Thursday, March 14

2 p.m. EST/ 11 a.m. PST

Presented by the Women’s Leadership Council

 

Technology is revolutionizing the advertising business at an accelerated pace. From GEN AI to Web 3.0 and innovative ad tracking technologies, advertisers are finding new ways to create content, create and track audiences, and hyperpersonalize their advertising down to an individual level. This conversation — presented by the PDMI’s Women’s Leadership Council — will present a deep dive into what these new technologies are, how marketers are already using them, and how to minimize the legal risks associated with this evolving landscape. Join Linda Goldstein and Sarah LaVoi, partners at Baker Hostetler, and Leigh Zeiser, senior manager of BakerHostetler’s Incubaker team that has been at the forefront of helping businesses adapt to emerging and transformative technologies, for an inside look at what the future of advertising looks like and practical solutions for minimizing risk.
