Meet NASA smarts at the 41st FIPP World Congress

FIPP Congress London logo ()

At the 41st FIPP World Congress we will bring speakers together from a breadth of sectors and markets to share unique insights and perspectives with delegates – not only will there be leading industry-related case studies but also speakers to challenge comfort zones and make us think where we, as an industry, are heading.

US-based Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan, CEO and Founder of Drawbridge, a company solving the problem of cross-device identity in advertising, will be one of the speakers at the Congress. Investors in her company include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Sequoia Capital and Northgate Capital.

The 41st FIPP World Congress takes place from 9-11 October 2017 at the iconic Tobacco Docks in London, one of the world’s most welcoming cities. Discounted, pre-agenda registration for the Congress is now open. This is a limited offer and booking now will save you hundreds of pounds on final rates.

The unique distinction of her work being onboard NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto and the other planetary system is just one of Kamakshi’s distinctions. 

• Drawbridge was recently named as one of the 50 startups globally leading the AI revolution

• Kamakshi has been one of Business Insider’s 30 Most Powerful Women in Mobile Advertising for four consecutive years – most recently in 2016

• She received the Women of Vision ABIE Award for Technology Entrepreneurship from the Anita Borg Institute in 2015

• She is one of the San Francisco Business Times Most Admired CEOs

Kamakshi received her PhD in Information Theory and Algorithms from Stanford University. 

She is one of 51 speakers now confirmed for the Congress. Individual speaker topics will be refined as we get closer to the FIPP World Congress in October, but at this early stage the thinking is for her to explain how publishers and brands can exploit valuable opportunities in the ad market despite Facebook and Google’s duopoly in digital advertising.

Some 800 delegates from more than 40 markets are expected to attend the FIPP World Congress from 9-11 October (the speaker programme is on the 10th and 11th), most of them senior strategic and operational executives, and top rising media stars.

Apart from the Congress speaker programme, tickets will give you access to the opening ceremony on the 9th (informal, medieval London fun!), networking drinks on the 10th, bus transport to and from the venue at Tobacco Docks and selected Congress hotels, and of course (!) coffee and lunch during the two days of the main programme. For more, visit the Congress website.

To secure your place at our limited pre-agenda discounted rate, book today. Further savings are also available for delegations of 5 or more people. More information about that, as well as selecting this booking option if you so choose, is also available on the registration page. For more information, contact Claire Jones at Claire@fipp.com

We hope you will join us in London in October!

  • How to develop your chatbot strategy

    If you have Alexa, Amazon’s intelligent personal assistant, then you probably start your morning with a conversation with a chatbot. Because let’s admit it: chatbots are already everywhere. On the one hand, we love to hate them because they are, well, not human. On the other, we love to love them because they create an interactive and personalised experience. Brands have been quick to adopt this technology. Too many media companies lag behind experimenting in this field.

  • Video strategies for a visual world - with AJ+ and AwesomenessTV Unsurprisingly, a hot topic for many of the speakers at this year’s Digital Innovators’ Summit is audience engagement via video. On day one of the conference, Alan Saura, audience development strategist at AJ+, focused his talk on how to maximise audience engagement using video and social media. Meanwhile, chief digital officer at AwesomenessTV, Kelly Day, explained how the company harnesses the unique attributes of Generation-Z (those aged between two and 21 at present) to create content that really speaks to this young but powerful audience. 20th Mar 2017 MagWorld
  • Monetising content - from distribution to subscription Diversifying revenue streams is naturally on top of the to do list of the execs of most publishers. It is a topic that was widely covered at DIS 2017 with a number of speakers addressing the issue of monetisation from a number of differing perspectives on Day 1 and Day 2. 21st Mar 2017 MagWorld
