Tackling Ad Blocking | Leveraging Live Video | Reaching Consumers.
June 14 | 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. | Edison Ballroom, NYC
The Cablefax Marketing Forum on June 14, is an intensive mid-day event exploring strategies to reach consumers as they increasingly avoid traditional advertising & marketing messages, and rely more heavily on social media and word-of-mouth.
Whether it’s reaching consumers who increasingly skip and block traditional advertising or using new social media tools like Facebook Live and Periscope to cut through the noise, this forum will challenge assumptions and suggest new tactics as programmers and distributors navigate the changing TV ecosystem.

10:45 – 11:15 a.m. – Registration and Networking
11:15 – 12:00 p.m. – Skipping, Blocking and Jumping: How to Reach the Unreachable Consumer
Not only can customers block pre-roll and other ads from digital and mobile environments, but the FCC’s new set-top proposal could even open up a new world of overlays in which third parties obscure or outright block ads already running in the traditional TV space.
And how does all of this affect traditional VOD now that most VOD content providers disable fast-forward functionality? Will consumers learn to accept the ads as a necessary part of the on-demand experience or simply migrate to other platforms where they can still skip them?
In this session we’ll discuss:
- How savvy brands, programmers and distributors are finding success in this new era.
- The role of social media and earned media as companies forge deeper relationships with customers and viewers.
- How changing consumer behavior will change in the future.
- How better targeting can improve overall reach.
12:00 – 1:30 p.m. – Brainstormify Lunch
