The Agenda for the
2017 TAtech Leadership Summit

Programmatic Ad Buying Applications.  This track will address real world applications of programmatic ad buying in three important segments of the economy – retail, transportation and gig enterprises – using case studies, presentations and panels to tap the insights of employers, agencies, publishers and marketing experts for lessons learned, best practices, potential obstacles and achievable benefits.

Programmatic Ad Buying Technology.  This track will examine the current state of programmatic ad buying in talent acquisition and provide insights on the technological and business challenges and opportunities it offers to employers, publishers, recruitment advertising agencies, recruitment marketing firms and data and analytics companies.  There will also be in-depth discussions of lessons learned from past as well as ongoing implementations and the need for industry-wide definitions and standards to promote full and effective adoption of the technology.
