Whither Goest Thou, Television Advertising? (with Apologies to Jack Kerouac)On Wednesday, September 9th, this 45 minute session with iTV Dr.Rick Howe moderating featured a panel of execs on the agency buy-side, AdTech, and media owner on the sell-side. They generally agreed that the pandemic upended the status quo, and that Q3 was seeing a resurgence in television advertising.
The panelists for this session include:
- Tal Chalozin, CTO, Innovid
- Rick Howe, The iTV Doctor (Moderator)
- Jo Kinsella, President, TVSquared
- Steve Reynolds, President, Imagine Communications
- Scott Stansfield, Founder, Centriply
- Evan Tracey, Founder, NMRPP

As always, the discussion touched on how to measure return on investment in TV, and the conclusion was that it's happening already. A view of the horizon reiterated the existing, but pandemic-accelerated, need to focus on speed of response in planning and placing spots, using technology from players like Centriply to compete successfully. To satisfy advertisers' need for an integrated view of media performance across multi-channel campaigns, more and more technology is being deployed to remove the friction from the process and apply successful attribution of TV impressions, delivering metrics advertisers need now and in the future.
