The seismic shift by the viewing audience from single screen TV to multi-screen video has caused explosive growth in online video advertising. Recent headline acquisitions and announcements around video ad technology by companies like Facebook, Yahoo and AOL are strong indicators that foundational changes are occurring. But what are the implications for local marketing? And where does Google, with its video market leader, YouTube, sit in all this? And finally, how can your company—whether you’re an agency, a brand or a SMB service company—seize the competitive and cost advantages in this exploding market? Find out the answers to these questions and more in our September 18 dinner presentation.
