SM East Show: Advertising Spending, From Trickle to Torrent

The annual  $1B U.S. online video ad spend represents 1/60 of the overall U.S. TV ad spend, yet online video represents 1/7 of U.S. audience viewing time, a number that will likely grow to 1/5 over the next few years. What will it take for online video advertising to become a truly effective medium, with spending that reflects viewing times?

At the Streaming Media East show on May 11th and 12th, we've got a great session entitled "Advertising Spending: From Trickle to Torrent". Come hear what's right, what's wrong, and what will need to change if the industry hopes to make its 5-year forward growth projections.
