Expectations for media agencies are higher than ever. As transparency, brand safety, and performance requirements place more pressure on buyers, how are agencies adapting and finding ways to both efficiently and effectively engage the right audiences?

Next week, media buying leaders will share their stories at the Digiday Media Buying Summit. Hosted in sunny Palm Springs, California from February 25th to the 27th, the event will explore changes in the agency landscape, concerns facing the industry, emerging technologies, and opportunities to look forward to in 2020.

While dozens of speakers will take the stage — from companies like Apple, Horizon Media, OMD, and numerous other brands & agencies — these are the sessions we’re looking forward to most:
