With the third-party cookie on its way out and privacy-first strategies top of mind for CMOs, contextual advertising has enjoyed a resurgence.

The Innovation Factory Stage
3:30PM - 4:00PM

Americans spend close to four and a half hours a day using their mobile devices, according to eMarketer – close to an hour more than they spend watching linear TV. Not only is around 90% of this time spent using apps, but Americans will spend close to $360 billion via mobile.

So this begs the question: Are you selling where Americans are buying? With adults in the U.S. now increasingly turning to mobile to shop, search, chat, stream and so much more – and with time spent on mobile growing in 2021 – it pays to be mobile first.

In this session, we will highlight the emerging importance of mobile and apps and discuss the various ways you can better understand, identify, engage and acquire today’s mobile-first consumers.
