets to cross-channel advertising. However, it’s not just about reaching devices, that’s only part of the picture. It’s about reaching people.

  • How do advanced cross channel solutions give marketers a unified view of their customer, regardless of media channel or connected gadget?
  • What is the best way to use geo-targeting to find the right consumer, at the right place?
  • Going Cross-Channel is how you reach the right person, on the right channel, on the right device, at the right time—what are some of the best ways to approach a cross-channel campaign?

  • David Sable
  • Global Chief Executive Officer
  • Y&R

“Do it big, or stay in bed.”

That’s David’s belief, and it says it all — why bother if you can’t do it right?

David Sable became Global CEO of Y&R in February 2011, but Y&R has long been in his blood. He joined the Y&R training program in 1976, and he credits this induction into the business as the foundation for much of what he has done in his life.

He went on to Wells Rich Greene, working on Procter & Gamble, and then to Miller Advertising to work on Kinney Shoes, before moving to Israel. There he cofounded an agency, which reinforced his entrepreneurial spirit and was his first foray into high tech.

David rejoined the Y&R family on his return to the U.S., working for both Burson-Marsteller and Cohn & Wolfe, counseling great clients like Colgate-Palmolive, Digital Equipment Corporation and Coca-Cola. He came back to Y&R Advertising in 1990, to lead the global portion of Colgate-Palmolive and then helped to win the United States Postal Service consolidated account, for whom, among other things, David and his team built the industry’s very first client website, won the first-ever interactive television award and created a logo that is still in use today.

David believes that the core of our business is about striking a balance between creativity — the storytelling we do — and innovation, which drives the story through the right channels to create new consumer experiences. This has always been true, of course, and Y&R has been a pioneer in developing media, but digital has changed everything once again.

In the early days of the Internet, as a cofounder of Genesis Direct, Y&R created a direct-to-fan Internet presence for the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, the National Football League and the National Basketball Association, leveraging the consumer’s buying preferences between analog-catalogue, brick-and-mortar and digital retail. In doing so, the power and persuasion of digital started to gain recognition and take its place in the consumer equation.

When David joined Wunderman, where he spent 10 years as Vice Chairman and COO, his biggest task was building on the company’s heritage as a data-based marketer and showing that it is data that drives marketing, not simply one channel. As a result, he helped transform the agency into one of the world’s leading digital networks.

At Y&R, David sees the greatest competitive differentiator to be the agency’s ability to create a complete experience for consumers that bridges the detail and physical worlds. While digital is everything, not everything is digital, and Y&R is eminently positioned as storytellers and innovators.

David has a strong online presence: he has been blogging since 2006, writing The Weekly Ramble, and has also written for Google Think Insights and Fast Company. He is a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post and LinkedIn and his views have been featured in many publications including Advertising Age, Adweek, Forbes, Yahoo! and Microsoft Advertising.

David believes it is important to be active in the industry.
