It helps to understand the ever-changing digital landscape—especially in this time of data disruption. You’ve worked hard to put your digital plan in place, but as the ecosystem consolidates, what does that mean for you? What you’ll learn: What’s new in martech and what isn’t? What can you do to insure your digital plan is future-proof and get the tools to help you along that planning process?


Advanced Use Cases with LiveRamp IdentityLink

You understand onboarding and the value of tying your data back to people to target audiences, personalize experiences, and measure those efforts. Now what? In this workshop, you’ll learn: the emerging opportunities of 2nd-party data partnerships and real-time bidding with a Universal ID.


Getting Started with Identity Resolution

Emerging as its own category of marketing technology, identity resolution is key to marketing on a people-based level, and therefore key to enhancing your customer’s experience. What you’ll learn: In this workshop, you’ll learn the crawl, walk, and fly approach to identity resolution.


Activation with LiveRamp IdentityLink for TV

Meeting the Demand for the Universal ID

The industry wants to activate campaigns on a people-based level everywhere they are advertising.

Data Ethics: Powering Innovation through Data Governance, Protection, and Privacy

Designed for privacy and legal teams that sit inside of brands, this workshop will give those teams a first-hand view of an onboarding workflow and which categories of data can be used for marketing activation in a safe environment, all while managing risk.


Measurement Not Just for the Sake of Measurement

In a world of distracted consumers and increasingly complex consumer purchasing paths, marketing measurement is even more challenging. Forward-thinking marketers are turning to advanced measurement strategies to enhance their marketing efforts. What you’ll learn: the crawl, walk, and run (closed-loop to multi-touch attribution) approach to a measurement strategy.
