2:15-2:55 PM 4A'S CENTENNIAL STAGE The Changing Technology- Brand-Agency Relationship: Disruption Ahead Agencies are undergoing massive change. New technology has made it clear that media buying and campaign optimization are commodities; ones better handled by machines that can adjust by-the-second. A new crop of ad tech is the great enabler of this, but it's not rendering agencies extinct - it's just catapulting them into a new role. This panel will help brands gain an understanding of what technology enables them to do on their own and where they can gain the most value from agency relationships.
