Although these ad units can be troublesome because they rely too heavily on Google's All Products target, using broad product targeting and guessing at initial bids for new products are not the quick fixes they appear to be. Find out how Adobe Media Optimizer portfolio bid optimisation and sparse data modelling can improve your PLA performance.

Industry analysts forecast that Western European brands will spend over $4.4 billion on mobile advertising by 2016. Yet this spend level represents only a minor share of the total digital ad spend. Given consumers' adoption and use of smartphones and tablets, the imbalance between media time spent and advertising is clearly an industry problem. However, some marketers are moving forward with mobile-specific campaigns and seeing success with mobile ads in driving customer acquisition.

The analytics landscape is evolving towards more data, more complexity and, hopefully, more insights. What was known as "web analytics" a few years ago is now "digital analytics", incorporating more than just the web. "Predictive analytics" are just around the corner. But will "customer analytics" be the next big step? Will it save those of us who embrace the change?

Consumers expect—and want—highly relevant digital experiences, but many are suspicious of being targeted because they've encountered poor experiences before. Marketers are challenged to offer compelling and relevant content that provides customer experience satisfaction while meeting key business objectives. Learn how you can utilise your consumer and performance data to deliver tailored, personalised experiences that resonate with your visitors and drive conversion.
Consumers are often overwhelmed with irrelevant content and frustrated when they cannot easily find what they want or need. Digital marketers find it challenging to engage a diverse array of visitors on a personal level and present a tailored, functional path through their web or mobile site to successful conversion. They must quickly identify and deliver the most relevant, engaging experience at each critical point of interaction throughout a customer's journey. We know, we know—easier said than done. But by the end of this session, you will have 10 tips and tricks to make personalization easier and more effective.
Is your content more valuable and relevant than your competitors? Do you find yourself competing on price wars online? Instead of joining this rat race, differentiate through a great mobile experience that no one can match. Launching an app successfully involves more than great design and coding.

Creating and managing content that drives brand awareness and customer demand is challenging. Coupling that with the need to create personalised experiences across a mobile or social channel is an entirely different ball game. Marketers are scrambling to achieve a competitive advantage and get a leg up on the competition. Discover first-hand the top-10 marketing must haves that all content marketers and strategists need to get ahead of the competition and how Adobe Experience Manager can make your brand shine.

H.B. Beal Secondary School has been the major technical secondary school in London, Ontario, Canada since the year 1912. In that time, Beal has established itself as being at the forefront of practical, hands-on education. The school has always welcomed those eager to learn, even those whom other schools discarded. For over 50 years, Beal has also been the leader in Broadcasting Education across Southwestern Ontario. However, recently, due to limited funding and an economy that is getting poorer and poorer, Beal’s broadcasting program, “BTV”, is falling behind. In order to prevent this, BTV is teaming up with local news station, Rogers TV, to create a show for youth, about youth, and produced by youth. This is quite exciting for the students enrolled in the program, but with funds being at their current level, the show seems due to fail. Both those at Beal and those at Rogers TV believe that this youth-oriented television show is vital to improving conditions in a city with a 9.1% unemployed rate (2% more than the Canadian average). At Beal, approximately 25% of the student population is high-risk, and almost 5% of the students live on their own (the highest across the school board). With tv segments that will talk about youth issues such as drug abuse, food preparation, and mental health issues, we believe that we can be a great aid to these students as well as youth all across the viewership.
Marc Lewis, pioneer of London’s new school dedicated to the art of advertising, will be joined by students in a look at the school’s innovative approach to learning. Students are mentored by award winners, a three year course is squeezed into one, and the focus is on ideas and creativity over execution.
