PREMIUM PASS ONLY: What CMOs Need to Know About the Blockchain

Hosted by Kochava

tuesday, April 24, 2018

12:45 PM - 1:55 PM

Sheraton Times Square

Premium Lounge

This session is reserved for Premium Passholders only. Lunch will be served in the Premium Lounge and briefing will begin by 1:15pm.

Traditional advertising was built on the role of the “middleman,” in which companies relied on agencies, networks, websites, and platforms to distribute targeted messages to their most relevant consumers. As marketing has become more complex and data-driven with advent and maturation of digital media, these intermediary partners have proliferated. Given all of the disparate groups, each with their own interests and objectives, the ad industry has faced a series of challenges as of late with respect to transparency and efficiency.

If one of the fundamental challenges plaguing senior marketers is transparency and an overly distributed process for creating, buying, and selling ads, then the blockchain and its decentralized technology could stand to disrupt the advertising world in powerful ways.

In this CMO Lunch Briefing, hosted by Kochava, attendees will hear from two leading experts on the subject of Blockchain and how it is going to transform marketing:

  • Charles Manning, CEO of Kochava
  • Brian Wong, CEO of Kiip
