Cannes 2023 AdTech panels

Industry leaders across the advertising industry gathered in the French Riviera for the 2023 Cannes Lions Festival. We hosted four panels during the week to discuss the current state of advertising, where it's headed, and the increasing importance of data and identity in marketing. Join the conversation by watching the panel recordings below. 

Adweek panel: Stacking the marketer’s toolbox for success

Juliette Morris, CEO at Adweek, moderates a conversation between Jeremy Hlavacek, CCO at Experian, Laura Jones, CMO at Instacart, Nicole Parlapiano, CMO at Tubi, and Soo Jin Oh, CSO at FreeWheel.

Ongoing signal loss has accelerated a new emphasis on first-party data. Complementary to first-party data, behavioral and digital identity also remain fundamental assets in any marketer’s toolbox. These combined assets provide opportunities for brands to unlock deeper, richer and more scalable insights into current – and potential – customers.  Listen to the conversation exploring how a mix of signals helps to define and engage audiences, inject creativity into the overall customer experience, and influence ad inventory and delivery within a brand’s ecosystem to spur business growth.

We explore the opportunities and challenges of using first-party data to improve targeting and measurement and the implications for data ownership and transparency.

We also explore the latest technologies and data-driven strategies for improving advertising opportunities. Lastly, we examine how partners strive to strike a balance between transparency and control in programmatic ad buying.
