The pandemic has dramatically accelerated consumers’ migration to digital media and e-commerce, and marketers are challenged to adjust their strategies to meet their customers where they are. Other developments including the demise of the cookie, new data privacy laws and rising consumer expectations for transparency and choice in how their data is accessed by marketers are making things even more complicated. Focusing on what companies should do to ensure their ads are making a valuable impact during this uncertain transition, and beyond, Research Wonks and DISQO are convening a panel of industry experts for an informative and interactive summit on advertising ROI measurement.

“Savvy brands realize that the key to their success is how well they know and understand their customers and their advertising ROI, but they also recognize that future-proofing their consumer identity strategy may not be quickly or easily fixed,” says Rick Bruner, CEO & Head Wonk, Research Wonks. “Our esteemed panelists, each an admired innovator in media research, will tackle the issues head on to explore available options.
