The U.S. media community is grappling with unprecedented complexity and change in the planning and research methods used to expedite marketers’ communications programs. To bring order to what sometimes seems like chaos, the ARF is holding its first 360 Measurement Day Workshop.

Notice: ARF 360 Measurement Day is now sold out.

The ARF 360 Measurement Day Workshop will help the community better understand:

  • The Marketer’s Perspective on Channel Planning
  • Touchpoints: Will This Work in the US?
  • Media & Agency Positions on Channel Planning

Alan Wurtzel, President of Research & Media Development at NBC Universal will also kickoff with a “$1 Billion Media Lab – Chapter 2: Update from Vancouver.”
