IRI Examines Digital Advertising and TV Ad-Buying at LiveRamp’s RampUp 2018 Conference


Nishat Mehta, President, Media Center of Excellence, IRI®
JP Beauchamp, Principal, Media COE, IRI

On March 5, IRI’s JP Beauchamp will present a session with Bridget Brett, head of TV operations for LiveRamp, and John Hoctor, CEO of Data Plus Math. During their session, “Audience-Based TV Buying,” Beauchamp, Brett and Hoctor will discuss what is and is not resonating with consumers and how companies can leverage those discrepancies. Using data, they will examine consumer tastes and how companies can serve consumers the best ads possible.

The following day, IRI’s Nishat Mehta will present a session on digital advertising with Cision CEO Kevin Akeroyd. During their session, “Unifying Your Digital Advertising,” they will reveal how simple but powerful changes can create better experiences for consumers and better outcomes for companies.

Ad buyers and analysts have a lot of on-the-ground insights, but consequently are so in the weeds of individual channels and metrics that more strategic consumer journeys and cross-channel messages aren’t implemented as well as they could be. These sessions will discuss how advertisers can break down silos while serving consumers targeted, relevant ads.
