Event Summary:

FCS San Francisco will stage its first breakfast event of 2020 with a very topical theme: the impact of streaming and digital on financial marketing and the continued evolutionary growth of traditional advertising.

When it comes to advertising, marketers need a multi-faceted approach to remain on the cutting edge of digitalization. Over the top (OTT) and streaming have gained traction with consumers and have emerged as an effective platform for advertisers -- with 65.3 million homes using connected TV. How are financial companies adapting to stay front-and-center with audiences?

We invite you to join leaders from financial services, streaming and digital media for a conversation about the intersection of financial services and emerging media platforms. The discussion will include: 

  • Current landscape for OTT advertising
  • Trends likely to gain momentum in 2020
  • Best practices for reaching a target audience
  • Audience Q&A

This is a sponsorable event; contact FCS CEO Kevin Windorf for details.
